From the sunny climbs of Spain, DontStopthePop returns to Sweden to celebrate the new single by Agnes Carlsson which premiers on Swedish radio very soon. Agnes, star of the Swedish version of Pop Idol, is set to release yet another album in October which this little summery ditty is taken from.
Originally Kick Back Relax was recorded by a girl band from Britain called Clea who are doing very well in Asia with their Trinity album soaring up the charts in South Korea and Hong Kong. The "original" is one of my favourite Clea songs so its nice to see some other act considers it pretty fab too!
But, back to Agnes! In a few weeks you'll be able to buy her hot new album which is simply titled 2006. As for this song, the lyrics are v. odd, make little sense yet calm the frayed nerves of a hectic week. I loved the Clea version and I love this even more so!
Oh and remember to buy the single when it comes out over at CdOn!!
Words: Pop Idol, Sweden, Clea, Popstars: The Rivals
