Young Pals Music releases tribute to ABBA’s Frida Lynsgtad, performed by Canadian chanteuse Karine Hannah. Accompanying music video lensed by Christopher Holmes
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. The two-act musical inspired by Swedish super-group ABBA and their lives out of the spotlight, premiered in Turkey in 1995, with accompanying concerts held in a dozen European venues throughout the late 1990s. The musical is currently being adapted for the U.S. stage for major productions.
"Frida's Sonnet" is the Act One finale, as the musical's protagonist admits enduring feelings for a lover that has since been left in the past.
The 2011 modern adaptation with vocals by Canadian chanteuse Hannah was refashioned into a lush dramatic ballad, while maintaining its theatrical core.
An accompanying music video lensed by Christopher Holmes showcases Hannah’s rafter-raising vocals, set in a fantasy sequence where the singer relives the character’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. Youtube link for the video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQcuZ7CAPEs
"Frida’s Sonnet," now propelled from the theatrical stage to the world's online stage, is available both in iTunes and amazon.com from Hannah’s second album “Karine.”
