Earlier in 2013, Danish electronic pioneers Laid Back released Uptimistic Music Vol. 1 (a digital download-only release), their first studio album since 2004. The duo's long-awaited comeback was followed by critical acclaim and a series of live performances. While playing festivals in Ibiza, Georgia, Denmark, and the Faroe Islands in the summer of 2013, John Guldberg and Tim Stahl took the time to put the finishing touches on this release: Uptimistic Music, a double album featuring volume one and a second record of unreleased material. "Brother" was the album's first single: "The track originates from the mid-'80s and it talks about the brotherly feeling in us," explains Stahl. "Its lyrics are even more relevant today: 'Brother, time is running out.' We are well-aware of the fact that we are some old music industry geezers," says Guldberg jokingly. "Uptimistic Music is a combination of some old songs we had lying around -- that are still alive and kicking! -- and new songs we composed since our last album Happy Dreamer. Anything less than a double album wouldn't have been enough. The positive and timeless message that pervades our music is deeply-rooted in the way we think and express ourselves. A song should be judged on its longevity rather than its novelty," agree the two musicians, who have been friends for over 40 years.
