Both major Norwegian newspapers VG and Dagbladet have today published reviews of Lene's "Here We Are", released yesterday to radio stations and for download, giving the song a 4/6 score in their paper editions. The song "Here We Are" was A-listed immediately by NRK P3, giving Lene some well-deserved radio attention.

Straight song, nicely wrapped up.


This is the sound of a Lene Marlin who says that Marit Larsen and Ane Brun would not be fighting for the "sophisticated singer/songwriter" throne all by themselves. A new severity has captured the artist Lene Marlin.

Here there is a far more ambitious sound picture, signed Even "Magnet" Johansen and Børge Fjordheim. And suddenly her, at the outset, easy but very effective pop structures appear with a new depth and with a totally different framework than before.


The song itself is not Lene Marlin's most catchy, and she can often be somewhat sad and droning in mid-tempo mode, but it's at the same time wrapped up nicely and well accomplished.

Lene Marlin (28) would very much like to protect her private life. And is the first to admit that it's then quite tactically stupid becoming a cohabiter with another celebrity.


The pop star from Tromsø does not longer hide that she and actor Kåre Conradi is stormingly in love. Her dimples were not to be mistaken when the two of them arrived hand-in-hand for the Spellemann awards.


However, the often media shy Marlin, who earlier was together with Stian Barsnes Simonsen, admits that she could have done it easier for herself, and chosen a somewhat more anonymous cohabiter.
