Attentive readers might have in mind that Thomas Dybdahl is about to conquer the UK with his music. Starting today, you can download his first UK release, the B A Part EP, including something that has been a dear request from the fans – a live recording.
You can download the digital EP at Amazon
or at almost any online music store including iTunes (Norway/Denmark excluded), Musicload, Rhapsody, 7 Digital and Play.
// 2. Concert in Copenhagen almost sold out
While you download the EP, you should know that if you were planning to see Thomas Dybdahl live at Copenhagen’s new Koncerthuset on Sept 14th (accompanied by the Danish radio orchestra) you really need to hurry. Almost all of the tickets have already been sold yet. You can yours at billetnet.dk.

// 4. Thomas and his giraffe
This heading might sound a little strange to you, but here you go:
A guy from Thomas Dybdahl’s current home town Stavanger, Ola Helland, has accepted a bet that he will be able to collect 1.000.000 hand-drawn giraffes until 2011. Anyone who wants can contribute to his collection, and there is no restriction in quantity, so you can well take your pens out and draw him 1.000 giraffes for a start.
Thomas has taken the chance to draw his own one. See it at http://olahelland.net/giraffes/?id=6865
and be sure to add up your own giraffes.
// 5. John Wayne live video
A little goodie from a recent concert has been put up for your viewing and listening pleasure. See and hear John Wayne recorded live at The Borderline, London from May 13th at the official Dybdahl YouTube channel
// 6. Twitter address change
You know, Thomas tries hard to accomplish modern digital life. For you all being able to still follow him, we need to let you know that Thomas changed his twitter address to twitter.com/thomasdybdahl
. All other places have stayed the same.
Hope this summer’s getting a lot of you people out there to see Thomas and his band live on European stages. In all cases: spread the word!
All the best
