Work-In Progress ABBA Musical Brings New Karine Hannah Single

A Millenial Version of the Song with Accompanying Music Video Lensed by Christopher Holmes

Young Pal Music Releases "Fridas's Sonnet"
Performed by Canadian Chanteuse Karine Hannah

Karine Hannah’s new single “Frida’s Sonnet,” released by Young Pals Music, is taken from the theatrical production of the rock opera “Swedish Style,” written by Selcen Pamuk and Ayhan Sahin. “Swedish Style” is a two-act musical inspired by the private lives of the members of the super Swedish pop-band ABBA. The full-length musical premiered in Turkey in 1995, with accompanying concerts held in nearly a dozen European venues throughout late 1990s. The musical is now currently being adapted for upcoming major U.S. productions.

"Frida's Sonnet" is the finale song in Act One, as the production's protagonist admits enduring feelings for a lover that has since been left in the past.

The 2011 version with vocals by Canadian chanteuse Hannah was refashioned into a lush dramatic ballad, while maintaining its theatrical core.

The song is a tribute to ABBA’s dark haired singer Frida Lynsgtad.

A new accompanying music video lensed by Christopher Holmes showcases Hannah’s rafter-raising vocals, set in a fantasy sequence where Karine relives Frida’s emotions and dramatic struggle, amid a New York City backdrop and a setting of rich colors. Sahin also makes a cameo in the video.

"Frida’s Sonnet," now propelled from the theatrical stage to the world's online stage, is available both in iTunes and as part of Hannah’s second album “Karine.”

Where The ‘Wild’ Things Are

It was a wild time this week in South Beach, Miami, as singer/songwriter Tinatin, her music producer Ayhan Sahin and videographer/film producer Chris Holmes lensed a music video for Tinatin’s remix of “Wild,” the title track from her recently released EP. Along for the ride were a bevy of hot beach boys the team picked up along the way.

The original video for "Wild," included on the physical release, was filmed in New York’s Lower East Side during the first week of February, where Tinatin filmed some scenes in a sleeveless couture gown two steps from a two-foot-high snow drift.

Obviously, that was not an issue in Miami. And the original music video for "Wild"... after the jump!
