Malin Pettersen “Wildhorse Dream” – Listen

Having had some success in Norway in the band Lucky Lips and as a solo artist, Malin Pettersen has upped the stakes by recording her latest album ‘Wildhorse‘ in Nashville, with a pick of  backing musicians.  It brings Malin a fuller sound that she’d captured on 2019’s ‘Alonesome’ mini-album.

Malin Pettersen speaks with enthusiasm about the isnspiration behind the new album “America has inspired this album in a very direct way, through places I’ve been like California, to places I’ve only read about like Arkansas.  I am so fascinated by the way that America is so many things. So many layers… so many worlds in one. It feels like my own mind, and sometimes that many worlds in one can be difficult to co-exist, but that’s one of the things that makes America so marvellous, intriguing, and fascinating – so I try to accept the same with my mind and the ways I want to create music.

Wildhorse Dream‘ is the lead single, and the ‘Wildhorse‘ album will be out on October 16th.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
