After the cd “Spellemann” (2009) – which sold to gold in Norway, about 9000 copies in Sweden and resulted in a tour and TV show with guest fiddler Alexander Rybak – the sequel is finally here.
"My last album, "Spellemann" was a tribute to the musicians who have inspired me and lifted my career further -here Rolf was represented. "Kärleken & Livet" is a continuation of the inspiration and then Rolf was a natural choice "- Bettan
This cd contains new recordings of the three greatest songs they’ve done together. "La det swinge" has become a happy instrumental version with Orsa Spelmän. "Danse mot vår" has become a classic version including Prague Symphony Orchestra and Alexander Rybak as guest soloist. "Duett" has turned into a hymn from Bettan to Jan Werner.
New Norwegian and Sweedish texts
"Rolf’s melodies are a dream for singers. Melodic and beautiful music. Rolf is also a good friend and we have a long string of hits and experiences together from around the world, both with Bobbysocks and as a soloist "- Bettan.
The rest of the songs on "Kärleken & Livet" is a selection of Bettan’s favorites from Løvlands’ treasure chest. The new Swedish and Norwegian texts –by Rolf Løvland, Jostein Fet, Åsa Jinder,Py Bäckman, Britt Wiberg and Hans Olav Mørk – makes this a record with Bettans’ own interpretation and charm.
