Micke & Veronica box office #1 movie right now in Sweden! Two David Myhr co-written songs in the soundtrack.

The romantic comedy MICKE & VERONICA (see trailer here) has now been seen by over 250 000 people and is right now #1 on Biotoppen! (Box office number-one!)

Now the entire soundtrack by my good friend, the highly talented score composer Jimmy Lagnefors, can be found on iTunes and Spotify. It’s filled with great songs like charming ”Lover Lover”, the EDM-influenced ”Family Tree” (feat. Dan Reed) and the Motown-inspired ”The More I love you” just to mention a few.

I am of course very excited to  have co-written the song “Vänta Inte På Mig” together with Jimmy. It plays an important role in the movie and is supposed to sound “like a local Swedish Eurovision Song Contest winner from 1970”. More about “Vänta Inte På Mig” and its accompanying video (featuring myself, Jimmy, and drummer Andreas Dahlbäck in the studio) can be found in my previous blog post.

What’s also very cool is that Jimmy invited me to co-write yet ANOTHER song for the soundtrack! It’s a latino flavored number called Superman! You’ll hear it in the trailer above and it’s sung by Jimmy himself.

 

 

Here’s a picture from the party after the gala premiere just before Christmas where all the movie’s actors were present. In the photo you’ll find Jimmy, my wife Paula, and myself enjoying some red wine to celebrate the premiere.

More about the movie from a pressrelease (in Swedish) from SF (Swedish Filmindustry):

MICKE & VERONICA är en relationskomedi i skärgårdsmiljö av Staffan Lindberg efter filmsuccéerna En gång i Phuket och Sommaren med Göran. Filmen är julens stora svenska biorelease och hade premiär på över 200 biodukar över hela landet. 

I huvudrollen som snickaren Micke ser vi David Hellenius som gör sin första huvudroll på bio. Den andra huvudrollen, som läkaren Veronica, spelas av Izabella Scorupco. I övriga ledande roller syns bland andra Suzanne Reuter och Philip Zandén.

“Vänta inte på mig” – new single from David Myhr – in Swedish!

Posted: November 2nd, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: post | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

There’s not been much news here on my blog since The Day I met Paul McCartney. It’s kind of hard to match I guess. Since then I’ve been slowly adjusting back to normality. But there has more great moments. One of the true highlights was to see Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. live in concert in Hyde Park in his first festival concert in over 28 years. Check out my wife and I helping Jeff out with the background vocals here.

I’ve also made an interview (in Swedish) with Radio 88 where I talk about everything from my religion which is The Beatles, my former hometown Piteå, my favorite hang out Noels, my former band The Merrymakers, my work at Luleå tekniska universitet to the fact that I’ve now released my debut album Soundshine on vinyl as well as how it was meeting a Japanese audience (a couple of years ago) 15 years too late… 

But the BIG NEWS today is – I have a NEW SINGLE out: “VÄNTA INTE PÅ MIG”!!!

The single is released on the world’s best record label Lojinx and is distributed by Border in Sweden. This is my first (and last?) record release in my native language Swedish. “Vänta inte på mig” means “Don’t Wait for Me” in English and “No Me Esperes” in Spanish.

The song is the result of a new songwriting collaborationship that came about when film music composer Jimmy Lagnefors (En gång i Phuket, Sommaren med Göran, Solstorm, Bröllopsfotografen, Mammas Pojkar) invited me to the delicate task of writing a song that “could have been the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest winner forty years ago”. The song plays a crucial part in the coming romantic comedy Micke & Veronica which is the big Swedish cinema release this upcoming Christmas featuring David Hellenius and Isabella Scorupco.

In the movie itself you will not hear me singing though. In the key scene where the song is featured it will be performed live with one of the actors behind the vocal microphone. This means that the single I’m releasing today will be the only official studio version of the song and it will be featured on the film’s soundtrack in the near future.
