How They Dance in Outer Space

Posted by on mei 20, 2011 in Blog posts, Blogs  

Wow, I’m so exited! I know I seem to start every blog that way, but even so, I am!

While I was in the studio recording my upcoming album, we mailed some of the mixes to the people who wrote the songs.
One of the songwriters is Charlie Mason from New York.
He has written lyrics for famous artists like Miley Cyrus and Eric Saade (he was No. 3 in the Eurovison Song Contest this year). And somehow he’s also written several beautiful lyrics for songs that I have recorded.
Anyway, he liked the mixes so much that he asked me to record a song especially for an album that he was working on with an American choreographer named Melanie LaPatin (she’s worked with some huge stars, like Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan) — “Ballroom Remixed.”
Now it will finally come out on May 24 all over the world, and you’ll get to hear how I did.
The song is really cool and weird — it’s called “How They Dance in Outer Space.”
Totally different from anything on my album.
But that’s part of why I wanted to do it — to do something crazy and different!
Plus, the album is full of great singers from America (like Kaya — I might have a slight crush there),
England (Elouise’s song “The Lovers’ Rumba” is already on Youtube),
Germany (“DSDS” contestant Linda Teodosiu) and a bunch more!
You can hear snippets of the songs here:
That reminds me, I have to get Charlie to put up a snippet of MY song for you to hear!

, The Ballroom mixes will be released in the United states on may 24, I can’t wait to see how it will do.

I’m really exited!!!!!!!!!!!
