A new Orup album on the way!

According to this Aftonbladet article/interview, http://www.aftonbladet.se/nojesbladet/article7593697.ab one of Sweden's greatest ever popstars (IMHO) is releasing his new album later this year. It will be Orup's first solo album since 2005. Since that time of course he's been recording and touring with the legendary Lena Philipsson - 250 live shows, no less. They recorded an album together as a duo, which was OK but I really wanted to love it more than I did. A case of the parts being greater than the whole, I guess.

Anyway I'm eagerly awaiting this new solo album and no doubt I'll be reviewing it on here! I wonder if Lena's got any new music on the way?

You know I'm sorta re-disovered him as a person on Allsång. He seems to be very open artist who work with public just fantastic and seems like public really appreciates it and it's another point why he's beloved in Sweden a lot.

I haven't had the chance to watch the last couple of weeks of Allsång so I still need to catch up this weekend and do a post about it :)

I've loved his music for years, and my favourite album is the disco-themed Elva Hjärtan - I still play that album regularly.

It's clear that the Swedish public will always have a place in their hearts for acts like him who clearly connect with their audience.
