so for the last year i’ve been writing a new dead soul album together with Anders, and we’re just about to mix this thing.
i’ve also mixed and worked on many other projects soon to be revealed which is awesome but time flies and no new niels nielsen music no no no.
well, i actually just finished writing my new album. i’ve got 16 new songs down on paper and the recordings will begin in april.
It’s 10 years since I released my first album by the way… speaking of time flies..
I touched this guitar today. I guess it’s the ultimate pop guitar I’m I right?

dont answer questions you dont know the answer to
so i let spotify analyze my 2014 music listening and come up with a list of songs that i might appreciate as an appetizer for 2015.
i hated every single song.
i’m very glad i have two ears and a brain and can make my own playlists.
this is what happens if you let other people dictate your taste.
i didn’t mention it earlier, but my latest record was actually for the most part done over 10 years ago. i don’t remember exactly, but i think i started doing the songs in 2003 and finished them 2004. but i never came around to release them.
a few weeks ago i was listening to some old songs and found them. i still liked them, so i mastered them in my iphone ear buds and uploaded it to spotify.
you can hear it on spotify -here- and download it from itunes -here-
a sweet review of the new album
Niels Nielsen – How Nothing Was Won (spotify)
so this is my new album ‘how nothing was won’ and it’s available for download and streaming below:
i made a new album called ‘how nothing was won’ and this is the tracklist
pop is dead
lost found and lost again
about 31 minutes running time
available in a just few days i believe
the reason why i am releasing this is because my volvo will die any minute (it’s a great car but it’s really not holding together anymore – its very sad the whole story) so if you have any money to spare please buy the itunes version when it comes out (if you like the music). i only have to sell about 300-400 album downloads to afford a newer (2001) volvo. if i could buy that volvo i would be the happiest guy ever. if you’d rather stream the album on spotify i would need about a few millionmegazillion streams to be able to buy the car. i do like spotify but it’s really hard to buy a volvo for the revenue. and we’re still talking about a 13-14 year old car here – it’s not a ferrari. so a few millionmegazillion streams … that means you have to listen to it a few thousand million times each and that seems a bit over the top. i like the album but it’s not that great. of course that was a bit humorous, my car is actually dying but that is not the reason why i’m releasing this album. but it seems that every new album release should come with a pr stunt so i thought this would be funny – now of course i spoiled everything, its quite obvious that i just want the attention.
though i would describe the album as ‘really good’ or ‘probably his best so far’. perhaps ‘stunning’.
i’ll post some links when it’s out
I’m opening a new studio real soon.
i’m gonna take pictures..
