“I Solnedgången” is the tenth studio album from Mando Diao.
The band had the ambition to bring out the humanism in the music and lyrics which feature compositions of poems by Karin Boye, Nils Ferlin and Gustaf Fröding mixed texts from the members themselves and Björn Dixgård’s parents.
They did the recording in Borlänge, live, with only a few microphones in the room to capture the ambient sound. Everything was done completed in four days.
