Album: 5 Billion In Diamonds (2017)

  • Lyrics
  • 5 Billion In Diamonds is a trio comprising Garbage drummer and producer Butch Vig, UK producers James Grillo and Andy Jenks. This is one of several tracks from their self-titled debut album that features guest vocals by Ebbott Lundberg from Soundtrack Of Our Lives.
  • Butch Vig explained to HMV.com how the collaboration came about:

    "One of the first singers that we thought of was Ebbot Lundberg from The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. James and I went to a show, they were playing a festival somewhere and we were backstage. We had had several glasses of wine, so there was a lot of bravado in us. We just sort of barged into their dressing room and started talking to Ebbot saying 'Hey man, we have this band, you want to sing with us?', and he goes [puts on Swedish accent] 'Ja, I would like to do that'. It just happened that easy and, I swear to God, four days later he was down in Bristol recording some of the first tracks that we did together."
