Sax Solo, catchy riffs, and relatable Norwegian lyrics; Erlend Ropstad gives us everything that's great and releases this year's festival anthem!

The award-winning artist and songwriter Erlend Ropstad is finally back with new music, kicking off the summer with the song "Alt som var bra" ("Everything That Was Good"). Big riffs and catchy rock meet poetry, and the song's rhythm and feel are tailor-made for the expansive plains when festival season arrives.

Erlend Ropstad shares: "I wanted to release this song before summer because it's such an obvious festival banger in my ears. The goal is, of course, for everyone to sing along."

Listen to the single here:

With a total of eight Norgian Grammy nominations and numerous awards such as the Prøysen Award, and the Gammleng-Award, Erlend Ropstad has built a reputation as one of the foremost and most credible voices in Norwegian rock. The new single also features delightful collaborations, and with an impressive saxophone solo, the song truly gives us everything that's great.

Ropstad says, "The wonderful thing about the song is the big guitar chords, and I managed to get Lars Horntveth to channel his inner Clarence Clemons with a proper sax solo, and Mathias Eick joins in on trumpet during the riffing towards the end. Awesome track."
