The former Magnolia frontman has embraced his solo career releasing first-rate indie blues tracks such as the classic Lou Lou and most recently the gospel-inspired - Same Boat, which has an excellent video. The darker somewhat sombre tone of theses compositions provide an ideal sound for his lyrics and wonderfully unique vocal style.
However, The Weight is Gone marks a new development for the Swedish singer as this upbeat, swinging single immediately declares when pressed play. Albin has always been able to draw you in with his soulful vocals, and now together with a catchy chorus and infectiously funky beat means you'll find this track incredibly hard to resist - so don't even try!
We've been told The Weight is Gone sets the direction for the forthcoming album, and on this evidence, that album can't land soon enough.
