about

Max García Conover had an ambitious idea in 2015: write one song a week during one year. He bought an old motorhome, put his guitar and a notebook in it and traveled around the US with his wife and their dog. The ambitious plan turned out to be a realistic one: every week a new song was scribbled in the notebook. By mid-2016, Max had written more than sixty songs. The motorhome didn’t make it as long, and Max had to find other ways to travel. One of his journeys led him to Barcelona (Spain), where he played a show and ended up signing a record deal with a handshake and a toast to new friendship. The songs were taken off the road and recorded in the quiet of Max Garcia Conover’s home in Portland (Maine, USA) in the winter of 2016.

Track Name: New Sweden
new sweden

princess you’re not answering the letters i’ve been leaving on your doorsteps
i said the sun will shine on me
she said it hasn’t yet

wasn’t this supposed to be temporary just to pay the bills a bit
i said the sun will shine on me
she said it hasn’t yet

but the sun comes up over all of us
doesn’t it

in new sweden there’s a man i know
he makes his money working for rich folks
and he says the sun only shines on them

he worked jobs that he won’t work anymore
he says he broke his back working at his father’s store
and for what the sun never came out once

even though we ain’t got money i’m so in love with you honey
and the sun will shine on us i swear it’s coming

in the morning when i rise you bring a tear of joy to my eyes
and the streets will be lined with the yellow moose signs
in the snow capped pines you and i will be fine
we’ll be drinking red wine where the sun where the sun shines

but we’re running and we’re running short on time

because in new sweden there’s a man i know
and he died on sunday he was 32 years old
and i won’t wait for the sun anymore
