Thanks to PopJustice!, we now have a smattering of information regarding my favorite indie-electro, bubble-gum pop blonde star from Norway’s second release. You can read the full write-up directly from the site, or savor these deliciously summarized bullet points:
+ The new album will be called Don’t Stop.
+ She has collaborated with Xenomania, Timo, and Richard X over the past year for production.
+ Xenomania-produced “My Love Is Better” is a sure-fire hit single featuring the ladies of Girls Aloud. The song sounds like the Aloud’s “Long Hot Summer” and “You Freak Me Out.”
+ “Sweet,” another Xenomania creation, is another big one.
+ The one I’ve been dying to hear, merely for its name (“Songs Remind Me Of You”) will be finally unveiled.
+ There’s a song called “Loco” which channels some Blondie and features some silly lyrics.
+ The album also features a fair share of slower, experimental tracks.
+ “When The Night” is Annie’s first power ballad.
+ “Marie Cherie” proves that Annie’s got some troubled thoughts.
+ “Take U Home” is a “gothic n’ ghostly electro-ballad.” Sounds like the theme song to my life, am I right?
+ “Misery” is another track off the album that is amazing.
+ And finally, a tracklisting (tentative):
4. My Love Is Better
5. Marie Cherie
6. Take U Home
7. When The Night
8. What Do You Want (Breakfast Song)
9. Bad Times
10. Heaven & Hell
11. Perfectly Honest
12. Songs Remind Me Of You
13. Misery (Duet w/ Frederick from Datarock)
+ Annie doesn’t know how to count, as evidenced in her 10-12 track skip on the PJ page. Stop fucking with my mind, woman.
In retrospect, I really could have linked that article and saved myself the fairly redundant posting of information. I forgive myself.
