Jenny Wilson Teams Up With IAMSOUND Records To Release New Single

Swedish sensation Jenny Wilson is bringing her brand of idiosyncratic pop stateside for the first time ever with her US release "Hardships!" The album is coming out on her own label Gold Medal Recordings on August 24th, but she has teamed up with IAMSOUND Records for a special single release of the track "Like A Fading Rainbow."

On this single Wilson builds modern day spirituals off unique instrumentation including harps, marimbas, synths, and her own multi-tracked vocals on a song that FADER regards as "monumental and completely exemplary of her grandiosity of vision." The b-side of the single features an incredible gospel version of the track "Hardships."

"Hardships!" may be Wilson's first solo foray in to the US scene, yet those with a keen ear may recognize her voice from a guest spot on The Knife's break-out album "Deep Cuts." The Knife also released her 2005 debut solo album "Love and Youth" on their Swedish imprint, Rabid Records. The following year she teamed up with fellow Swedish pop sensation, Robyn, on "The Rakamonie" EP which includes the two doing a dueling-keys live rendition of Saul Williams' "List of Demands."
