Recording the 4th Airbag album!

It’s exciting times! We’ve started recording our 4th album and the follow-up to Greatest Show on Earth. I’ve been writing new songs since last fall, starting in the middle of releasing my own album, and we’ve spent the winter and spring rehearsing and sorting out the arrangements.

Henrik, our drummer, tracking drums this weekend at Subsonic Society in Oslo, with engineer and long-time Airbag collaborator (and bass player in my live band) Vegard Sleipnes. We plan on wrapping up the sessions this week and the rest of us will be laying down bass, guitars, keys and vocals throughout the summer and early fall.

Be sure to follow the recording process on my Facebook page and on Instagram.

  1. Great work indeed. I was looking forward to hearing it for quite a while and I am very happy it was worth waiting for. Wish to see you guys perform live in New York city one of these days.
    Your Iranian fan.

  2. Big fan of your solo work and airbag.
    Maybe you should consider selling vinyl copies of the past three albums together with the new one. I’d love to support you guys. Identity seems especially difficult to find.

  3. hi Bjorn, cant wait for the new one. Info came down from Burningshed it’s going to be released in June. hitting preorder button as we speak.

  4. I’m excited to see your working on a new album. I’ve just about worn out the previous 3 CDs. I’ve listened to them so many times even at work at my antiques shop in NY. People ask me who am I listening to & I’m delighted to turn them on to your great music! Can’t wait & thanks for the wonderful music you make!!!

  5. I managed to look in occasionally at Gilmourish.com and only recently realised that the man behind the website was also responsible for some of the very best new music I’ve heard in years. Bjorn, I’ve now bought all the Airbag albums, and yours too, and I hope you keep cranking out Gilmourish guitar work for decades to come. I’ll be with you all the way!

  6. Believe it or not, I discovered Airbag today. I immediately became a fan.
    I was looking for a worthy successor to Pink Floyd, I think I just found it.
    See you in France for the next tour?!

    1. Hi Nigel! That’s something that the festival crew did. We don’t have anything else available but we’re looking into doing something for the new album. Thanks for your support!

  8. Dear Bjorn, first of all I love the music you are creating. I sent you an email recently about doing some writing for you. Sorry to pester, I’m just a frustrated writer who needs a chance. The email was sent to the gent in management, I realise you’re busy I just hope you have chance to read it, good luck for the future, Ian.

        1. Yes, we’re very busy… with Airbag and lots of other things :) Where would you publish the feature and how do you want us or me to contribute?

          1. I would send my work to your email address & you could look at it. Decide if you want to use it or not, then put your music to it. Thanks Ian.

              1. To be honest Bjorn I did that first & heard nothing. Might be nice if you let them know I will be sending some work then they are pre warned, thanks.

  9. Hello bjorn and all the other guys . Thats great News. I’m looking forward to hear about the New album and to See in Holland. A great place to giver a show is perhaps Zwolle at Hedon in the Netherlands. But when you choose for Helmond i’ll be there ofcourse. Bye bye and See ya all. Greetings from Willem.
