Erm…what’s this? Basically, Friday from ABBA has today released a brand new single.
WHAT?! She features on ‘1865’ by Dan Daniell. It’s a song to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland. It’s literally a song about a mountain. “The song brings the dramatic race to the summit of the Matterhorn to life with the power of a chorale and its impressive lyricism. It is the perfect soundtrack for an anniversary that will surely attract attention from all over the world. Dan and Frida were supported in the chorus and backing by the Zermatt group Wintershome”.
Crikey. It gets more leftfield – the song was written by Urs Biner, the owner and chef of a restaurant that is based in Zermattm where the Matterhorn mountain is based.
Amazing. What’s the song like? It’s an old fashioned, melodic ballad. Like, VERY old-fashioned. Think of Enya making an album of nursery rhymes. That.
