Susanna And The Magical Orchestra - Love Will Tear Us Apart

Susanna And The Magical Orchestra is in fact a duo with keyboard player Morten Qvenild and singer Susanna Karolina Wallumrød from Oslo, Norway. With Melody Mountain (new album) they have chosen to do an album of only interpretations, some quite radical, of mostly well-known songs, all personal and moving performances with Morten Qvenild´s naked and to the bone playing an important part in the overall soundscape. Full track list includes Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen), It´s A Long Way To The Top (AC/DC), These Days (Matt Burt) "Condition Of The Heart" (Prince), "Love Will Tear Us Apart" (Joy Division), "Crazy, Crazy Nights" (Kiss), "Don´t Think Twice, It´s All Right" (Bob Dylan), "It´s Raining Today" (Scott Walker), "Enjoy The Silence" (Depeche Mode) and "Fotheringay" (Fairport Convention).
What a beautiful interpretation of this amazing song by Joy Division!
