A Swedish music queen and official UN Ambassador.
Anna Bergendahl has been a staple in Swedish music for quite some time now, but now, she is maybe more relevant than ever.
But let's start from the beginning.At 16, she rose to fame in Swedish Idol 2008 and won Melodifestivalen two years later with "This Is My Life".
The song placed no. 1 on the singles chart and her debut album "Yours Sincerely" reached no. 1 on the album chart.
In 2011 Anna started working with one of the world’s most renowned producers Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman), who produced her second album "Something To Believe In", which also got a US release by Decca. Anna also started her medical studies before making a long-awaited comeback in 2018 with her two singles"Vice" and "Broken Melody", where the former became one of the most played songs on Sweden’s biggest radio network P4.
Both songs were also included on the follow-up EP "We Were Never Meant To Be Heroes".
The following year, Anna returned to Melodifestivalen with her entry "Ashes To Ashes" (co-written with Bobby Ljunggren, Thomas G: son and Erik Bernholm), which placed 10th in the final, reached platinum certification, topped the Swedish radio chart, placed no. 1 on Svensktoppen and finished the year as the fourth most played Swedish song on national radio.
During 2019, while continuing her fourth year in medical school, Anna also released the singles "Home" and "Speak Love", before announcing her participation in Melodifestivalen 2020 with the song "Kingdom Come”.
The song made a huge impact on the audience - ending on a third-place - reaching #1 on both the Swedish airplayand iTunes charts and peaking at #5 on the Swedish Spotify chart.
Now, the Swedish pop royalty is back with the new single Thelma & Louise.
The radio-friendly pop song is a mix between guitar-driven pop and country and is about fantasising about not always doing what you should,
because the things people regret aren't the things that they did - it's the things they didn't do. "Thelma & Louise" is written by Anna, together with Jimmy Jansson & Fredrik Sonefors.
