A couple of years back I wrote a song called Try. I was in LA and had been asked to come upp with a song for a movie with the theme “don’t stop, don’t give up”. In the end the movie-producer decided to go along with a song by Coldplay instead, and I went on on writing for other projects and completely forgot about the song until I found the demo again last February. I sent it to my Korean label and they suggested I do it as a duett together with Jeon Jihan, who is the singer of the Korean band Peterpan Complex. When I first heard his voice knew it would be perfect. He really has the most beautiful voice, well suited for this very laid back, melancholic, reflective ballad. I asked him to sing in Korean on the 2:nd verse and you can hear us on iTunes, Spotify, cdbaby.com and many other online streaming sites.

My albums “Katie goes to Tokyo” and “My Naked Heart” were finally released in Japan on August 31st! I’m so excited that pop music lovers in Japan will have the chance to discover my music! What’s special about the Japanese edition is that both albums also include a couple of songs from my latest release “The Acoustic EP”.
There are a lot of videos for the songs, and you can basically find them all on Youtube.
Here are links to two Japanese stores where you can find my albums!
Big thanks to my Japanese label Il Tempo for making this happen!
