ceo is the debut of The Tough Alliance's Eric Berglund. His first solo album will be released by Sincerely Yours/Modular on June 28. The mysterious intro on the label's site gives us this in the meantime (presumably the lyrics to the opening track,
All Around):

I've been all around your world
I have bounced on every horizon

Now I'm coming home

To face the demons on my own

I've been caught up running in circles

I leave it all behind

To challenge space, to challenge time

along with a video for the first single, Come With Me, which is out now on 7" and digital download:

The ceo website is just as intriguing, offering this as a biography:

ceo arises in 1981 and 1891. in 3064 and tomorrow. after ibrahimovic and before nectanebo II. before the dark ages and after spring break. before time was, ceo is.

ceo arises in miami, hell, holzschlag, the andes, sparta, chianti and wall street. in the antennae galaxies, kungsmässan, flushing meadows and the mariana trench. before space was, ceo is.

you may call me sophia, yukio, fanta, eric, kiki and krishna. and wii and whitney.

ceo is the photosynthesis and an aria, it is silence and virginity lost in a gang bang.
ceo is a bird in space and ceo is the space in a bird.
ceo is saliva, patrón, november rain and panic. it is a relief, a citrine and it is broken dreams.
ceo is the harlot, the prince the snake and the shaman. in a spyker c8 laviolette. and on a mirage.
ceo is raspberries and chlamydia, it is the shadow and it is a clapping game.
ceo is auroras and charlotte casiraghi. it is laser beams and a home by the ocean.
ceo is a lost love and rihanna's voice. it is hibernation, the spectacle and every breath you take.
ceo is platinum and it is valium, it is a quasar and it is a lie. ceo is a breech forest and a slamdunk.
ceo is the ashanti and ceo is seinfeld. it is eucalyptus, neon and a smile.
ceo is a war zone and a sanctuary. it is dukkha, dilla and the body of light.
ceo is cashmere, sweat, zooxanthellae and a stiletto. it is implosion technology and it is the match point.

ceo is you and you are me and i am ceo.

in eternity.

The Tough Alliance are one of my favorite bands and this first single sounds incredible. Definitely one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
