    I'm interested and very curious. Are her songs anywhere close to the collaborations she did with Royksopp? I'm thinking in terms of "Running To The Sea" and the other collaborations she has featured on The Inevitable End (Save Me and so on).

    If her songs are even half as good as the Royksopp tracks I'll definitely be listening to her new album.

    I couldn't possibly be more excited about a new album than this one (except for the new Sleater-Kinney, of course).

    I think Susanne (or whoever is responsible for these decisions) chose her singles well, so listen to "White Foxes", "The Silicone Veil", "The Brothel", "It's All Gone Tomorrow" and you should get an idea of what she was doing for the last two albums.

    Everyone needs to hear her remix of Maps' "A.M.A." where she adds some vocals which certainly take the song to a new level.

    Her recent collaborations (Röyksopp, M83, Kleerup) and the new song seem maybe less... theatrical? So with that, and the title being possibly 10 Love Songs, I'd guess she's going with a slightly more straightforward/restrained sound this time around. (I wouldn't mind being surprised though!)

  8. This will bring me life in the winter.
     
  9. Oh Yes!
    Her last album is still on repeat for me, looking forward to this a lot!
     
  10. Wow! Quite a signifigant change of sound in relation to her last two albums, this reminds me of her first one much more. Is she after 'mainstream' success? Pretty lovely tune in any case, reminds me a bit of what iamamiwhoami
     
  11. This is extremely beautiful.

    Consider me on the bandwagon.

    They're better in my opinion.
     
  13. I'm officially pumped. Especially seeing there's a 10 minutes song.

    Susanne is a proper star in this performance of "Fade Away" at the P3 awards (backed by members of Bow to Each Other, Highasakite, et al.):

    (also: 1:52 = so satisfying)

    Big song.
     
  17. This remains incredible. The melody and vocal harmonizing recall ABBA in the best way possible.
     
  18. Who is producing this album, are Röyksopp involved?
     
  19. I'm not convinced by the performance, the "star quality", the outfit (jail for the designer) and the video. But what a song... What a song !
