Yesterday Ditte Marie, Danish national finalist from the past two years, announced that she is leaving her band Le Freak in order to be able to put all her energy into her solo career. The band continues as they got their former leadsinger to come back.
The official CD with all participating songs in this year’s Danish final is still selling well, although it is now fighting with the album from the Danish Junior final. A Friend In London’s Eurovision Song Contest entry New Tomorrow has become a very popular ringtone and Stine Kinck is new on the charts.
As usual the CD with all songs competing in the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix is selling well in Denmark. It is new on the charts where also several of the participants are to be found. Flemming Bamse Jørgensen, who represented Denmark in 1980 and passed away New Year’s night, is giving them all a run for their money though.
The first album from disco band Le freak that came third in the 2011 Dansk Melodi Grand Prix has hit the stores. The album contains new songs as well as cover versions and of course the song 25 Hours A Day, their attempt to reach this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
