NEW ALBUM - Movies & Stories Like This - September 30th 2022

Hilde Louise & Anders Aarum in duo format. A new album with just a grand piano and a microphone is being released on September 30th 2022. The album presents nine original songs about intangible love. The inspiration from Piaf, Brel and Weill is expressed through the atmosphere of the songs, which range from bolero, tango and French waltz to jazz ballads. In a concert, the duo would also include amusing, stripped down versions from Hilde Louise's repertoir.

Movies & Stories Like This Reviews

"...this album goes beyond most of what has been sung and played about love in the last 120 years or so." Terje Mosnes/Jazz i Norge

"The multi-talented Hilde Louise Asbjørnsen continues to take giant steps in her own direction. This intimate duo meeting with Anders Aarum is perhaps the most heartfelt thing she has given us." Tor Hammerø/Nettavisen

"Relentless, and oh so beautiful." Dagsavisen

"When life is shattered into a thousand pieces and you're still laughing: the chansons, tangos and ballads of the Norwegian jazz singer Hilde Louise Asbjørnsen, a kind of female Tom Waits, have something of a reckless calmness...Mournful - and yet so beautiful! Especially thanks to the virtuoso Anders Aarum on the piano... They are reminiscent of cabarets in smoky Vienna in the 1920s, where a distinctive melancholic atmosphere spread... Strong!" Concerto
