With nearly a million streams under his belt for its two lead singles ‘Say That’ and ‘Lose It All? (What If)’, and top 25 spots on both Spotify’s Global Viral Chart and USA Viral Chart along the way, as well as previous support from Dancing Astronaut, Good Music All Day, YourEDM and Hype Machine, among others, fast-rising genre-bending Swedish artist, producer and musician Finis Mundi is proud to unveil his highly anticipated debut album titled EVERYTHING AFTER.
Recorded in Sweden and Germany, EVERYTHING AFTER sees Finis Mundi collaborating with exciting new artists from across the world, including German artist and songwriter Novaa, who has racked over 12 million streams on Spotify, with support from BBC Radio 1, COLORS, and Indie Shuffle, and Australian artist Akacia, who has been backed by triple j, Complex and Majestic Casual, with over 10 million streams under her belt. American native Lilianna Wilde, and UK artist Island Fox also contribute, to give the album a truly global flavor.
Thematically, the album explores the different stages that we have all experienced in a doomed love story, from the initial falling in love moment, to the sometimes false sense of confidence in the relationship, down to the inevitable breakup and ensuing loneliness, every emotion is perfectly expressed and conveyed on this record by Finis Mundi and his carefully handpicked collaborations, which also includes fellow Swedish artist/producer August Vinberg, who has previously worked with Camila Cabello, Iggy Azalea, Icona Pop and MNEK, to mention a few.
The record kicks into gear with the hugely popular fan-favourite ‘Say That’ featuring Novaa, and the infectious bass heavy piano-driven ‘Money’ featuring Lilianna Wilde, about meeting someone that’s just too good to be true, before transitioning into the slow-building tropical-esque Akacia collaboration ‘Away’, and the album’s second single ‘Lose It All? (What If)’, to the fitting curtain closer ‘Loveless’ featuring Island Fox, which rounds up the album perfectly.
Speaking about the inspiration for EVERYTHING AFTER, Finis Mundi says, “for me, ‘EVERYTHING AFTER’ isn’t about a breakup per se, but it is more about the raw emotional and physical journey you go through, in the aftermath of a relationship, and how you fight with your inner-self between the past and the present. I’m not quite comfortable dealing with blame and stupid games, either in relationship or dating; I’m more into reflections, and this is what this record is about”.
Expanding on the album’s concept further, Finis Mundi adds that, “Instead of dwelling on the usual blame game, I’d rather talk about how we as humans evolve over time, how someone deals with past emotions to become something even stronger than before. What’s so ironic about the whole album is that it’s not about a certain person who has been in my life, but it is about the different stages that one of my best friend and I went through in dealing with our past relationships, a while ago”.
