The Night Flight Orchestra have released their first single of 2023, “The Sensation,” along with a music video. The song is a tribute to the late guitarist David Andersson and features the band’s signature blend of catchy melodies and danceable rock. 


The group comments:

The Sensation is the first in a series of brand new singles being released this year. 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


Björn Strid adds:

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. 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 cover art was inspired by a note written by David Andersson:

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.”
