New contest!
As many of you already know, Lene.it just entered its tenth year and we want to celebrate this anniversary the best way. For this reason, we are happy to announce the first celebration event, a contest where all the winners will get one of the poster made by koletz for the "Twist the truth" meet and greet in Milan last May, signed by Lene!
It is very easy to take part to the contest. We set up four categories of works. All you have to do is make something for each category you want to apply and send your work to this email address: webmaster@lene.it. Each winner of each category will get a signed poster. If no one enters a category, that poster will be given by a lottery in which all the contest participants will be involved. For the other categories, the winner will be decided by the fans through a voting system of which we will give you the details later on. The winner in one category cannot be the winner of another one, so we invite you (in case you are going to take part to more than one category) to write us your "preference order" of the categories you decide to be in. If someone will end up to win in more than one category, he or she will receive the poster related to the one he or she pointed out as preferred choice.
Works have to remain anonymous. We therefore invite you to not make them public or talk about them on forum or guestbook. Should this rule be broken, the author will be banned by the contest. The contest starts today and the contest deadline is the midnight of Dicember, 1st.
In the end, please find below the categories:

1 song or poetry lyrics: often, there is no difference between the two. There are songs which are poetries and poetries which become songs. Choose the one which fits the best to you. Max lenght: 40 lines.
2 joke on Lene: no vulgar or offensive joke will be taken into consideration.
3 freehand drawing. Computer not admitted (just to email the drawing). Free framework, tecnique and dimensions. Theme: related to Lene.
4 cooking: are you a good chef? Just send us the recipe (with ingredients and how-to-make-it steps) and a picture of your handmade dish, with a Lene CD beside it. The final vote will take into consideration both the ingredients and the aesthetic aspect of the dish.

"Worth it" - Aleksander With feat. Lene Marlin
Already back in the previous months, we reported the news of a collaboration between Lene and former Norwegian-Idol winner Aleksander With in writing a couple of songs and we hinted that probably one of them could be put into his new album. Now, the time seems to be arrived, since, on October 19th, will be released in Norway "Worth it", where Aleksander With duets with Lene. This song is the second single from With's upcoming album "Still awake".
"Worth it" will be digitally released also in Italy on October 16th and on IBS.it you can find the single cover. For a pre-listening check out amazon.fr (even though the clip doesn't contain the part where Lene is singing).
Thanks Andrea for pointing this news out.

Happy Birthday Lene!
It's 29 years since a wonderful little girl was born, a girl who 10 years ago lit up our hearts and is now still more radiant. On her birthday day she wanted to give us as a present a new blog on her myspace with 4 pics of her last trip to Italy, in particular at Fnac in Milan, where she released her new album in Italy.
In all the years we've been near to her, there are very few words of wishes we've not used yet, but we think feelings don't need many words to be shown. Facts count and we do believe that regarding the facts there's always been a strong mutual friendship, as the pics posted by Lene can only to some extent show.
So there's no need to use many words to tell Lene how much we love her and in such a special day we can't but wish her a world of happiness and thousand of these occasions to meet soon again.

Happy Birthday Lene!

Interview to Roberto Casalino on lene.it Myspace!
A few weeks ago, our fan Stephy pointed out on a website an interview to the Italian singer/songwriter Roberto Casalino. Besides being the author of some songs of Italian "X Factor" winner Giusy Ferreri's latest album, he just released his first solo album "L'atmosfera nascosta" ("The hidden atmosphere").
In the interview we got to know that one song of the record - "Mi manchi" ("I miss you") - has something to do with Lene. In fact, the inspiration for writing it came to Roberto while he was listening to Lene's "Another day"!
Quoting his words: "This song was born on a train. I was going to Tuscany to meet some friends of mine. I was listening to "Another day", a very gloomy and intimate album by Lene Marlin, on my Ipod. I was looking outside the window, it was raining and suddenly I got the urge to take the notebook I always bring with me. I turned my Ipod down and I wrote everything that came to my mind about a relationship ended a few months before. I immediately recorded the melody, suggested by words, on my mobile. And "Mi manchi" was born".

Yesterday evening Lene Marlin appeared as one of TV2 programme "Sommertid"'s guests. She was interviewed by programme host Řyvind Fjeldheim; in the chat, she underlined the importance to keep separate her private and professional lives. Then, questions focused on her latest album "Twist the truth": Lene stated she seeked a quality work and it needs to be listened several times to be fully appreciated.

A big thank you to Tef Johs for the English translation of the interview over at lene-marlin.info and to koletz for the performance video
