Preview of I Blame Coco's "The Constant"

The band of I Blame Coco (that sometimes are seen with the spelling I Blåme Coco) with 20-year-old singer Coco Sumner (Eliot Paulina Sumner) as front figure, were in Sweden two weeks ago performing a great live show at Berns and also released the debut album "The Content" here.

They wanted to release it in Sweden first because it was here it all started. Together with great Swedish producer Klas Åhlund (Teddybears) Coco founded her electro sound in Stockholm. Klas has for example written and produced for our "Swedish Queen of Pop" Robyn with great success. And now it's time for the next success, I Blame Coco!

Coco is the daughter of kind-of-famous Sting. She is living in England, love Sweden but was born in Italy. And her career is about to burst worldwide. With the first single "Caesar" together with mentioned Robyn it all started out with rocket pace. Then with remixes of Miike Snow and Diplo the snowball was on the roll (find the Diplo remix in this older post)

But now over to the debut album "The Constant", which is a fine release. Love Coco's smoky and raspy voice together with the energetic sound. A mix of electro, pop and 80s rock. It's a record to like every day of the week. As said earlier, released in Sweden two weeks ago, and then it's been released in a couple of other countries in Scandinavia and Europe. But the homeland of Coco have to wait until November 8 to get their hands of the release. Pre-order your copy here. And for the people of England there will some extra fun, because of the UK tour, buy your tickets for the shows here.

Here are some of the greatest tracks from the album, but don't forget to buy the whole release, because every track is good!
