Listen to “The Change” in Aftonbladet

STOCKHOLM – The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet will stream snippets off Marie Fredriksson’s new album “The Change” starting today and until Wednesday 27th, when the album is released in Sweden. In addition to the snippets, you will be able to read Marie’s comments about the songs.

  Today Aftonbladet streams “April Snow” and “All About You”. Marie explains that she wrote “April Snow” long ago when two good friends of her broke up. “One gets inspiration from many things in life, not only one’s own life,” she tells Aftonbladet.

  On the other hand, “All about you” is a love song written by Micke for Marie. “Everybody should have a love song dedicated…”

  Tomorrow Aftonbladet will stream two more songs.

  Aftonbladet also published an article about the documentary and the recording of “The Change” yesterday. Marie explained that they started to work with the album a year before she was diagnosed with cancer. They went on with the recording afterwards. “We could play for three days and then stop for three-five months,” says Nicci Notini (drums) to Aftonbladet. The documentary will show these recordings, tough moments, but also funny parts like when Marie and Micke’s kids joke in front of the cameras. “This isn’t a dark documentary but bright and forward-looking,” says the producer of the documentary, Anette Beijer.
