In anticipation of her August 11 release of Leaving on a mayday, Anna Ternheim is sharing her first single, "What Have I Done," with her fans to listen to and share.  Produced by Bjorn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn, and John), this track lures in listeners with its bouncy bassline and keeps their attention with Anna's beautiful vocals and melodies.

Leaving on a mayday Out August 11


Having already won 2009 Swedish Grammys for "Best Female Artist" and "Album of the Year", Leaving on a mayday is definitely an album to look forward to this summer. Produced by Bjorn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn, and John), Ternheim has recorded a set of songs with a new self-confidence and rough authority that she hasn’t displayed in the past. Instead of taking the safe road, she and Yttling approached the music without compromise: the songs are crystal clear, direct in their approach and refuse to hide behind any big arrangements or sonic tricks. The instrumentation is sparse, and the focus on Ternheim is total.

Leaving on a mayday is out August 11 via Verve Forecast.



This fall Anna Ternheim will be touring North America with stops in 15 different cities.  Anna will be the special guest on the co-headlining Loney Dear / Asobi Seksu tour.  Check out the tour dates below and don't miss your chance to see the artist that The New Yorker calls
