Ji Nilsson – Encore


We’ve been quite excited for this for a while now. Ji Nilsson only came on our radar when she collaborated with Marlene on Love You Anyway for International Women’s Day – a song which we’ve barely stopped playing and will certainly feature very highly in our end of year list. She’s since followed it with a couple of songs of her own and a collaboration with Min Stora Sorg (“My Greatest Sorrow” for the non Swedish speakers among you). So anyway, Encore. It has Ji’s recognisable sound, with vaguely Mediterranean strings and her by now already trademark melancholy in love lyrics: “When the song is over, so are we… Keep your feet on the dancefloor, encore, I’m not ready for this”. And you will be on the dancefloor for this, no doubt with a few tears in your eyes as you lament the end of your holiday romance. Listen over on Musikguiden i P3.

Updated: Four months on, to coincide with Ji signing to record label Best Fit Records, we now have a video! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, too.
