Alexander Rybak returns with a new single in Norwegian*

[The song is in Swedish, but it’s mistakenly referred as Norwegian in the article]

The winner of the Eurovision song contest 2009, Alexander Rybak, is back with a new single, “Resan till dig”, which is performed in Norwegian, the first piece from his third new album «Visa vid vindens ängar», which is available since the last June.

The Norwegian singer Alexander Rybak hasn’t met the anticipated success in France, after his victory at the 54th Eurovision song contest with «Fairytale» in 2009, however he remains a star in his country, where he recently released his 3rd and latest album «Visa vid vindes ängar», introduced with a single sung in Norwegian, «Resan til dig» – thus probably resigning from the effort to export himself after two years and focusing on the market of his homeland.

[However, Alexander has denied himself that the new Scandinavian release means that he’s abandoning his international career]

An admirer of Jason Mraz, Alexander Rybak had made a world tour in 2009 (without passing from our “Hexagon” [=France]), accompanied by the Frikar Dance Company, without, unfortunately, any gig in France. During the last year he passed the trophy to the new unveiled winner of the contest, Lena Meyer-Landrut, who won with an excellent title, «Satellite». This year, in Dusseldörf, this young man was present at the contest from backstage, simply answering to questions by many journalists (see below).

  1. It would be such a pity if Alexander abandoned his international career and focused only on his Scandinavian one. I hope he doesn’t do so though because the rest of the world needs him so as the people forget all about sadness and the results of some problems which were caused by many irresponsible “Country leaders” who claimed to be solving the problem while they were making it worst.
    One other reason why (in my opinion) he shouldn’t do so, is because he’s very talented and just GREAT, as it would be said in my country. I’m not saying other nice words because there are no words to describe him that haven’t been told.
    He’s The Great Alexander of Music…
