NEW ALBUM OUT

SELECTED contains nine songs from Troels’s past. Five songs are remixes of old recordings, while four songs have been recorded last year. Everything is newly mixed and mastered.

New Single Out 7th October 2022

Troels’s new single Treat Me Nice is coming out on October 7th on all streaming platforms. We hope you will welcome it by listening and sharing it.
Troels composed this song years ago with the help of his friend, lyricist Kim Heibon.
The recording with his band, though, is quite new and it shows everyone at their best.
