Ola - Overdrive


Ola Svensson's coming back from the... no, not death, Ola's definitely not that unstoppable Natalie, he's more alive than anyone and he never stops to prove it. Today Ola's releasing his second single "Overdrive" from his forthcoming album. Ola has already managed to release 2 albums after his participation in Idol-2005 and 5 (!!!) singles #1, will this one become his 6th #1 single? Herr Svensson has made his first solo-step back in 2006 when he gave his fans right of choice between songs "How We Do It" and Anthony Calleas' cover "Rain", fans chose "Rain" and the single debuted on the 1st place of Swedish chart and kept there 3 weeks, next single "Brothers" became another Top-10 hit (#4) and debut album "Given To Fly" just like debut single started from the 1st place of Swedish albums-chart. Ola decided not to make a big break after first album and together with producer Tony Nilsson they record new #1 single "Natalie" - one of the biggest hits of 2007, followed up by another hit "S.O.S." and new album "Good Enough". In 2008 Ola took participation in Melodifestivalen with another Tony Nilsson's song "Love In Stereo", unfortunately he didn't reach the final but it became huge summer-hit again together with next single "FeelGood", both were included in re-edition of Ola's second album. Year before Ola came back releasing new track "Sky's The Limit", soundtrack "Play Me" for Finno-Swedish musical "Play Me". and being announced as official participant of Melodifestivalen-2010 with the song "Unstoppable" written by Dimitri Stassos, Alexander Kronlund and Hanif Sabzevari. This time Ola has reached the final and although didn't win the contest it has become huge radio-hit and another #1 single. Ola never makes his fans waiting too long and his new hits are on the way.
"Overdrive" is nice summer track with acoustic calm sound and warm feeling, not that powerful disco-schlager-track that you could expect from Ola but all who will buy this single won't be disappointed as it includes few other tracks and all of them sound different and can satisfy any expectation, "All Over The World" that you can check on Poster Girl blog sounds like a big radio hit mixing some brilliant moments of "Release Me" and "If I Had You", another new track "Still Remember" sounds like another well-produced pop-track with a bit of electro-sound that's gonna make all Ola's fans waiting for a new album even more. EP contains also Benji Of Sweden remix of "Unstoppable".

Track 2 certainly is the highlight of the EP but i am looking forward to a fairly diverse album from Ola :) Just glad it's finally coming!

In a moment like this I realize how much I miss properly great Swedish pop-release this year, all hopes are on veterans like Ola :)

Julian said...

Hey. I need to know if the CD single also has 4 tracks! Anyone?? Thanks in advance! :)

Damian said...

I can't be sure Julian. Sites like cdon.se and ginza.se mention "Overdrive" as the only track on physical release.

Julian said...

Thanks for the quick reply Damian. I saw that too on CDon and ginza, though they're not always accurate on the tracklistings. So I was hoping you would own the actual physical single and would be able to tell me! :-/ The songs aren't available on German iTunes. Besides, I *hate* download releases! :-(

News: I decided just to buy the CD single from CDon to see whether or not it also has the bonus tracks. I got it yesterday - and they're NOT on it! :-( Can anyone help? I can't shop from the Swedish iTunes store! :-/
