Lene has begun walking the path to releasing her 4th studio album by offering a brand new song and a new photo fresh from the studio.

In another unexpected move from Lene, she released the brand new song "You Will Cry No More" on her personal
MySpace page earlier this evening. Seemingly, this was first reported by the admin at the forums, at exactly 6:04 PM. You can listen to the song on the MySpace music player, where the new Lene song is the only option.

The first picture of Lene working in the studio for her upcoming album, shown here in reduced format, was also available. The wait for the new Lene album has been shortened now. And together with the
previous message from Hans Petter Haaland at EMI Norway, we have begun the countdown for real, having been reassured that the new album indeed is on its way.

The VG chart all time hit will be decided on January 24, and in regards to this matter VG have received words from Lene on the subject, published just today in the Sunday edition of the newspaper. 

The debut single changed everythingLene in her great year - 1999.

(Published by VG, January 11, 2009)


- Really fine, says Lene Marlin (28) about her very first single having been nominated as the VG-list song of all times.

Marlin gives to VG the impression that just "Unforgivable Sinner" - which first showed up on radio in the fall of 1998 - has an extra room in her heart.

- It has meant a whole lot. It was indeed the first song that got released from "Playing My Game" in Norway. When it got put out for retail sale, it got to be some commotion. I don't remember how much the single sold, but it was anyhow enough to make me incredibly surprised, Marlin writes in an e-mail.

Lene Marlin's duet with the Swiss Lovebugs is being launched in Europe and Asia, where Lene already is a star. However, whether she returns as an artist, she doesn't know.

In the future Lene first and foremost will be a songwriter.

- I think it's hard to foresee the future, and I like better to be working a little in all secrecy, Lene is laughing, cleverly.
