The EP-series VOLUME 1: Acoustic Covers

Dear friends,

It’s almost ready: The first release in my new EP-series. This first ‘Volume 1’ is inspired by my many webcam-performances aka ‘Low Key/Late Night-sessions’ – watch them all on my YouTube-channel  – and features just me with an acoustic guitar doing 6 cover songs in a “Tim kind of way” – very minimalistic and intimate. The 6 songs are as follows: Shot In The Dark (Ozzy Osbourne), Enjoy The Silence (Depeche Mode), Next To Me (Emeli Sandé), Hunting High & Low (a-ha), How Am I Supposed To Live Without You (Michael Bolton) and A Way To Say Goodbye (Mike Viola). All recorded over a few days at STC Studios in Copenhagen by Frank Birch Pontoppidan in the fall of 2012.

The last song – A Way To Say Goodbye – is written by my good friend and fantastic singer/songwriter Mike Viola. Check him out! My version of his song – featured on this EP – is a duet with the lovely Gemma Hayes of whom I’ve been a huge fan for many years. Check her out! Last year I got the chance to perform a full show with Gemma in Aarhus, Denmark along with the boys in The Damn Crystals. What a night! There’s been talk of releasing some of the recordings from the show, but that’s another story…

Rehearsing with Gemma Hayes for the show in Aarhus, August 2011.

A couple of days ago I got the vinyl test-press of the EP and it’s sounds awesome! This kind of music sounds so amazing and warm on Vinyl!🙂

Listening to the vinyl test-press at the Mermaid Records-office.

The EP will be released in a limited 10″ vinyl-edition (with an MP3 download code included) and all copies will be numbered. The EP is already ready for (worldwide) pre-order from my web-shop

🙂

    Jeg stemmer for en eller anden udgivelse fra koncerten på Aarhus Rådhus med dig og Gemma. Det var virkelig virkelig godt og jeres stemmer lød fantastiske på hinandens sange.

    Hej Tim C.

    Er ked af at du ikke har taget “Caught in the arms” , med …… Jeg synes virkelig den er god ! er det egentlig din egen originale ?🙂

    hilsen en stor fan

    Great to finally shake your hand in Århus recently…
    You on an acoustic is just THE BEST !!
    Can’t wait !!

    Hej Tim.

    Har lige bestilt et eksemplar, og glæder mig til at modtage det🙂

    Et skår i glæden er dog, at vi kun får en MP3 download code !!! Det burde som minimum være i FLAC, og meget gerne i høj opløsning, såsom 24bit/96Khz, da vi efterhånden er mange der streamer musik seriøst. Troede du gik mere ind for kvalitet😦

    Held og lykke med den.

  10. Tonny Mortensen

    Hey
    Download code virker ikke..Webpage eksisterer ikke!!!!!!!!!!!
    Vh
    Tonny

  11. Tonny Mortensen

    Der kommer kommer username og password frem. hvad der det. Jeg har skrevet min kode og det nummer ind der står nederst. det virker ikke.
    Help please

  12. Hvornår kan man forvente den når man bestilte d. 12.12?

    Morten

    • Hej Morten. Hvis du bestilte d. 12 /12 og bor i DK, så burde den have været der nu. Hvis den ikke er, så er der størst sandsynlighed for at problemet ligger hos post danmark. Hvis den ikke dukker op efter jul, så kontakt Sony. De vil helt sikkert hjælpe dig: supportdk@sonymusic.com – Forsat god jul🙂 Tim

    Halløj,
    Jeg vil rigtigt gerne købe den, men har ingen pladespiller, og har ingen planer om at købe en. Og er lidt ked af, hvis jeg skal nøjes med mp3-kvalitet via download-koden. Kommer den på CD på et tidspunkt?

    • Hej Peter. EP’en udkommer kun på vinyl+download-code, samt på iTunes, Spotify og Wimp. Ingen CD version i Danmark. Tilgengæld har Japanerne valgt at springe vinyl-formattet over og udsende den på netop CD til Februar. Dog kun i Japan. Så enten skal du tage dig: 1. Købe pladespiller, 2. Tage dig til takke med MP3-udgaven eller 3. Bestille CD’en fra Japan når den udkommer🙂 Forsat god jul🙂 Tim

  14. HansJørgen

    Min søde datter og svigersøn gav mig EP’en i julegave.
    Selv om jeg har en grammofon, ville jeg downloade MP3’erne, men jeg får også den besked, at siden ikke eksisterer – DET ER DA IKKE GODT NOK!!!

    • Hej HansJørgen – Ingen grund til at råbe🙂 Der er jo altid en løsning på problemerne. Jeg forstår dog ikke at siden ikke skulle fungere, da den gør det for alle andre inkl mig selv? Der var problemer på selve udgivelses dagen, det er sandt – men det blev hurtigt fikset og skulle som sagt virke fint nu. Jeg går udfra at du har dobbelt-tjekket, men hvis ikke og problemet forsætter, så kontakt Sony Music. De vil helt sikker hjælpe dig : supportdk@sonymusic.com – Forsat god jul🙂 Tim

  15. HansJørgen

    Undskyld-det var ikke for at være højrøstet🙂 men nok nærmere et udslag af frustration:
    Iflg. den label, der sidder på coveret, skal man gå til http://www.myplaydigital.eu/timcepl for at downloade. Nu har jeg prøvet de første 30 gange, og hver gang får jeg beskeden, at siden ikke findes.

  16. Anne Birgitte Jensen

    Det virker – havde samme problem…..
    Super album…..

    Hej Tim, når jeg taster min download kode får jeg en meddelelse om den ikke er valid. Jeg har fået flere personer til at læse den for mig og vi er alle enige om de bogstaver og tal som der står. Hvad gør man så?

  19. Problemet har været der før, men løsningen er simpel : Det sidste tegn er ikke bogstavet l (altså lille L), men derimod tallet eet (1). Håber det hjælper. Tim

    Dear Mr. Christensen, Hi Tim,
    First of all a big thanks for your terrific acoustic show in Tivoli, located in Utrecht, The Netherlands. A Dutch “famous” singer, actor and DJ made a honest review about you and your album Superior already a couple of years ago (30 november 2009); it’s called NRC Rocks. (NRC is the best paper in the Netherlands). He said you are a truly, truly songwriter!!! I totally agree with him. At the end of the review Eric Corton said he would let us hear the beautiful “Song for Shelly” and told us he would walk away, because it was not possible for him to have is eyes dry listening to the song. http://tv.nrc.nl/video/rocks/article1365106.ece/Tim_Christensen
    Second, after your show in Tivoli, my wife and I wanted to score some EP/LP’s, but first we had to leave the theater and go to the bank somewhere in the city. We wanted the LP “Pure McCartney” and your EP “VOLUME 1: Acoustic Covers”. Before the show we already bought a CD, so after the show we missed only eighty cents…… and we had to go to a bank for some extra money, so we went as quickly as possible. Unfortunately all the EP’s “VOLUME 1: Acoustic Covers” were sold out when we came back. Next time we will prepare us much better. In your webshop the EP is also sold out. Is there any way to buy the EP anywhere. Would you reprint the EP again?
    Anyway, thanks for your music which is clever made, with beautiful surprising twists in tonality, but most of all they are truly truly songs!!!
    Kind regards,
    Ruben

    • Hi Ruben. Thank you for your comment! So glad to hear that you enjoyed the Utrecht show. I loved every minute of it myself too! A great night and a fantastic crowd. Sorry about the EP. I have a copy here with me and I’d be happy to send it to you. Could you try and contact me via https://www.facebook.com/TimChristensenMusic and we can discuss details? Thanks🙂 Tim
      PS. I know about Eric and that song btw.🙂

      • Ruben

        Hello Tim, thanks for replying. It’s great you can help me to get the beautiful EP. Knowing you must be a busy man, I appreciate it very much you want to spent some time for a stupid guy in the Netherlands who wasn’t fully prepared before going to a concert.
        I have tried to contact you on your Facebook account, but I figured out it’s not possible without having a account myself.
        My e-mail adres (without the space between the letters is):
        r u b e n f r e h e @ c a s e m a . n l
        My LinkedIn: http://lnkd.in/dPjCy7x
        Don’t spend much time about this, it’s better to spend time on composing a new song, or something else within your precious time. Far more important then me having the EP.
        Best regards,
        Ruben
