  Part one - him
It is early morning. The sunlight seeps through. The sheets are warm. Skin touches skin. Is this just a short, intense love affair? Or will it lead to something more? LOVERBOY dances before your eyes in Eurodisco-style. But in the stillness STAY pleads the heart’s cause. Does he dare to give in? Does he dare to see beauty? ”Love needs water to grow”. In BUTTERFLY, Marie featuring Duvestar, twin souls lift off the ground and sail out into the universe. ”My atoms are dancing with yours, We’re building castles on clouds”.

Produced by Martin Ekman, Oisin Lunny and Marie Glad in Sweden and in the UK.

Part two - her
Her hand is holding mine, tight. I couldn't have walked any line without her. My sister, my friend. DON'T GIVE UP honors the life force of sisterhood. It is encouragement wrapped in expansive sound. "She can mend a broken dreamer, in her hands you are a star". THIS WORLD is a requiem for a young life who left this planet too soon, an angry cry against the illusions of a world that drove her to leave. The odyssey of MIRRORS (feat. Duvestar) reflects the elements of earth travelling through sounds, a tribute to motherhood and mother earth. Three homages to her.

Produced in the UK by Rob Spectrum,
Oisin Lunny and Marie Glad.

Part three - oneself
I open the window to my inner room. The wind changes direction. BLOW takes me through the eye of the storm, underground passages and illusions. In ARISE (feat. Duvestar) my wings are put on fire. As if I have resurfaced again I wipe the dust off my feet. I have landed on the other side. "In a dreamland not far away". I dance. The whole way through IMAGINE SKIES. We dance. The dance of one heart without shame. The dance where we're all the same. The spiral of life unfolds itself. "On and on, till I naked stand. On and on, till I love myself".

Produced in the UK together with Luke Slott and Oisin Lunny. Mixed by Jessica Corcoran - mixingAudioPros.

Duvestar is the constellation of Marie Glad + Oisin Lunny, in Butterfly it marries acoustic and orchestral instrumentation with electronics. Mirrors brings together improvised vocals and intuitive performances with deeply experimental soundscapes and ambient "found sounds" to create a soundscape odyssey. Oisin is an Irish producer, DJ and composer for film who has previously worked with U2, Sinead O’Connor and Gangstarr. The Duvestar sound is open but intimate, modern but timeless, deep, bright, human, and full of hope.

Reviews on Bedroom Stories part one
"Marie's indie-pop sound is mellow and warm. Her uniqueness is shown through her music, honest songwriting."

(Hidden mixed tape, US)
"Swedish singer Marie Glad captures the essence of 'Broken English', Marianne Faithful's ground breaking 1979 album: Icy cold synths and angular New Wave topped off with well-worn vocals. Marie sounds like she's singing her heart out in the basement of long gone Matrix Studios in West London. The time warp is perfect right down to the crisp, larger than life drum sound."(Tuneraker, UK)

Reviews on Bedroom Stories part two
"We are entering a stark, ever so slightly threatening place lit up by fleeting moments of beauty. 'Bedroom Stories Pt.2′ continues Marie's musical journey into the mid-80's of the icy romantic imagery of bands like The Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil." (Tuneraker, UK)
