Swedish World Music Artist Malou Berg Releases Christmas Album "Breathe Out"
Breathe Out -- the latest release and Christmas album from Swedish World Music vocalist Malou Berg will be available on ITunes November 8th on Malou Berg ProSongs AB.
Breathe Out was produced by world class, engineer and producer Lars Nilsson and Malou Berg and partially arranged by Tormod Tvete Vik. Recorded at Nilento Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden, the album features reimagined and remixed songs from Berg's critically acclaimed releases Hoya, Omine, Amaona and Alignment -- which together comprise Berg's "Pleiadian Suite."
"We remixed the music, stripped the songs of their original arrangements, and added a huge string ensemble, harp and light percussion,"
The opening track "Omine" features a glorious choir and delicate orchestration, which lift up Berg's soaring vocals. Originally found on Berg's 2005 release of the same name, the song "Omine" previously won the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest in the "Miscellaneous"
The gentle acoustic guitars, lush string arrangements and angelic harps found on the title track "Breathe Out" give the listener a sense of musical joy, serenity and comfort. While the stripped down version of the title track from Berg's 2004 release Hoya - replaces the didgeridoos, rhythmic percussion and whistles found on the original version with flugelhorn, delicate hand percussion and seasonal bells.
Breathe Out features one song that does not belong to the Pleiadian Suite. The melodic, inspirational track "Nu Faller ljuset in I Mig" ("Beam of Light") is a reworked version of the title song from Berg's first gospel album released in 1984.
