Sjung

The meaning of «sjung»

Sjung (Swedish: [ˈɧɵŋː], "Sing") is the fourth studio album by the Swedish singer-songwriter Laleh, released on 25 January 2012. Produced by Laleh herself, the album was released on Warner Music Sweden and Lost Army.[3] Sjung is her first long play for four years since the January 2009 album Me and Simon. The album is produced, written, recorded, engineered and performed by Laleh.[4] The release follows her appearance on popular Swedish television show "Så mycket bättre" towards the end of 2011.

The album's lyrical theme centres on new environments and being an outsider, with elements of African drums and synthpop being incorporated into Laleh's sound for the first time. The physical release of the album contains a second disc which features her interpretations from "Så mycket bättre". All of these interpretations were also released as a digital download only extended play preceding the album on 25 December 2011 called Tolkningarna (Interpretations).[5] Critics' opinions of the album were generally favourable although some were divided on the slightly new direction taken and the unevenness of the record. In its first week of release, the album entered the Swedish Albums Chart at number one, becoming her second album to peak at the top, and her first to debut at number one. It was at the top of the charts for four non-consecutive weeks and was certified platinum in March 2012. It also became her first-charting album in Norway, where it debuted at number eight and peaked at number one.

The first single from the album was "Some Die Young", which was released in Sweden on 22 January. The song was performed by Laleh for the first time at the "P3 Guld Awards" on 21 January in Gothenburg. She performed alongside other artists including Veronica Maggio, First Aid Kit and Fibes, Oh Fibes! at the Sveriges Radio P3 event.[6] "Vårens Första Dag" was released as the album's second single on 30 April 2012. "What You Want" was originally due to be released as the album's third single,[7] but was scrapped in favour of "Elephant", which was sent out to radio in early 2013.[8] In July 2013 it was announced that Laleh would release her first international album in Germany during the autumn. The first single from this release will be "Some Die Young".[9]

It was announced on 14 May 2011, that Laleh would be participating in the second season of TV4's popular Swedish reality television show "Så mycket bättre" (So much better).[10] The announcement by the channel also confirmed that fellow Swedish artists, Timbuktu, Eva Dahlgren, Lena Philipsson, E-Type, Tomas Ledin and Mikael Wiehe would be participating. The program involves established artists living together for eight days on the Swedish island of Gotland. Each artist has a day dedicated to them, with the other artists attempting to produce a new interpretation of one of the singer's songs. The show, which is based on a Dutch format,[11] then sees the artists gather together at the end of the day around a dinner table to listen to what has been produced. You also get a glimpse of their time together.[12] The show began filming on 11 June 2011.[13] The show began broadcasting on TV4 across Sweden on 29 October 2011 and, for the first two episodes, worldwide on the channel's online catch-up service, TV4 Play.[14] Her performances on the show were lauded by both critics and the public, with her first five performances topping the Swedish iTunes chart.[15][16] Her rendition of Eva Dahlgren's "Ängeln i rummet" became the highest peaking song on the Swedish Singles Chart released from the show's second season and was also nominated for "Swedish Song of the Year" at the Gaygalan Awards.[17] Following the show, it was commonly noted in the media that she had been given "a second breakthrough".[18]
