Swedish singer/songwriter Ebba Forsberg never saw a proper U.S. release of her music following 1997's wonderful debut Been There, which is a shame considering the high quality of follow ups True Love (2002) and Ebba Forsberg (2006). Now following the 2009 release of Ta Min Wals (Take This Waltz), an album of Leonard Cohen cover songs (in Swedish), we're happy to report that Ms. Forsberg is back writing new songs in English for a forthcoming album. One of our favorites from True Love is "Daybreak", a song that balances Forsberg's despairing, world-weary vocals -- and heartbreaking lyrics -- with a chiming guitar line and gorgeous orchestration.

Ebba Forsberg - "Daybreak" (from the album True Love)








Such a crazy night to be awake
and watch the sunrise make daybreak
You are everything and more

Pain in my heart
this bottomless sorrow
this is not for real
this cannot be happening
'cause you are all that I adore

What did you expect little darling
from this life of yours
Didn't anybody tell you
life's just full of whores

And when you leave me
darling
cry your tears
'cause I have loved
and lost a love
today

I told you
you see
it will come
just watch me
and I threw my hands and
my feet in the air
and flew like I've never flown

That's when you appeared
from somewhere
I don't know from where
but thought
this is happening
this is truly happening

What did you expect little
darling
from this life of yours
Didn't anybody tell you
life's so full of whores

And when you leave me darling
cry your tears
'cause I have loved
and lost a love
today

There's no start
there's no beginning
there's no start
is no ending
you sighed and I cried and
I cried

I don't feel very heavy now
I don't feel the weight on my
shoulder
you said
then turned your back on me
and your baby

What did you expect little
darling
from this life of yours
Didn't anybody show you
life's so full of whores

And when you leave me darling
cry your tears
'cause I have loved
and lost a love
today

A self-taught musician, Ebba Forsberg brings refreshing depth to haunting musical tales that reflect times of confusion and exploration. Her voice is strong, defiant with a touch of innocence. Collaborating with producer Mats Asplen, whose bodied arrangements complement her classic style, Ebba has created music that boasts a deep soulfulness and a lush, compelling soundscape. "Been There," her 1997 debut, is a melancholy yet uplifting collection of songs composed and sung by Ebba with words written by her sister, Kajsa Ribbing. As a creative team, Ebba expresses herself through writing music and singing, while Kajsa has written lyrics that resonate Ebba's experiences and feelings. The two were raised apart, but grew close after childhood. The artistic strength of this kinship is clearly reflected in the graceful union of melody and lyrics on "Been There." Ebba toured extensively in the late 90's on the Lilith Fair tour as well as with Neil Finn and others. Her live-in-the-studio performance on KCRW is still available in the station's archives online. Her second album, "True Love" (2001), again focused on Ebba's songwriting skills, but added a more "band like" feel to the production. Released only in Europe. Tracks such as "Red," "Addict," "Walk Alone" and "Daybreak" demonstrated a more straight-ahead dynamic to her repertoire honed from her live performances while the heavily-orchestrated ballad "That's How Much I Love You" showed that Ebba still possessed an uncanny ability to write a darkly passionate love song. Ebba has just released her third album, "Ebba Forsberg" scheduled for fall 2006 release in Sweden and later for the rest of the world. More details will be forthcoming as the release is completed. "Kiss of Life"'s title track was featured in the film "Mun Mot Mun" in Sweden, while another new song, "Hey," was included on the soundtrack to "New York Waiting," recently screened at the Tribeca Film Festival. Other new tracks include "Boy You Owe Me," "Deep Denial" and "Words." The myspace audio player will feature these songs in demo and finished versions as well as additional songs in the future. STAY TUNED!
