Today, BAO (Benny Anderssons Orkester) have taken part in the recording of an episode of band member Kalle Moraeus’ Swedish television show, Moraeus med mera.
Performing in front of a live audience under a big-top style tent that forms the temporary TV studio, BAO showcased two songs from their new album Mitt hjärta klappar för dig.
The album was released on 10 June and is available now on CD and digital download. A vinyl version is also going to be released soon.
The two tracks that were performed live, were the recently released single En natt i Köpenhamn (A night in Copenhagen) and a sing-a-long track Timmarna går så fort när man har roligt (Time Flies When You’re Having Fun).
When Benny recorded the album he invited the band’s all-female fan club, ‘Bao Prao’, into the studio to add some backing vocals to a couple of tracks and this evening the ‘Prao’ were again on choir duties.
During breaks in filming Benny and Kalle kept the audience entertained with funny anecdotes and some incidental music.
Earlier in the day, in keeping with the show’s format, Benny was interviewed at locations around Orsa and filmed enjoying lunch with the episode’s other featured artists including: Billy Opel, Malena Ernman and boy band, The Fooo Conspiracy.
The programme will be broadcast on SVT in the Autumn.
