Linda Pritchard is back with cover of Chris Isaak's classic hit "Wicked Game" - song performed by many artists but seems like no one dared to make such an amazing dance-version.
Linda's long-awaited debut album was released this spring and has become the best post-Melodifestivalen album of the year in our list (and if nobody will surprise us till close months - best Swedish pop-album 2011) mixing loud pop-rock anthems and massive r'n'b-smelling ballads perfectly showing fantastic range of Linda's voice. So we didn't expect new stuff to come so soon.
"Wicked Game" starts with piano-based intro and tempo growing and turning touching ballad to chorus which explodes with big club-sound in a vein of Swedish House Mafia reminding Loreen's trend a bit though girls definitely gets different points to concentrate on. When Loreen is all about undressing broken feelings Linda is all about giving all the power of her vocal and she makes it 200%.
Below you can also check pretty amazing mix from Rico Bernasconi and due to Linda's twitter video for the song is in plans.
