Violeta Violeta

Violeta Violeta is a series of studio albums by Norwegian alternative rock group Kaizers Orchestra, comprising their sixth, seventh, and eighth studio albums. This album trilogy will be released throughout 2011 and 2012.[1] Vol. 1 is expected in January/February 2011, Vol. 2 is expected in November 2011, and Vol. 3 is expected in November 2012.



In 2007, band founder and main songwriter Janove Ottesen hit a major creative boon and composed two to three songs every day for ten days. General information was provided regarding their next studio album in 2009, citing a 2011 release. Later, the band announced the Studio Tour, a four-concert tour of Norway whose proceedings would go to finance the new album. Concert attendees were given a mail-in letter for a limited edition version of the first album in the series. The albums' title and format, owing to Ottesen's extensive songwriting sessions in 2009, was revealed on February 10, 2010; the day of the first show of the Studio Tour.


Recording sessions for the first of three albums began on February 28, 2010, in Duper Studios in Bergen. Jørgen Træen, Yngve Sætre, as well as Ottesen acted as producers. On March 11, Ottesen revealed that 12 songs had been recorded in 12 days, completing the first album in the trilogy. The recording of additional instrumentations such as strings and orchestra will follow.


Lyrics for all songs are in the Norwegian language. Lyrics and music by Janove Ottesen, unless otherwise noted.
