Danish artist and songwriter Ivan Stenger, will release his new ‘ Skin Tuxedo’ album titled ‘Harlot of the night’ on November the 15th.
..The new songs came very natural to me as I wrote a lot of them on the piano instead of guitar.
It helped me to think a little out of the box and try out different song structures. Some of the songs have rather odd drum sounds and rhythms.
I also had the need to expand the genre of Skin Tuxedo. I tried to create a more original and unique sound this time.
I also needed to put more soul and atmosphere into it inspired by the more Indie music and even Folk.
Lyrically I was inspired by the choices we make as human beings and the psychology behind it.
