"Twist the truth" and "Here we are" in Norwegian and Italian charts
After a #3 debut in the Norwegian album chart, in its second week Lene's fourth album "Twist the truth" slips down to #17, while the single "Here we are" steps down from #8 to #13 in its fourth week. Anyway, the radio chart results are still pretty good, as "Here we are" stands in the top3 of Hit40 chart.
But good news come from Italy, where we can find the album at #13 of the iTunes Italian chart, also thanks to the ad published in the homepage. The result is quite outstanding, as "Here we are" still hasn't got a proper intense radio airplay and the album will be out only in one month. This shows how important a good promotion strategy is, but most of all how much Lene is still loved by Italian public.

"Here WE are", a fans tribute video
On Sunday 22nd March about fifteen fans gathered to celebrate ten years from the Italian release of the first Lene album, "Playing my game". After a large meal and lots of cheers, we decided to get an idea which lasted for some time in our minds done. As in the last Lene video some fans pictures and part of videos appear... why not make a video entirely made by and with fans? A sort of remake of the video, but also a tribute to Lene and to "Here we are".
So, we started preparing everything, and fixed recordings for that day. The idea was to give to the single fan a couple of parts where Lene plays in the original video, with in between some recordings we have from previous meetings with Lene.
At the beginning everything started kinda funny and in a "light" mood, but, when recordings started, everyone tried to do his/her best and to be as "professional" as he/she could be. The recordings went by faster than expected and everyone played his/her role in an almost perfect way. In the following days, we chose the parts of our videos which fit the best and added some additional frames. We trusted on Andrea (speedfight) for the editing and frames synchronization and he got very quickly the final video ready, adding some funny backstage moments, and you can watch it via this link or hereunder.

We really had an incredibly good time during recordings and we would like to thank everyone who was involved and helped to make this idea become real. We know Lene liked very much the video and we hope it would be the same for all the fans! Enjoy!

Hectic Lene media days
The new Lene Marlin album "Twist the truth" will be out in few days and Nowegian promotion campaign is well under the way. On Tuesday March 24th, Lene was guest at the NRK's program "Landeplage", fully dedicated to Lene's most successful hit, "Unforgivable sinner". Lene was interviewed by Norwegian rapper Ravi, talking about how the song was born and on the three videos of the song. Beside Lene, also some other people (former Virgin manager Per Erik Johansen and "Unforgivable sinner"'s first video director Erik Poppe among them) gave their opinion on the song and why it became so much famous all over the world. In the end, Ravi tried to force Lene to reveal who this "unforgivable sinner" is, but, despite his efforts, he ended the program without knowing.
Yesterday, Lene was on TV2's "Senkveld" where she talked with the two anchormen on her current life between Oslo and London, on the song she wrote for Rihanna and on when she came up on a stage in New York to sing "My love". Then, she performed live "You will cry no more" (click here to watch - thanks to nemar).
Furthermore, today all the main Norwegian dailies reported on Lene's upcoming new album, due out on Monday, the most with a review (average mark 4/6), but on Bladet TromsÝ and Dagbladet Magazine Lene got a few pages with wonderful pictures dealing with her 10 years of musical career.
We also remind you that on Monday, March 30th a web release Lene concert, composed of six songs from "Twist the truth", will be broadcasted on VG online Tv and, starting at 12 am CET, Lene will answer to some of the questions fans sent her. As last info, as pointed out by Domle, on Monday afternoon (from 4pm CET), Lene will perform at TV2 program "Waschera".

Ten years of Lene - Playing my game
Here we go with the third part of the milestones in ten years of Lene Marlin musical career!

This time we celebrate ten years from "Playing my game" Norwegian release, the CD with the blue cover featuring a young Lene picture with her bob hairdo.
Still now, "Playing my game" is her most sold record, an international success with about 2 million copies sold, and one of the most sold album ever in Norway, with a record-selling of 50 thousand copies in just three days; it went straight to the top of VG Lista chart and it got the highest mark possible in the review. After just 2 month it already exceeded 100 thousand copies sold, and in the end it sold more than 160 thousand copies (notice that Norway is populated by roughly 4.5 million inhabitants).
In Italy, the album sold about 300 thousand copies, getting 3 platinums and stayed in the charts for an entire year. In France and in UK it sold respectively about 300 thousand and 250 thousand copies, becoming double gold in UK, even though it was released only in March 2000, when Lene already decided to "disappear" from the limelight and to stop promotion activity.
Beside Europe, the album was also released in Asia, where it got a huge success, especially in Japan and Taiwan, where Lene was awarded several times.
