Karin Dreijer Andersson (half of The Knife and opaque soul of Fever Ray) is in the news again, double news actually. After her involvement in “Tomorrow In A Year”, Karin seems to have taken a liking to the stage. Andreas Nilsson, artist and musician you will probably know as the maker of videos for MGMT ( “Flash Delirium”), Peter, Björn & John ( “Nothing To Worry About”), The Knife ( “Silent Shout”) or Fever Ray themselves (the restless video for “If I Had a Heart” is his), is working –alongside Malin Stenberg– on an adaptation for theatre of “Vargtimmen” ( “Hour of the Wolf”, a film by Ingmar Bergman from 1968) which will be premiered in March 2011 at Dramaten, the Royal Dramatic Theatre of Stockholm. According to Pitchfork, Karin Dreijer Andersson will be in charge of the music for the theatrical piece. Let’s hope that, like in the case of “Tomorrow In A Year”, the result of that will be released on record as well.
In the nearer future, “Mercy Street”, a new limited edition 7” including “Dry And Dusty” (already featured on “Fever Ray”) and Karin’s re-interpretation of Peter Gabriel’s “Mercy Street” will be released soon. You can get your copy here.
