This is the third album by Swedish indie-pop band Lacrosse. After a four-year long hiatus since album number two, the band needed new input and teamed up with Swedish producer Henrik Svensson, known for his involvement with Swedish luminaries Moneybrother, Existensminimum, Fint Tillsammans, and many more. The album was recorded in three different studios in Stockholm, Sweden during a total of two weeks, including mixing and mastering. "These songs were written between 2009 and 2012, and they were constantly changing for three years. But when it was time to press 'record,' it all came together magically. It feels like we finished the songs at just the right moment." Lots of things happened on a personal level for the band during these past three years. One member left the band, some became parents, and so forth. "The songs mirror the times we've lived in, but the general idea behind this album is unselfish love in times of extreme self-centering. The whole process was very organic, with the feeling that anything was possible. This was all thanks to Henrik Svenssons' creative genius who challenged us and our ears. He showed us that Lacrosse can be so much more than we knew before." Lacrosse has a knack for writing albums that will have you bouncing on the brightest-lit dancefloor and crying in the darkest corner. The songs on Are You Thinking of Me Every Minute of Every Day? are still bouncy and upbeat and with the characteristic dark nuance in the lyrics, but this time the whole sound has a more experimental production that brings you on a journey through time and space. "This is the best driving music I've heard in years," claims Gunther Buskies, CEO of Tapete Records. "I wish the Autobahn was longer." The fantastic food artwork is by Norwegian artist Ida Frosk. They sent ideas to each other for a bit and then she created the cover. "The title is not meant to be taken seriously. We understand that no one is thinking about Lacrosse all of the time, every minute of every day. If they are, they are not well and need professional help."
