Swedish legend Karin Dreijer of The Knife fame suddenly dropped a new album called “Plunge” under the name of her solo moniker Fever Ray this morning, much to the delight of her numerous worldwide fans.
It was only a few days ago that Dreijer gifted us the music video for the Twin Peaks-y To The Moon And Back, a single on the 11-track LP, without actually telling anyone the song was from the album or that an album was coming. So very Dreijer!
“Plunge” is the second album for Dreijer as Fever Ray since her first self-titled debut in 2009, and while the wait was too long, the album is brilliant, everything we could have hoped for, and we’re swooning with thoughts that it’s the best album of 2017.
Take “Plunge” for a spin and hear for yourself. Welcome back, Fever Ray!
