Watch: New Theresa Andersson Video


“Birds Fly Away” from acclaimed Hummingbird, Go! album.


By Blurt Staff


At the end of a successful year
for Swedish songstress Theresa
Andersson, she decided to make a video for single, “Birds Fly Away.”  A single from
acclaimed 2008 album Hummingbird,
, the video, directed by Miranda Penn Turin, invites viewers to
the energized streets of her hometown, New
Orleans.  You can check out the “Birds Fly Away” video, now
playing at Blurt TV


BLURT enthused about the album,
writing, in part,


“Even for New Orleans,
which with its myriad musical hybrids is arguably the birthplace of the mashup,
the notion seems improbable: marrying contemporary Swedish indiepop to Crescent City traditionalism. And though Swede expat/N’awlins
resident Theresa Andersson tilts more in the direction of the former than the
latter, there’s an undeniable earthiness and primal power on
Hummingbird, Go! that you won’t find on, say, offerings from
Lykke Li, Peter Moren (of Peter Bjorn and John), Jens Lekman or El Perro Del
Mar (just to name a handful of Swedish musicians – all good, incidentally –
with recent, heavily hyped releases). That she created the album entirely in
her own kitchen and played 99% of the instruments is all the more impressive.”

New Orleans
locals will have one more chance to see Andersson perform live before heading
into the studio to work on her next record.  You can catch her performing
a benefit concert at the New
Orleans Contemporary
Arts Center
on December 9.
