"There is something exciting and unexplored in Havana. I like the expressions which are diffuse and that can not quite be placed but stand for themselves."

In those words Luna Green describes the choice of Havana, Cuba, as the location for her new album, "The Havana Sessions" which completes an album trilogy, published in a single year, consisting of the self-titled debut and the acclaimed sequel, "Swedish Strawberries".

The recordings were made in a sizzling hot Havana during two sessions in the spring of 2014 with acclaimed local musicians from Cuba and material spanning over newly written, to new recordings of earlier material and interpretations of other songs that Luna loves.

The album includes two new songs, "Showtime" and first single "Neptune". Luna describes the latter as follows:
"I like to study the planets, and Neptune is a strong symbol for me. It is the planet which in Roman mythology was the symbol for rivers, lakes and rain. A less powerful counterpart of Poseidon, but also seen as a symbol of the collective unconscious, compassion, unconditional love and escapism. The song is written as a floating euphoric love feeling constructed in the imagination."

Among the interpretations we find specially selected songs from Tom Waits ("Tempation"), Peggy Lee ("Why Do not You Do Right"), Atomic Swing ("Mosquitos On Mars"), Kent ("Kräm") and The Soundtrack Of Our Lives ("Gran Canaria"). "Gran Canaria is my favorite song of TSOOL. I like songs with double meanings and I hear both a small personal loneliness, confusion and maladjustment, while there are some larger more spiritual meanings behind it. I recognize so much of that - you can easily feel stuck between two eyes in life."

"The Havana Sessions" released on National, digitally and physically on November 12 in 2014.
