COMING UP: A NEW SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO FROM MARIA MENA´S LATEST ALBUM CAUSE AND EFFECT. MARIA, WHO WAS AWARDED THE EQUIVALENT OF A NORWEGIAN GRAMMY, NAMELY SPELLEMANNNSPRISEN OF THE BEST FEMALE ARTIST OF 2008, IS WELL-KNOWN FOR HER UPFRONT, PERSONAL AND POETIC LYRICS.
Who would have put money on that the tender, emotional and delicate miss Mena´s new single would turn up to be an interpretation of the monster hit I WAS MADE FOR LOVING YOU BABY from the heavy band KISS? The result is heavenly and removes any doubt that interpretation is everything. The song is supported by a sweet music video directed by Magnus Martens and the production company Sheriff TV. Shot on 16 mm, scanned on the Goldeneye II of Hocus Focus, edited by Thomas Løvig and further polished by Haavard Albertsen in grading, the video depicts how Maria Mena´s music moves her listening crowd, making them emotional and loving. So to conclude: Unexpected charm and sweetness from a project including Gene Simmons.
