CHESS and Kristina songs are what she really wanted to record

The paper asks her a number of questions about her musical influences and recording projects:

What about I Let the Music Speak with the men from ABBA in 2006?

I wasn’t thinking so much of the ABBA songs. I was thinking about the songs from the musicals Chess and Kristina Från Duvemåla, about the immigrants who came to the States. It was originally a series of books, [by Vilhelm Moberg] and they wrote the music to this musical. It has not been showed abroad [out of Sweden], but the music is wonderful. I went to that four times and cried floods of tears — and those were the songs I wanted to sing.
