Lukas Graham grateful for ‘7 years’ legacy

Danish pop band Lukas Graham is returning to Manila for a concert at the New Frontier Theater on the evening of 22 October.

The band is fronted by talented lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lukas Forchhammer, rhythmic bassist Magnus Larsson and drummer Mark Falgren.

Having achieved global stardom with their hit track “7 Years,” Lukas Graham has garnered an immense fan base worldwide.

During a recent online interview, Forchhammer reflected on the impact of “7 years” on the band’s career.

“Every song has its own story, and I’m really grateful for what ‘7 Years’ did to our career. I love singing the song live.”

The singer said their creative journey has been a process of evolution.

“Every time I go to my studio, I sing and write songs about where I am in my life right now,” he said.

He emphasized the uniqueness of each song’s genesis, making it clear that replicating a song like “7 Years” is not within his artistic intentions.

“7 years is 7 years,” he stressed, underlining the importance of artistic growth and the significance of embracing the evolution of one’s craft.

Known for their emotionally charged hits like “7 Years,” “Love Someone” and “You’re Not There,” Lukas Graham is all set to captivate the hearts of Manila once again with soul-stirring melodies and impassioned lyrics.
