Now I only wish I never met you

So, this news is rather old, but I just saw the video (it's about the song, though, not the video)--it's Jessica Folcker's new single, "Snowflakes"!



It's not exactly the type of song that screams #1 hit (for style reasons, not because of quality), but I really like it; I think I may love "Desperately" on her MySpace even more, though, and "Spell I'm Under," which you can no longer listen to, is also great. Really, all the songs she's put up have been good. I just love her "About Me," section, too:

"The above tracks are taken from my first English speaking record since 2001. I'm working on it at the moment here at Cosmos Studios in Stockholm and it will be finished within the next few months. Musically I guess I've taken a few steps to the left this time, even though I’m still the same sucker for pop as I've always been. Me: the eternal pop bitch, ha-ha...

"But this time it’s personal...very personal.

"My desire is that people will feel touched by the new vibe on this album. Pretentious? Oh, I really hope not! I'm still the same...still LOVING that eighties pop, which sometimes is a bit saccharine and glossy. But there’s nothing wrong with pop music that wants to be FELT. Good pop should ALWAYS make you feel something…whether it's in your heart, in your hips or between your legs ;-)

"Now I just wanna get out there, play live and get people dancing..."

The album, Skin Close, will be released on an independent label in late May 2007 and is described by her label as "spiked with 80s and electro-pop flavors." It's looking to be a very expensive late spring/summer, at this rate.

Edit: clearly I was a little out of it last night--I meant to give credit to this lovely forum for alerting me to the existence of her MySpace.

Great song! I wasn't aware she had new stuff out...

I don't think it's really a major release--I could be totally wrong (I hope I am), but I'd be surprised to see it do much on the charts. It'll be nice to have a new album in English either way, though; Jessica and Dino both had some great songs. I think the single isn't out yet, too--early May, I think I remember reading somewhere, maybe...
