The pianist, singer and songwriter Edda Magnason grew up in the countryside of southern Sweden. Her father comes, as her name suggests, from Iceland. Her self-titled debut album was released in 2010 and now her second album “Goods” is released, along with her first single “Handsome”.
“I had all the lyrics and the music ready, but tried to avoid getting stuck in carefully thought out arrangements before coming to the studio. In the best of partnerships it’s not about two people’s isolated wills; it’s about getting into a shared mindset which makes both people think up new ideas. This is how I have experienced working with Christoffer,” says Edda about her collaboration with Christoffer Lundquist with whom she produced the album. “Recording this album has almost been too much fun to talk about – it’s so much easier to discuss things that have gone wrong! The recording situation has been exciting the whole time – all the original keyboards in the studio, for example, have meant that we didn’t need to break off and search through interminable samples to find the best ones. That sort of thing takes energy from recording and stops the flow. “Goods” is more reminiscent in many ways of the recordings I did with my portastudio in my teens, than the last album that I recorded with Caprice on Nybrokajen in Stockholm.”
