Helen Sjöholm and Tommy Körberg will perform new English versions of their famous songs. Benny Andersson has already conquered the world with ABBA. Now he launches Benny Andersson’s Orchestra internationally.
"The idea of England, we have talked about for 18 months," says Görel Hanser, president of Andersson’s Mono Music. "All the music is there. And much of the disc will have to be instrumental songs. But Tommy and Helen are to do three or four songs in English, so they have to record the songs again."
The international effort kick starts with an outdoor concert in London this summer.
"We have been invited by the Swedish Embassy to play at Hampstead Heath on July 4. In conjunction with the concert, will be the launch of BAO internationally," says Görel Hanser.
There’ll be Du är min man in English?
"Yes, it is not entirely impossible. Benny has not decided which songs it will be."
Benny Andersson’s Orchestra will first be launched in the UK. If a success, he is prepared to continue the launch in other parts of the world.
