Labudova pesma (trans. Swan Song) is the eleventh studio album from Serbian and former Yugoslav rock band Riblja Čorba, released in 1992.

Recording and reception[edit]

As Yugoslav wars broke out in 1991, the band intended to release Labudova pesma as their last album (and named the album according their decision), but eventually changed their decision to disband. Album was recorded in Vienna at the end the first year of the wars. On the album recording, the band cooperated with Oliver Mandić. The intention was for Mandić to become an official band member (as the keyboardist), however, due to the fight between Mandić and the band's frontman Bora Đorđević, the cooperation ended and the songs "Vukovar", "Prodavnica snova", "Zbogom pameti", "Sta jos mozes da mi das" and "Na pola puta do srece" written by and recorded with Mandić were not released on the album. The album was released through the independent record label Samy.

Although Đorđević would soon become an active supporter of the Serbian troops in Republika Srpska and Republika Srpska Krajina, the album included a number of anti-war songs: A cappella "Dok padaju glave", prayer "Amin", and "Rat je završen". Nevertheless, the album's only hit was "Kad sam bio mlad", a cover of Eric Burdon's song "When I Was Young".

Album cover[edit]

The album cover was designed by Jugoslav Vlahović.
