CEO (Eric Berglund of Tough Alliance), “Come With Me” MP3 + Video

If you missed it the first time around, CEO, aka Eric Berglund of The Tough Alliance, described his new solo project thusly:

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, kungsmassan, 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, patron, 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.

So that pretty much left us with nothing else to say. Other than, WELCOME BACK ERIC. Download below and read our Tough Alliance cover story from FADER #56 here.

    Don’t think it’s as good as TTA…

    It’s too early to make comparisons between CEO and TTA. But I like what I hear/see so far! Curious if Marcus Söderlund directed this vid … Japanese anime toys, Christian crucifixes, and Venetian masks… ever so slightly queer (always a good thing IMO) and totally fabulous!! Ya, so I’m hooked. And now we wait… for another SY e-mail… sigh…

    I agree with you Delia it’s too early to make comparisons between CEO and TTA. Both are great forces but please don’t compare in a negative way. Perhaps say it in a way constructive way and why it’s not as good as TTA, please be more specific.

    This is a beautiful song, top of my playlist for weeks! So thankful for your art and music. I just premiered this video for my parents during our afternoon lunch in 29 Palms, CA. It’s great to get their perspective on this, my mom said “He went on a hero’s journey.” I said, “He sure did!”
