    Default Karin Dreijer Andersson - Fever Ray

    Karin Dreijer Andersson of The Knife will be releasing a solo album/project named Fever Ray in early 2009. I didn't see this mentioned anywhere and as a huge Knife fan, I found it thread-worthy.

    This does not bode well for The Knife playing Coachella 09...

    ..maybe Karin Dreijer Andersson for Coachella 09??!!!

    Yeah, but I'm guessing that this is going to be a de-facto The Knife album so no need for outrage. Olof seems to be the weak link anyway.

    Pitchfork finally caught on...

    Thus far Dreijer's only sharing one tease of a track, "If I Had a Heart (Instrumental Edit)", which hints at something slightly more organic than the frigid, nocturnal sonic landscapes occupied by Dreijer's other current project. Stream that at Fever Ray's website or MySpace right now, and stay tuned for more info.

    I agree (only a month later.) It was a fantastic show. And, that was the show where I first met Vinylmartyr and PsychicFriend, who are both awesome.

    I was away when they came to SF and couldn't change my schedule... killed me.

    This new track is simple, but cool. I can definitely imagine her vocals over it already. I am very excited for this album... fingers crossed that she does some live performances in support of it... even more fingers crossed that she comes to America.

    i saw this in the other thread and thought it needed to be posted here as well. EXCITED!!!!


    The Knife's Karin Preps Fever Ray Album, Single

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, make way for Fever Ray. The Knife's Karin Dreijer Andersson has lifted the shroud of secrecy surrounding her previously mentioned solo project to reveal a debut album due next year and a lead-off single due much sooner.

    Get acquainted with Fever Ray by way of inaugural single "If I Had a Heart". You may recall we discussed the instrumental version of this track last time, and it's still available for streaming at the Fever Ray MySpace. Well the "If I Had a Heart" single proper descends on digital retailers December 16 in the U.S. (via Mute) and in Australia/New Zealand (via etcetc), and the day before in the Scandinavia (via Rabid) and the rest of Europe (via Cooperative Music). So many labels!

    Meanwhile, a video for "If I Had a Heart", helmed by Knife/José González director of note Andreas Nilsson, should surface soon.

    Karin's still keeping mum about the title and tracklist for her debut album as Fever Ray, but that set does have a release date. Or rather, several: March 24 in the U.S., March 23 in Australia/New Zealand, and March 18 in Scandinavia and the rest of Europe, with the same label distribution as above. So many places!

    As if all that weren't exciting enough, here's Karin in the Fever Ray press release: "I hope that my newly found live band will make it to the stages next year. We are rehearsing and building something beautiful and brilliant." Keen!

    The Knife, as you'll recall, are in the throes of writing music and words for an artsy opera loosely inspired by the theories of Charles Darwin. Alas, it is not titled On the Origin of Creepy.

    I'm listening to The Knife all day in celebration.

    Also in the email she sent out it says something the Pitchfork article doesn't...

    ‘If I Had A Heart’ is the first single from Fever Ray: a stirring mantra, a boundless loop, a deep sleep spreading over fields and endless oceans. A dark evocation of hope and a demand for “more, give me more”.

    Yeah, it seems like like it could go a few different directions or be a mixture of her previous styles. Every once an a while like on you "You Take My Breath Away" she gives a hint of what her voice really sounds like... so I wonder if she is going to for a more melodic, natural sound. with Fever Ray.

    This is what I assume Karin's voice sounds like (unless she distorted it back then, which I kinda doubt):

    Honey is Cool - The Lion


    Honey is Cool - Nach heart
