After a couple of false starts, Norwegian trio Lorraine is shooting once again for international success with their excellent new single "When I Return To The World" that will be released in the U.K. on May 19. The song is taken from the group's long-awaiting debut album, tentatively titled "Pop Noir," that is scheduled for release this summer.
Hailing from Bergen, Norway, Lorraine are Ole Gunnar Gundersen (vocals), Anders Winsents (guitar) and Paal Myran Haaland (keyboards, programming). They first hit the European music scene in 2003 with songs like "Perfect Cure" and "Echoes," followed more recent work such as "Italian Girlfriend" and "Transatlantic Flight." After parting way with Columbia Records, they now have a deal with Waterfall Records UK to bring their music to the masses. Their influences include Depeche Mode, a-ha, Pet Shop Boys and New Order.
"When I Return To The World" is an epic slice of '80s inspired pop-rock that is interspersed with the sound of Indian sitars that gives it a timeless and exotic flavor. The single is backed with a brand new track 'Beyond Sky', plus a remix package from current club darlings The Camel Rider and Manhattan Clique.
