Dave Gee: Entertainment Now: Some great Swedish Pop to brighten the Kiwi Winter
Latest News from the world of Entertainment, including the newest TV shows, DVD releases, Pop Music, and Celebrity Gossip

Swedish pop-rocker E-Type is back, with the first single from his forthcoming new album Europtopia (produced by legendary Swedish songwriter/producer Max Martin)...

Meanwhile, the title track of Magnus Carlsson's new solo album Live Forever has been around for a few months. It was one of the quality entries that unfairly failed to qualify in Melodifestivalen 2007 as Sweden's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.

(Swedish voters mistakenly picked The Ark, whose song The Worrying Kind finished back in 18th place, relegating Sweden for the 2008 ESC competition).

Magnus used to be in the popular Swedish pop group Alcazar, who are partially reforming (without Carlsson) this month to perform in London alongside BWO as part of a celebration of Swedish music.

Watch out for a few nods to some fellow Scandinavian artists in the video for Live Forever, including a-ha and Abba...
