Flashback is the fourth studio album by Swedish singer/songwriter Darin Zanyar. It was released on 3 December 2008 in Sweden and became Darin's fourth top 10 album.



In mid-2007, Darin went into the studio to start work on his 4th studio album with producers such as Murlyn Music, Johan Bobäck and RedOne. Daris said "I have been writing songs since I was 14 years old, I have taken part in writing and co-producing all of the songs except for one on this record. It is important to me that people understand that I write my songs myself, since many don't think this is the case."[ citation needed ]

Darin enlisted the help of American singer Kat DeLuna for the lead single "Breathing Your Love" which was produced by RedOne. The single was released in October 2008 and charted at number 2 on the Swedish singles chart. [1]
