2 steg från Paradise is the sixth studio album by Swedish singer Håkan Hellström, released on October 13, 2010. It was produced by Håkan Hellström in collaboration with Joakim Åhlund. Many of the songs were written together with The Soundtrack of our Lives' guitarist Björn Olsson, who also produced Hellström's third studio album Ett kolikbarns bekännelser. A double A-side single featuring "Saknade te havs" and "River en vacker dröm" was released prior to the album, on September 11. "River en vacker dröm" was originally meant to be performed at the current year's edition of Way Out West only. However, nearing the release of the album, Hellström chose to record it as well.[2]
