Fever Ray

This is Karin Dreijer Andersson's solo project. A single, "If I Had A Heart" was released on 15th of
December 2008 as a mp3-download. The video for the song, directed by Andreas Nilsson
was made official on January 6th.
A 7" came late January 2009.

The self-titled CD was released on 18th of March 2009 from Rabid Records (catalogue
number Rabid 039). A second video has been released "When I Grow Up". The single was
released digitally in the end of March 2009. A third single, "Triangle Walks" was released
in July. It will be followed up by "Seven" which comes out in October. In October a deluxe
version of "Fever Ray" was released, which will include all music videos
("Stranger Than Kindness") and two bonus songs, together with 12" releases of the
first two singles, and "Seven".

Fever Ray won one of the three Swedish P3 Gold awards she was nominated for; Dance of
