ο» “Welcome Back Colour”, my 7th studio album, is a compilation, but a somewhat expanded one at that — both musically and thematically.
ο» It was important for me to do a compilation that not only is a revelry in the past, but also points forward.
ο» In many ways these years mark a new chapter in my life and my career and I wanted to have the album reflect that, though this is only the beginning of the “new” — whatever that might be!
ο» Colourful, I’m sure!
ο» “Welcome Back Colour” consists of 27 tracks divided onto two discs:
“Welcome UP” is uptempo. 11 of my most popular songs in their original recordings + 3 new radio-friendly songs, including the title track, which has hit big on the radio.
ο» “Welcome DOWN” is all-acoustic. 13 brand-new recordings of some of my most well-known songs, a few lesser-known and 3 completely new tracks, among them my tribute to “Copenhagen”.
ο» In the beginning of 2010 Tina received two Robert Awards from the Danish Film Academy for her music for the feature film “Oldboys”.
ο» A couple of days later she performed live with Danish pop comet Medina at the Zulu Awards.
ο» In March she went to Bristol to record a track for the soundtrack for Hollywood blockbuster “Clash Of The Titans” together with Massive Attack sound-smith Neil Davidge. The song is called “The Storm That Brought You To Me”.
ο» The same month she went to Iceland to record the song “Welcome Back Colour” with Helgi Jónsson. It came out in Denmark in June as the first single from the album by the same name and has been a big hit on national radio.
ο» At the beginning of June she played four sold out shows at Danish Radio’s Concert Hall with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra.
ο» One of the concerts was aired live.
ο» In June she performed at the Queen’s 70th Birthday at Århus Stadium.
ο» During the summer she played The Green Tour with full band. The shows were far more energetic and outgoing than before and it was clearly a hint at the upcoming colourful release.
ο» In August she played her biggest solo show to date at the opening of Århus Festival week.
ο» “Welcome Back Colour”, Tina’s 7th album, came out in Germany on September 24th and in Denmark on September 27th.
ο» UK and US releases will follow in the beginning of 2011.
ο» The album is mainly a compilation — a mixture of her biggest radio songs, 5 new songs and an extra CD with brand new acoustic recordings of old, new, well known and not so known tracks, as well as duets. 27 tracks in total.
ο» Tina tells that after her return to Denmark for the first time in many years she’s had the time and space to think about where she’s been geographically and musically over the past ten hectic years.
ο» And that’s why it feels like the right time to sum up, enjoy the colours of the first chapter of a successful career and at the same time start a new.
ο» In the fall Tina will play her so far biggest tours in Germany and Denmark which is expected to sell out all the way.
ο» In February the US and UK will follow.
ο» Dico currently resides in Reykjavík with partner and collaborator Helgi Jónsson and their son, born 2012. In August 2013 Dico announced that she is expecting her second child.
