In That Dark Night: Upcoming single

As mentioned, a new single is coming soon. It's called "In That Dark Night" and is sort of a power ballad, or something like that, where Andreas Ulvo plays the piano and Max Eilert plays the bass. No guest artists this time, but in return, I play solo myself, even on a drum machine.
