Mikael Bolyos’ first single out on April 6

Updated Mikael revealed in an interview with TDR/MF.net last year that he was planning to release his first album in April, on his birthday, and it looks like his dream is now about to come true. The first single, “When the Lord is about to come,” will be released on April 6. The album will be released mid May, “I’m so happy I managed to finish my album on time!” Mikael tells Mariefredriksson.net.
The song is a duet with Mats Ronander, whom you might know as ex-guitarist of ABBA and support act to Per Gessle’s Mazarin tour 2003 or playing the harmonica on some of Marie Fredriksson’s albums. Mats is a blues guy and the ex-hubby of Sanne Salomonsen.
More information about the album will come soon.
