Nightingale's sixth album, "White Darkness", was released in June 2007 via Black Mark. The Cd was recorded at a big theater, with many of the songs having been tracked as live as can be in the studio, giving them that little extra spark of life often missing in modern productions.
The term "White Darkness" is an expression that lead singer and lyricist Dan SwanÃ¶ used to describe the state of mind he was in during the aftermath of his divorce. Most of his lyrics on this album are diaries from months of soul searching. During this dark period Dan did not write much music, so his older brother Dag SwanÃ¶ (formerly known as Tom Nouga) stepped in, armed to his teeth with killer songs from the past and the present.
