The forthcoming album from BritishPopSongs founder Ian Nilsen, “Stian Summer volume One”, is to be officially released 2016.


The BritishPopSongs founder and CEO have executive-produced the new album himself, billed as the first “original” album to penned by Ian Nilsen for himself. According to the label – the album “provides a real unique insight and no-holds-barred access to many of the secrets behind his working methods, recordings, artwork, photography and features probably some of his best works to date”.

Written and produced by entirely by himself, the album has been in the works for several years, due to the massive amounts of commitments Ian has both with his label and management activities.

“I discovered that many of the songs i wrote for myself build on a large amount of frustrations, things that i not often put in work that i do for other artists, so it has also been interesting for me to discover that part of me.”

After a false start with “She Told She Over Me Not “, his very first single as Stian Summer, the Volume One album contains 10 superbly produced pop classics in his trademark 80’s British song writing tradition blended with the kind of Swedish production of 2017 that he embraces so much. With his somehow unpolished voice, his big sounding synth-scapes and ultra catchy songs, Ian Nilsen introduces his full musical universe all at once and it could well be that it’s been well worth the wait in the end.

Higher Love, a Singles Club teaser edit taken from “Stian Summer Volume On”e is out on BritishPopSongs Singles Club imprint as a free download the 20th of February.

About the Stian Summer project….

It’s pop/punk for grown ups that doesn’t really wants to grow up, a kind of a youth culture of the grown ups.
It’s glamour although deep in thoughts, yet still capricious and fun.

the Stian Summer project is very much a solo project of Ian Nilsen, label manager at BritishpopSongs UK, a label he started in 2010 and that specialises in the great tradition of British music and songwriting all way through the 70’s, 80’s until today coupled with Swedish production traditions.

Stian Summer is as least partly virtual, unlike Ian, he’s in his 20’s still, but have experienced much more in life. Ian likes to say that he stopped growing any older turning 25.

“Stian Summer is an artist that simply does his own things, in the end it’s all about songs in the end” Ian Nilsen – February 2016

A range of great performers will be covering Stian Summer tracks and in many ways they are becoming him in their own kind of way.
