After taking the world of rock music by storm with last year’s surprise hit Amber Galactic, which was nominated for a Swedish Grammy and accompanied by a European tour that left fans speechless, Swedish classic/progressive rock super group THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA are set to releasetheir impatiently awaited next album, Sometimes The World Ain’t Enough on June 29 via Nuclear Blast.
Today, the band releases the fourth video trailer in which they talk more songs of the much anticipated new album. Learn more here: https://youtu.be/XJN0QLIa6t4
Recently the band also released the official music video for the brand new song, “Lovers In The Rain”.
The real life/animation mash up video was created by renowned artist Elia Cristofoli of Solingo who also made the infamous video for last year’s hit single “Gemini”. Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/f7zcmpdg0so
Commented the band: “‘Lovers in the Rain‘ is the soundtrack of the way it felt when you held the hand of your first true love for the first time. Happiness so intense, your heart beating so fast that it almost feels like a panic attack. And in the back of your head, you’re already mourning the fact that one day it will all be over. But during those first trembling moments, you know that nothing will ever be the same again. From now on, you will always compare every life experience to these first magic moments.
‘Lovers in the Rain‘ is an homage to the anthems of our youth, the songs that made us believe that in every life; no matter how insignificant you might feel sometimes, you will someday have that experience with someone. Hopefully with THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA playing in the background. And believe us, we’ve all been there.
This song, like the whole new album, is about those moments when you transcend reality and might for one fleeting moment catch a glimpse of the otherworldly. It’s for each and every one of you, with love from THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, remembering everyone we’ve ever loved and lost.”

Commented the band:
“Recording the video for our first single ”This Time”, was like combining different dimensions in a space cocktail. Numerous times during the video shoot, band members had to call the tax authorities, to confirm their names in the register, to make sure they had not lost all contact with reality. The result is surely mesmerizing and will take you on a journey that will be hard to digest. This is also our first video featuring the ”The Airline Annas”, our beautiful and super talented back up singers. They certainly made this video sparkle. The song itself, is the album opener and might not be representative for the whole album – no song really is, but we just like it that way. We make albums and each and every song leads it‘s own little life and together they form a celebratory album with class, hooks and a bass that could walk a million miles without stopping for a drink. This trailblazer of a song used to be just ours, now it‘s yours too. Enjoy!”
Just like 2017’s Amber Galactic, the album will feature two different cover artworks (see above) for the regular and limited editions.

2017’s Amber Galactic was awarded as “album of the month” in various renowned European music magazines such as ROCK HARD (Germany), ROCK HARD (France), SWEDEN ROCK MAGAZINE (Sweden), POWERMETAL.DE (Germany), UNITED ROCK NATIONS (France).
The album also reached high soundcheck positions in other magazines:

When asked about the direction of NFO within the realm of classic rock, Strid explains with a chuckle:“Most other classic rock bands sound like weed or LSD – we sound like cocaine.”
Amber Galactic was recorded at Handsome Hard Studio in Lund, Sweden. The album follows THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA‘s two previous releases, 2012‘s Internal Affairs and 2015‘s Skyline Whispers.
