EMI Argentina decides to release Marie’s compilation

[img_assist|nid=1522|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=300|height=300] All of a sudden, EMI-Odeón Argentina has just decided to release the latest compilation by Marie, "Tid för tystnad". What makes this even stranger is that the company refused to release both "The Change" and "Son Of A Plumber", which were sung in English (and hence, had a wider potential market).

The CD looks exactly like the European edition, and it has an sticker in the back that reads (in Spanish): "Product to be sold exclusively in South America, except Brazil". Just for the record, this is the first Swedish album by Marie to be available out of Sweden since the Japanese edition of "I en tid som vår" in 1997.

This is the first Marie (or Per) solo album ever printed and released in Argentina. Some of their older albums used to be available at the stores, but they were imports.

"Där du andas" - Lyrics

Där du andas Spöken och spel tvivel och tvång Månen går upp den ser vad du vill Lyser i natt och strålarna följer mig de hör mig viska att Där du andas där du älskar där vill jag leva min stund på jorden Där vi sjunger ska alla himmelens änglar få lust till samma sång Ljudet av oss klingar så rent blir till en bild av kärlekens väg och hoppet och tro att ingenting är försent att hjärta ska få ro Där du andas där du älskar där vill jag leva min stund på jorden Där vi sjunger ska alla himmelens änglar få lust till samma sång på samma gång i samma sång Där du andas där du älskar där vill jag leva min stund på jorden Där vi sjunger Samma längtan samma drömmar samma månen samma toner som samma röst i samma sång Where you breath Ghosts and games Doubts and coercion Moon goes up It sees what you want It shines in the night And beams are chasing me They hear that I whisper that Where you breath Where you love Where I want to live My moment on Earth Where we sing All heaven's angels will be content With the same song Sound of us That sounds so clear Becomes a image of love's way And hope and faith That nothing is too late That heart will find its rest Where you breath Where you love Where I want to live My moment on Earth Where we sing All heaven's angels will be content With the same song At the same time In the same song Where you breath Where you love Where I want to live My moment on Earth Where we sing The same longing The same dreams The same Moon The same tones Like te same voice In the same song

Marie Fredriksson about singing the lead motive for the new "Arn"-movie

Marie Fredriksson will be singing the lead motiv song for the upcoming "Arn" movie: "Riket vid vägens slut" (the land at the end of the road).
The single "Där du andas" (where you are breathing) was written by no other than Anders Glenmark and Niklas Strömstedt. Now you can listen to "Där du andas" exclusively on!

For songwriter Anders Glenmark the idea for "Där du andas" came after reading the books about Arn.
Arn was banned for 20 years and had to serve as temple knight in the Holy Land. And just as long a time was spent by his Cecilia in a monastery. During all this time they never lost faith or love for one another. This is what the song and the lyrics got inspiration from, Glenmark says in a press release.

And very popular singer Marie Fredriksson - known from Roxette - jumped at the opportunity at once.
I liked it when Anders and Niklas played it for the first time, so it was an easy choise to say yes to recording it. And or course fun to be part of a Swedish monumental movie in this fashion, Fredriksson says in a press release.
World premiere for "Arn - Riket vid vägens slut" will be in Skara August 14, and in the rest of the country on August 22.

Marie sings title song for Swedish movie

Marie Fredriksson will be singing the title song for the upcoming sequel to last year's "Arn" movie. The song, "Där du andas (There You Breathe)," is written by Niklas Strömstedt and Anders Glenmark. Marie was asked to record the song and she says "It was an easy choice to say yes."

"Arn – Tempelriddaren (Arn – The Knight Templar)" is a 2007 epic film based on Jan Guillou's trilogy about the fictional Swedish Knight Templar Arn Magnusson. The film was released in December 2007 and the sequel, "Arn – Riket vid vägens slut (Arn - The Kingdom at Road's End)," will be released August 22 , 2008. While the films are mostly in Swedish and most of the production was made in Sweden, they are a joint production between Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Germany. With a total budget of around $30 million, it's the most expensive production in Scandinavian film history.

This song, as well as several others inspired by Arn, will be released on the album "Alla himlens änglar (All the Angels of Heaven)" on August 27. Anders Glenmark is the producer.

Other singers include Sonja Aldén, Uno Svenningsson, Helena Paparizou, Tommy Körberg and Fred Johansson. Composers include Anders Glenmark, Niklas Strömstedt, Mauro Scocco, Uno Svenningsson, Tomas Andersson Wij, Patrik Isaksson, Bobby Ljunggren and Eva Dahlgren.

Marie Fredriksson was born in a very small village called Össjö as the youngest of five siblings. The children of the family were raised to look out for themselves and each other. When Marie was young, her siblings would take care of her while their parents worked on their farm. In 1962, the family sold the farm and moved to Östra Ljungby. Her mother then got a job at a factory a few miles away from the family home and her father became a postman, delivering mail to the surrounding areas. Since there was no day-care center in the village, he often took Marie with him to work and during these trips he would sing to her to encourage her musical interest.

After the storm, Marie Fredriksson has chased away the disease and feels much better now than before. "I am more grateful now", she says.

Marie Fredriksson turns 50 today and celebrates with her family. She celebrates that she is healthy and she is working on the next CD and new paintings.

-- Congratulations, Marie. How it feels to be 50?
-- It feels good. Especially when it’s such a beautiful day outside. I have a lot to do. I am busy writing songs and drawing.

-- Will you have a huge reception?
-- No, it’s no good to do something big. I may have a big celebration when I reach 60 instead. I will have a quiet day with my family and friends and go away.

-- Do you like to travel?
-- Yes, I really think about a trip. And our children will enjoy it even more.

”Ordet är farväl”

-- You played two new songs in the collection disc which came out in Christmas. ”Ordet är farväl” has text by Peter Eades. How did this work?
-- She is a good lyricist, and it is fun to work with others. It’s been hard work on this song . I think “goodbye’ is such a beautiful word.

-- In the new "A table in the sun" you sing that the dark years are finally over.
-- Yes, it is wonderful. At last it's over. It is absolutely fantastic. It is good that the dark years, somehow, they went so fast.

-- You've got a different attitude towards life?
-- Yes, I am more grateful. It isn’t good to be in such a hurry. I live one day at a time. I love the spring as this time of the year, it is wonderful to just enjoy it. I had to hurry all the time before.

-- It is still must be difficult to put the disease behind you?
-- It is well on the way out. Mostly others are talking about it. I don’t talk about it anymore.

New exhibition in the autumn.
