When Carl Emil Petersen released the song København with his now-defunct band Ulige Numre in 2011, it was clear to all that he was gifted with the same sense of big city moodiness that has given us some of the best Danish folk and rock songs over the decades.

After Ulige Numre went their separate ways, Carl Emil Petersen continued on the path to greatness, releasing critically acclaimed albums such as Amager Forbrænding in 2019 and Skillelinjen in 2023. In 2015, the song Frit Land was inducted into Højskolesangbogen, the most prestigious collection of Danish songs, psalms, and folk standards. A testament to the songwriting skills of Carl Emil Petersen. Timeless songs for the equally timeless Tivoli Gardens.
