Norwegian space disco mastermind Lindstrøm (aka Hans-Peter Lindstrøm) released a new album, It’s Alright Between Us As It Is, last October via Smalltown Supersound. Now he has shared a brand new single, “Blinded By the LEDs.” It was shared in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Oslo’s Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, a waterside modern art gallery and venue. He is performing three sold out performances at the venue on August 23, 25, and 26. As a press release points out, the events “take place exactly 50 years after the legendary Norwegian contemporary composer Arne Nordheim performed ‘Solitaire,’ an electro-acoustic contemporary composition, on opening night in 1968.” Listen to the song below.

In describing its influences, a press release says “Blinded By the LEDs” is “a reference to both Bruce Springsteen and Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. And rather than riff on Nordheim’s musique concréte, Lindstrøm has woven his own signature tapestry of influences and inspirations into the song, including Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill,’ ESG’s ‘Moody,’ Queen’s ‘Back Chat,’ Liquid Liquid’s ‘Cavern,’ Sheryl Lee Ralph’s ‘In the Evening,’ John Carpenter’s ‘Assault On Precinct 13,’ and Lindstrøm’s own ‘Fast & Delirious.’”
