What’s all this then? Molly Sandén, Victor Leksell and Joakim Berg have all gotten together to record a cover of the classic song ‘Sverige’. originally performed by Berg’s band Kent.
How come? It’s to raise money to contribute to Radiohjälpen’s efforts in the coronavirus crisis. They’re currently working to help out the elderly, people with underlying illnesses and other particularly vulnerable groups in Sweden.
What does Molly say? “After my tour was cancelled because of corona, David and I, whom I do music with, have isolated ourselves here in Öland as I have type 1 diabetes and thus belong to a risk group. We felt that we had to do something good, with music, and instead of writing a song of our own, there is a song that has almost become a second national song for Sweden. That is the song ‘Sverige’, by Kent. The whole idea of ??doing this is to raise as much money as possible.”
What does Victor say? “In all this chaos, we wanted to do what we can to help. Because we do not want the music to be silenced, but rather be used as a tool type to get us through it all. I’m so proud and at the same time terrified, but I know we will solve it together.”
Written by? Joakim Berg, produced by David Larsson and Elvira Andefjärd.
