Uma das músicas compostas por Jonas Von der Burg para September, mas não lançada, ganhou vida este ano na voz de Daniela, uma cantora pop/dance sueco. E o resultado é uma canção potente, com refrão contagiante e letra que lembra “Until I Die” e “Rest in Peace”. Vale a pena ouvir!
A terceira prévia trazida pelo site Scandipoip é algo que poderia estar em qualquer álbum de September. “Kom Tillbaks”, “Venha de volta para mim”, em português, é uma deliciosa midtempo, com excelente vocal de Petra Marklund. O refrão é um dos mais gostosos do novo álbum, Inferno, até agora.
O novo single de September, agora sob o nome real Petra Marklund, será lançado na Suécia na sexta-feira (14). A música se chama Händerna Mot Himlen, que, em português, significa”Mãos ao céu”.
O site Scandipop fez um review e tranquilizou um pouco os fãs de September, assustados com a mudança na língua e no estilo – agora mais pop/rock do que dance. Segundo o site, “Handerna é cheia de teclados e tem uma batida dance. É uma ótima canção pop, em que Petra usa um vocal um pouco diferente”.
A música estará disponível no Scandipop para ser escutada inteira na segunda-feira.
Review do Scandipop
September is back! Releasing a new single next Friday, and a brand new album in late October.
Except you can actually forget everything you know about September.
Firstly she’s changing genre ever so slightly. She’s leaving behind the dance music and the Jonas von der Burg cuts that made her a worldwide star in the late noughties (and an even bigger local star in recent years) and she’s going for a sound that she’s described as a cross between Coldplay, Florence & The Machine, and Depeche Mode. Plus, her main man that she’s been writing with this time around is Jocke Berg, who is most famous for his work with massive Swedish indie band, Kent.
Secondly, she’s switching languages. The new album will be in her native Swedish as opposed to the English language albums that she’s always released.
And finally – to wrap up both of these quite significant changes, she now won’t be releasing this music under her artist name, September. Instead, the new album and its singles will be released under her real name, Petra Marklund.
We’ll be honest here. We really didn’t like the idea of this at all. We’ve always loved September’s music, right from the very start. So the idea of her turning everything on its head and doing something different, concerned us a little. Disappointed us even. Realistically after four albums, of course she’s going to want to start experimenting with a new sound. And after the runaway success of her stint on Så Mycket Bättre a couple of year back, there’s absolutely no question at all that a more grown up sound would be lapped up in Petra Marklund’s native Sweden. But STILL. What about September? And what about the not inconsiderable number of us who loved what she was doing before?
Well actually, we needn’t have worried. Today we were sent the brand new single, ‘Händerna Mot Himlen’ (Hands To The Sky), and allowed to be given the very first review. And thankfully – we’re quite relieved to be able to say – it’s going to be a positive review.
To compare it to another song almost does ‘Händerna Mot Himlen’ something of a disservice, as it really does sound extremely fresh and not like anything else out there at the moment. But that’s always the easiest way to describe something to someone else who’s not yet able to listen, so yes – we’ll take the easy route and compare it to something you’ll know. It sounds not too distant from Coldplay’s ‘Viva La Vida’. It’s DRENCHED in strings throughout. And aside from a good dance beat, strings are our biggest weakness in pop music production. Although she’s also gone and included a good dance beat anyway, so there’s two thumbs up from us straight away. Even leaving aside the vocals, it doesn’t take too large a stretch of the imagination to realise that ‘Händerna Mot Himlen’ could be a song by the same woman who brought us ‘Resuscitate Me’, ‘Looking For Love’ or even ‘Satellites’. So it was probably pretty foolish of us to think that she would change her sound completely (unless the album proves our concerns right).
The production and also the melody are both joyfully rousing and jolly. And the whole thing was imprinted on our mind instantly, thanks to a dramatic string riff that plays throughout. Plus, she completes a total 360 in terms of this reinvention, by actually singing like we’ve never heard her sing before. It’s a great comeback/reinvention for her. And you have no idea how relieved we are to be saying that, given the initial reservations we had about the whole idea.
The song is gonna earn her a lot of new fans in Sweden. And aside from perhaps some of the more hardcore Clubland compilation crowd, we can’t imagine it losing too many of her fans either. Anyone with an appreciation for great pop should love this. It’s great pop!
‘Händerna Mot Himlen’ (written by Jocke Berg and produced by Daniel Ledinsky and Saska Becker) is released in Sweden on Friday, September 14th. And the brand new album ‘Inferno’ arrives on October 24th.
We’ll be streaming the song, in full, here on scandipop.co.uk on Monday. The same day it’s sent to Swedish radio.
September anunciou há pouco em sua página oficial no Facebook que “Party In My Head” será o próximo single nos Estados Unidos. A data de lançamento não foi revelada, mas deverá ser em breve.
A aposta na música parece arriscada. Na Suécia, o single ainda não emplacou. Lançado há mais de um mês, a melhor posição nos charts foi a 32ª.
Veja a evolução:
Um videoclipe para a canção já foi produzido. Ele estava cotado para ser lançado em agosto, mas foi adiado até setembro. Vai ver assim a música consegue emplacar na Suécia e nos Estados Unidos.
Em tempos de novos sucessos com o álbum “Love CPR”, o blog “September Brasil” vai relembrar a partir deste post as grandes canções da carreira de September, desde o primeiro álbum homônimo, em 2004.
E a primeira canção a ser relembrada nesta seção será “Can’t Love Myself”, do primeiro álbum, “September”.
Com uma marca que vem sendo criada desde o primeiro álbum, Petra e seu time trouxeram em “Can’t Love Myself” o vocal obscuro e a melodia triste característicos do trabalho da cantora, sem deixar de lado o puro eurodance.
A música não se tornou single, nem sequer foi cantada ao vivo em nenhum show. Uma injustiça. Mas ainda há tempo para ser corrigida.
After many tries, we got an exclusive interview with September to our fan site “September Brazil”. We’re very proud, happy and thankful for this conquest. We wanna thank Victoria, Cacthy Tunes and, of course, September, the reason to this site be online.
Hello, Petra. It’s a really big pleasure to be talking to you through this interview. I’m Eduardo Fernandes, creator of the biggest fan site dedicated to you in the world: The September Brazil https://septemberbrasil.wordpress.com/. I’ll make some questions to you. Any answer will be welcome! We’re longing for this for a long time.
So, let’s go!
September Brazil: Hello, September! There are more than 2 years since you got a big world recognition with the singles “Satellites” and “Cry for you”. What’s your relation with these songs nowadays? Did you get tired or they never get old?
September: Hi!! No, they are a part of me and everytime I see that people get happy when I sing them it’s amazing.
September Brazil: “Mikrofonkat” was nothing less than BIG in Sweden this year. The single is already listed as one of the 40 biggest hits in all time in Sweden. Do you think the world got your music early than your homeland? How does it feel to have a whole country looking to you right now?
September: It feels a little strange.. But nice! It’s nice to be able to tour in my own country as well. It’s also nice that my family gets to see what I do a little more.
September Brazil: Petra, you are a beautiful woman, happy and young. It must be hard to deal with all the siege of fans and press… But what do you like to do when you’re not singing on your concerts or in television?
September: I like to meet my friends and family.. But I love my job.. It’s actually what I wanna do all the time even if I’m free to do whatever.
September Brazil: Do you have idols in the music scene? Who? Do you know anything about Brazilian music?
September: I like a lot of artists, but not really any idols anymore like when I was young.. I always liked Kylie and Madonna.
Brazil is really a great country with both music and dance but I don’t know so much about your artists except a friend that I have from brazil named Felipe Neves hehe!
September Brasil: Love Cpr, your new album, is already platinum in Sweden. How was the process of composition? Are there demos and other songs that will be listened one day?
September: The progress was so fun. It took 1 year and I went traveling between Uk, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. It one of my favorite parts of my job, to write.
September Brazil: A little piece of “Breath with me” was presented to the fans before the album was released, but didn’t make the final cut of Love CPR. Despite it be a little piece, it sounded promising and caught the attention of many people. When will we be able to listen to the song in full? We really appreciate it very much!
September: Haha! It’s funny. We did the song only for that clip, and to be honest, I’ve had so much to do so I haven’t had the time to make it ready. But one day it will. It’s a promise! I really like that song…
September Brazil: In the new album, you decided to work with many new talented producers and composers. The two singles, the brilliant “Resuscitate Me” and the party song “Party in my Head“, are from the same guys, Wayne Hector, Lucas Secon, Cutfather and Jones Jeberg. How was the experience of work with then? Do you want to work together again sometime?
September: I think we’ll work again. They are really amazing wrighters.
September Brazil: The great classic team formed by Anoo Bhagavan, Jonas von der Burg and Niklas von der Burg worked again with you in the new album, and have created together with you the already beloved “Walk Alone” and “Something’s going on“, and the funny “Bump and Ride”. Will this team give us more pop gems?
September: That’s my little family, of course were gonna do more:)
September Brazil: What’s your favorite songs from the new album? Why? Is there a special song to you?
September: Music. I was just so nice when we wrote it. It just came in a second. It’s a song explaining how much I love what I do.
September Brazil: When will we see the videos of “Party in My Head” and “Me and My Microphone”. Will the director be the same of “Resuscitate Me”?
September: The videos are soon ready. That’s all I’m gonna say… Exciting!
September Brazil: You have classic songs, that are fan favorites, but didn’t become singles, like Rest in Peace and Leave it all behind. The decision of choose singles seems to be very difficult, isn’t it? Will “Walk Alone”, “My Emergency”, “Something’s going on” or “Heat Rising” have the chance to conquer the world? They are genius.
September: I think all of them are strong songs, to be honest I would love to release all of them as singles.
September Brazil: What do you think about Brazil? Will you come here one day? The sun, the beach, the beautiful people and MAINLY the fans are waiting for this day!
September: I would love to come and play for you! I think it’s one of the most beautiful countries. Hope to get a gig in Brazil very soon!
September Brazil: You know, we are always very anxious to hear new stuffs. Is there any plan of a new album in the next year?
September: I will release the next one when I feel it’s great, I don’t have any special plan more than that…
Now the fan questions…
Luiz: Why do you choose music to work? What’s your influences?
September: I think it’s because of my family, they introduced me when I was very young and I couldn’t stop singing.. As a kid Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson was my big idols.
Luiz, Jonas and Alice: Do you want to make a duet with any artist? Alice says that the swedish Agnes would see a good choice. I have to agree!
September: Yeah! I would love to make a song with somebody.. Maybe Jay-Z! That would be a dream come true:)
Jonas: Many artists want to get the top of the world charts without take care of the quality of their songs. What’s the important of the quality of the songs to you?
September: To not do something because of fame or money, it always about loving what you do. It very obvious when you do songs for the wrong reasons.
Thank You for this interview. We really love your music and support your success!
