Warm congratulations to Lene Marlin on her 32nd birthday.

There is not much of any news coming from Lene these days. The last sign of life was on June 11th on her facebook wall where she shared a link to VG's story about the new cast for TV2's "Each time we meet" show. As far as we know, the recordings for the new season of this popular TV2 show is now close to being underway.

Marion Ravn has stated that she most of all is looking forward to be interpreting Lene's songs, as Lene was one of her favorites when she was a juvenile. And VG's Stein Østbø comments that he's wildly looking forward to Ole Paus' version of Lene's "Unforgivable Sinner".

Lene's "What Have I Done" recorded in the summer of 2011 has surfaced. Read the full lyrics of this great new song here.

In a very surprising find, Pega over at lene.it has today found an absolutely brilliant gem: A totally new and previously unknown Lene song, "What Have I Done", and what's more: Lene is the one singing the lead voice on the song as well. You may listen to this wonderful new Lene song on the soundcloud website of Ole Henrik Antonsen, one of the co-writers of the song.

In a previous article by VG, published September 5th, 2011, we could read about how Lene had been in the USA working with among others Gary Louris from The Jayhawks, one of the other co-writers of the song. In a few words to describe the song, there's no doubt this is a true Lene song: Both the melody and the lyrics - as you can read below - has the classic seal of Lene Marlin.

The Historic Lene Era 4 section contains Period 8 and Period 9, where the latter period is now just added. The new Period 9 contains articles from the official Norwegian and Swedish press from the period of January 2009 to January 2010.

In this way, these 18 just added articles tell the story about the fate of Lene's fourth album, "Twist The Truth" (released March 30, 2009), and yet another part of Lene's history as a recording artist have safely been stored away in the site's historic section.
