Swedish indie pop band, Red Sleeping Beauty, was formed in the late eighties and released a handful of singles, an EP and an two LPs during the nineties.
Although the band now is a duo consisting of vocalist Niklas Angergård and Mikael Matsson, founding member Kristina Borg is back to contribute her vocals on four tracks on the new album, Kristina. This marks the singer's return to Red Sleeping Beauty for the first time since defeating cancer.
The album's title is an obvious inspiration from- and dedication to the singer who is now looking at the future with optimism and plans to return to the band as a full time member. Kristina is the first Red Sleeping Beauty LP in 19 years and the first single from it, We Are Magic, indicates the beginning of a brand new era for the band.
Vocalist Niklas Angergård says: "The writing and recording process has never been more inspiring and Kristina is about ten times better than anything we’ve done in the past. You’ve only just seen the beginning of Red Sleeping Beauty 2.0."
