Tim Schou, former frontman of A Friend In London (Eurovision 2011), has released his latest single: Nirvana. He will also embark on a club tour, visiting Denmark and Germany.

Tim Schou has found his personal Nirvana, his latest single telling how he’s discovering the world around him. The former lead singer of A Friend In London, who represented Denmark at Eurovision 2011, describes Nirvana in his own words:

The best thing I know is to travel, not knowing where I am tomorrow and let life pull its surprises on me. Nirvana is in many ways a song about escaping and let your dreams show the way. I hope it inspires and make people wanna go explore the world on their own.

The accompanying lyric video by Paul Wilson and Nadja Rasmussen from Yellow1.dk shows pictures of Tim Schou’s past career and life, expressing the road he has travelled so far, and the adventures that may await him.

Tim Schou explains:

The video is a raw and honest resume of the last couple of years on the move as a couch surfing singer and songwriter around the world, Berlin, LA, Ghana, Sweden, Tokyo, Denmark, etc.

Nirvana was written by Tim Schou himself, Mike Green and Nico Hartikainen. Production by Mike Green.

Nirvana is also available at Spotify:

Nirvana lyrics

Back to my friends running naked through the sprinklers 
Back when we were all just brothers and sisters
Back to the street where I first met you
when momma didn’t cry over my tattoos 
Back out there behind the vines
I told you show me yours I show you mine
Those days are gone now I know it’s true 
I’m just reminiscing on blue avenue 
 
Imagine what a great escape 
To go oh so far away 
Nobody will know when we elope at night 
So come with me now for a magic ride 
 
Close your eyes 
And see the light 
God I love this  
Magic ride 
This is Nirvana 
This is Nirvana 
This is Nirvana 
 
Treasure hunts on my birthday 
You me the sun on a free way
My hands way down the cookie jar now
Hold up yea it won’t be long now 
Meet me under the Sycamore tree 
Come let’s fly far far away
I’m a broken boy 
With a broken toy 
But you’re so sweet like Almond joy 
 
Imagine what a great escape 
To go oh so far away 
Nobody will know when we elope at night 
So come with me now for a magic ride 
 
Close your eyes 
And see the light 
God I love this  
Magic ride 
This is Nirvana 
This is Nirvana 
This is Nirvana 
I’m all grown up now
Higher stakes 
But it won’t be long now
Dips on the birthday cake 
 
Close your eyes 
And see the light 
God I love this  
Magic ride 
This is Nirvana 
This is Nirvana 
This is Nirvana
