BAO “INTERNATIONAL”!

18 03 2009

baoeos1BAO IN ENGLISH
Helen Sjöholm has said that the “international” album by BAO is progressing well.  She has recorded DU ÄR MIN MAN / YOU ARE MY MAN. Helen said that it was fun to sing in English as she hasn´t done that for a long time. At the same time it felt strange to sing it in English as the Swedish version feels so comfortable to her. Helen also praises Björn´s new lyrics for the song which she felt flowed very well. Tommy Körberg has also recorded FAIT ACCOMPLI in English.  No release date has been set yet for the album, but it’s though that it will be out by the time BAO play in London
