The Road Is Just A Surface - Standard Edition


Anja Garbarek returns with her first album in 13 years. The Road Is Just A Surface is a captivating blend of light and shadow, melody and drama. It is a story about the longing to move on.

The Road Is Just A Surface is the brand new album by renowned Norwegian artist Anja Garbarek. It is available in two editions, "Red" and "Yellow". The Red concept album is a dazzling and sinister soundscape that stretches for more than 70 uninterrupted minutes. On the Yellow edition, the songs have been edited and remixed to offer a different route into Garbarek's melodic pop art.

The Road Is Just A Surface is a creative, kaleidoscopic journey through the human mind. Anja has written all the melodies and lyrics, as well as producing and arranging the material with Kåre Chr. Vestrheim (Highasakite, Motorpsycho, Marit Larsen). The fourteen new pieces tell the story of Bob, who has become trapped in the maze of his own emotions. The Road Is Just A Surface is an album that truly stands out, tearing down the veil covering the world of dreams. It is surrealistic pop at its best, with catchy songs such as "The Will To Walk", "The Witness" and "Lazy Predator".
