This has been an interesting journey for me. Writing this album has forced me to learn a lot of new recording techniques as I have entered the world of electronic music.

New indie label startup OK!Good Records is proud to announce the North American release of “And When Everybody Is Watching,” the debut album from the Swedish electronic-pop project called Hen Ree. The album will be available on iTunes, Amazon and at major retailers on Tuesday, May 8th. However, impatient fans don’t have to wait for the official release date to hear the album. OK!Good Records has pre-released the album on their website (http://www.okgoodrecords.com), where it can be streamed for free and also purchased.
Hen Ree is the solo project of Rickard Olsén, lead singer of the Swedish alternative rock band The Windupdeads. Fans of Olsén’s previous work should expect the same quality of music in a completely different style, as he takes on the realm of electronic pop rock with his new release, “And When Everybody Is Watching.”
Hen Ree says of his new project, “This has been an interesting journey for me. Writing this album has forced me to learn a lot of new recording techniques as I have entered the world of electronic music.” “And When Everybody Is Watching” is a glimpse into Hen Ree’s past, with the lyrics retelling short stories about dealing with life in suburbia: “I felt that it was time to write lyrics that were connected to me and my background, and it gave me a lot of inspiration revisiting these memories and places.”
Produced by long-time friend and Windupdeads band mate Marcus von Boisman, “and When Everybody Is Watching” is a compelling electronic album that connects the listener emotionally to Hen Ree’s personal life.
“I Will Follow You,” a collaboration with electronic music artist Schiller, was featured on the Schiller album “Breathless” released by OK!Good Records in 2010. Two extended remixes of that song are included as bonus tracks on this debut disc.
