HÃ¥kan HellstrÃ¶m, born April 2 1974, is a Swedish musician. He made his big break in Sweden in the year 2000 with the song "KÃ¤nn ingen sorg fÃ¶r mig GÃ¶teborg" ("Don't feel sorry for me, Gothenburg"). In 2005, HÃ¥kan released his fourth album, NÃ¥t gammalt, nÃ¥t nytt, nÃ¥t lÃ¥nat, nÃ¥t blÃ¥tt, which is a collection of old material that never made it onto any of his albums and a few new songs. In 2006, following the birth of his son, he announced that he would take a break from touring and recording for a while. Despite this, he still plays occational gigs. Most recently, (July 8th, 2006) he held a concert on the Swedish Peace & Love-festival, in BorlÃ¤nge, to an audience of roughly 12 000 people, in a way taking a break from this break.
HÃ¥kan played drums in the Swedish indie pop band Broder Daniel between 1988 and 1994, and rejoined in 1997 to play the bass. Finally, he left the band again in 2003 to put complete focus on his solo career.
