One of the most glorious rejects of Melodifestivalen-2010 gets its release in UK!
When Alcazar have taken part in last year Melodifestivalen "Headlines" wasn't the only song they could compete with. "Karma Karma" written by Sharon Vaughn and Anders Hansson and produced by Anders with Le Kid's Felix Persson and Märta Grauers has got to the top of entries but hasn't reached the final selection. However track has got its life but not on new Alcazar's album. Brittish pop-duo Same Difference that started its post-The X Factor career with brilliant Jörgen Elofsson and Paul Westerlund "We R One" has got new Swedish help for the second album "The Rest Is History" from Tony Nilsson, Hanne Sørvaag ("The Rest Is History", "Emotion") and amazing team of "Karma Karma" including vocals of Alcazar.
What we've got is real modern disco-pop-gem with modern production, anthemic chorus, "o-o-o"-part (one of 345673 brilliant features of Swedish pop) and tonnes of Alcazar-positive energy.
You should also check epic pop-ballad "The Rest Is History" in a style of last Darin's album with recognizable powerful Tony's production with tough beats and very touching chorus tune. On the other hand you'd never realized that "Emotion" is Tony Nilsson's written but still very nice song. Check samples of the album here and here.
