NEW MUSIC VIDEO: THIS WEEK ALEJANDRO FUENTES RELEASED A BRAND NEW MUSIC VIDEO AT TV2. IT IS A LONG TIME SINCE WE HAVE HEARD ANYTHING FROM THE POPULAR NORWEGIAN IDOL ARTIST.

A bit older and perhaps wiser, with new management, Fuentes is now singing in his own dialect from Kristiansand about his childhood neighbourhood. With lots of love and a high nostalgic factor, he has written a tribute to family and friends, accompanied by images of children riding bikes, sleepovers in tents and playing Cowboys and Indians.

Directed by Kristoffer Klunk, the man also responsible for Gabrielle’s latest video. Post-production by Lene Cathrine Albertsen and Hocus Focus with editing by Henrik Berge, online and colour grading by Haavard Albertsen.

So now you know… Directed by Simen Ahlsvik, produced by Tangrystan and post-produced by Ole-Arild Svendsen for Hocus Focus. Edited by Henrik Berge, colour grading by Mathias Theissen, online by Bengt Ove Sannes and sound design by Erik Ljunggren.
