Lovely Swedish Marit Bergman has a new album and single out this week. The Tear Collector is her fourth solo long player and boasts thirteen tracks including new single Bang Bang, which is, as you might expect, rather ace (once you get past the initial disappointment of it not being a cover of the old B.A. Robertson song after all. Or maybe that's just me).
The video for Bang Bang (I keep wanting to type the mighty fall now) also features much Dick-van-Dyke-in-Mary Poppins-esque prancing about on chimney tops from a bunch of sweeps. (No sign of Sooty or Soo though!)
But wait, there's more! If you buy the Limited Special Edition of The Tear Collector you get not 13 but a whopping 22 (count 'em!) tracks, including fantastic duets with the likes of Frida Hyvönen and Titiyo.
Or, if you're a bit strapped for cash in these troublesome times, you can also buy individual tracks at the Marit Bergman webshop.
And, as if that wasn't already too much linkage for one blog post, you can even stream tracks from the album over at Marit's MySpace page. Nice!
