In May we announced that a-ha songwriter Pål Waaktaar-Savoy and singer Zoë Aphrodite Gnecco (daughter of American musician Jimmy Gnecco from the band Ours) had started a project together. The duo recently signed a worldwide recording deal with the Norwegian record label Drabant Music.

The album ”World Of Trouble” is set to be released February 24th, 2017, while the first single ”Beautiful Burnout” will be released September 30th this year.

For the perfectionists, the collaboration between the two is not really a surprise, in the past Waaktaar also joined the Weathervane project Ours vocalist Jimmy Gnecco, that was in June 2011.

Here a first preview of the track ”Beautiful Burnout”:

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
