“Norwegian Sunset was one of the first songs we worked on for our album in collaboration with composer Bent Fabricius-Bjerre, who has a rare gift for beautiful and moving melodies.
“Norwegian Sunset” is included in the soundtrack of the animated film Bjergkobing Grandprix from 1978, which we grew up with. This fine tune full of innocence and melancholy has a very special place in our hearts”.
