“‘The Sensation’ is the first in a series of brand new singles being released this year,” said The Night Flight Orchestra. “It carries everything this band is about: glorious riffage, soaring vocals, infectious rhythms and unforgettable melodies. The lyric is also a tribute to the late great David Andersson and the many journeys Björn shared with him.”
“This video shows the rise of a very young female star and the realization of what goes on behind the curtains, when the glitter fades,” added vocalist Björn Strid. “It shatters her universe but she rises above it in her grand debut in this deliciously tacky game show, where in the end winners are made and losers fade.”
The tributes to Andersson extend into the single’s artwork, which depicts an astronaut ascending to the stars. According to the band, this is a reference to a note left by Andersson which read in part: “Should anybody be reading this, I want you to know that I now am an astronaut. I’m on my way, somewhere out in space, with the aim of eventually being transformed into a ball of ice, with a tail of fire.”
