For over 30 years, fans have been waiting. On January 8, Jakob Hellman will release his second album, "Finally Gone". That it is long-awaited is the biggest understatement in three decades.

He came from nowhere and changed everything. At least if you mean "nowhere"small northern village Vuollerim and by "everything" means the direction for Swedish-language pop music.

Jakob Hellman broke through with a bang in 1989 when his debut album "... and the big sea" was released. Songs like "Be friends" and "She has a way" introduced a new way of writing songs in Swedish, with its wordy lyrics and an expression consisting of equal parts naivety and melancholy.

With his "... and the big sea", Jakob Hellman wrote both about the rules of the game for Swedish pop and into himself in the history books.

Kent, Håkan Hellström and Veronica Maggio are all artists who are hard to imagine without the doors Jakob Hellman's debut album opened. The album is repeatedly listed as one of the best ever when the country's music history is to be summarized. But it also became his only.
