The latest rumour doing the rounds is that Frida is to record a new album, with 12 to 14 songs performed with an orchestra, to be produced by former Deep Purple keyboardist Jon Lord.
The source of the story is the the Swiss gossip magazine GlücksPost. Apparently the author of the story met with Frida at an (unnamed, undated) event in London.
A very similar rumour went around just after Jon Lord’s album Beyond The Notes, featuring the Frida-sung ‘The Sun Will Shine Again’, was released in September 2004. Given Frida’s many comments in recent years that she has “closed the doors” on her musical career, and the repetition of the rumour, it doesn’t seem too likely. But we’ve been surprised before, so we’ll wait and see what happens.
