Kristoffer Gildenlöw unveils the first single, accompanied by a stunning video, from his upcoming album 'Empty,' set to release on February 8, 2024.


The video narrates the story of a young woman who falls ill. While in the 'in-between' world, she encounters 'The Harbinger of Sorrow,' tasked with guiding her to the 'other side.' The young woman pleads with the harbinger for another chance at life.


After some negotiation, the harbinger agrees to grant her an additional 50 years—no more, no less.

Born in 1978 in Eskilstuna, Sweden, Kristoffer embarked on his international musical journey as the bass player for the progressive hard rock sensation Pain of Salvation.

Transitioning to The Netherlands in 2003, Kristoffer diversified as a session player, collaborating with renowned acts like Neal Morse (US), Lana Lane (US), Damian Wilson (UK), KAYAK (NL), and many more.

Anticipate the release of his fifth solo album, 'Empty,' on February 8, 2024. Kristoffer's dedication to authenticity is evident in his meticulous approach to sound.

He collaborates with guest musicians, collects unique sounds, and records with real instruments to capture the essence of imperfection that defines perfection in his eyes: “Perfection lies within imperfection”.


Introducing 'Empty,' the fifth solo masterpiece by Kristoffer Gildenlöw, a musical journey that began its recording alongside the album 'Homebound' in 2019.


Influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, and Mike Oldfield, Kristoffer Gildenlöw injects his own distinctive sound into 'Empty,' crafting a unique homage to his musical inspirations.


Deviating from traditional concept albums with linear narratives, Kristoffer's approach is theme-based. 'Empty' invites listeners into various situations, environments, states of mind, and emotions—encouraging reflection and connection.


The album prompts contemplation on whether our existence, as observed by the creator, might be deemed a colossal mistake, sparking the question:


Is it time to embark on a new beginning?
