When I heard the Eric from The Tough Alliance was coming out with a solo album under the name ceo I got really excited, and then I was sent the album and gave it a listen and I’m in love. I know you’re probably sick of hearing that whatever music someone is pitching is “perfect for summer” but believe me, ceo‘s upcoming album White Magic is the album for summer, as of right now at least. Check out the “prologue” video below, glance over the tracklisting and give a listen to one of my favorite tracks from the album (there’s only eight but they’re all winners).

1. All Around
3. Love and Do What You Will
4.  White Magic
5. Oh God Oh Dear
6. No Mercy
7. Come With Me
8. Den Blomstertid Nu Kommer

White Magic is out on Modular June 29
