The Plan (2)

Profile:
The Plan is a Swedish band formed by Broder Daniel guitarist and subsequent bass player Theodor Jensen in 2000.

After having written own songs for a period of time, Jensen met organist Mikael Furugärde, drummer Niklas Korssell and bass player Peter Morén through mutual friends. The group recorded its first demo in the winter of 2000-2001 and were signed by EMI in early 2001.

The self-titled debut album was recorded during the summer of 2001 together with producer Ronald Bood, and at the time of its release in September that year, the first single "Mon Amour" was already climbing the charts. The album entered the Swedish charts at number 2, and was nominated for Grammis awards in four categories: best debut act, best album, best pop/rock group, and best composer. The album was followed by a tour in Europe, as well as performances at South by Southwest in Austin and CBGB in New York City.

However, despite the success of the band, drummer Niklas Korssell and bass player Peter Morén left the band in 2002 to pursue their own musical projects.

In 2004, Theodor Jensen left Broder Daniel, where he had been playing bass following Håkan Hellström's departure in 2002. The Plan's sophomore album "Embrace me beauty" was released in September that year and received mixed reviews. Later in 2004, organist Mikael Furugärde – whom Jensen considers his "ideologic brother" – left to focus on the finalization of his third novel, leaving the Plan a one man band.

The band's third record "Walk for Gold" was recorded with Theodor Jensen as the only permanent member under the supervision of producer Jari Haapalainen. It was released in October 2006 and was well received by music critics.

Although Theodor Jensen is the sole remaining member of the Plan, he decided not to release his 2009 solo album "Tough Love" under the Plan name, saying he was relieved to get away from its history.

In 2018 the band released From Worlds Away, in LP format.
