Here at SchlagerTunes HQ as spring has sprung in M E L B and we head into summer there is a real buzz here. So we have been listening almost non-stop to Magnus Carlsson's Pop Extravaganda double CD since it arrived by special delivery down-under.'Pop Galaxy' is a follow up to the last studio album another gem-way back then in 2007 -'Live Forever' Now 'Pop Galaxy' could just turn out to be The Swed-Pop Album of 2011...!
Back in 2007 was the last time Magnus stepped out on the Melodifestivalen stage. The song & album were a huge success in Sweden, although 'Live Forever' was short lived in the fact it missed out on making the Globen Final 07. We are very excited of the prospect of a return to Mf
from King Magnus in 2011. It has been rumoured and this new album proves in no uncertain terms to us, Magnus has the goods. As least 3 tracks from this album would have been ideal for Mf. Tracks like 'Take Me to your heart' or even 'Show Me The Way' is begging for a Melodifest chance.
These new Magnus tunes are wrote by the fantastic PitchLine team of Mathias Kallenberger & Andreas Berlin, these guys do a few Swed Dance Remixes and did the brand new version of Yazoo's 'Only You' by Amy Diamond ( the lead track on her new Greatest Hits CD)
As well as lots of Velvet singles..check out their Fabulous
