Sissel - Odd Album

Sissel is working with fellow Norwegian singer, Odd Nordstoga, on a new album which will come out in Norway in November. According to Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang, the duo have been recording in studios in both Trondheim, Norway and Stockholm, Sweden.

Sissel admits she has long dreamed of working with Odd. In 2004, Odd went from relative obscurity to becoming one of Norway's top selling recording artists, with his first solo album, "Luring." The album, a fusion of pop and Norwegian folk music, has sold more than 160,000 copies in Norway and earned him several Spellemansprisen (Norwegian Grammy) awards.

"I thought our voices would go well together, so when I was offered the chance, I instantly said yes," said Sissel.
