Gut Feeling

Album: Darker Days (2018)
  • "Gut Feeling" was inspired by a real-life conflict within the band that happened just before the trio's first gig in the US after their previous album, Breakin' Point. Bjorn was waiting for the soundtrack backstage in the Nashville club where they were performing. Suddenly, the lines, "I think we need to talk about it, if we don't wanna live without it" came to him.

    "We had played together for almost 20 years and I felt we really needed to talk and straighten some things out, otherwise the band would maybe cease to exist," he shared to Billboard. "We actually did talk on that tour, and conflicts were resolved. It all became fun again."
