ICELAND – Arnþór Birgisson, who co-wrote the second song Double Trouble in the Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, says it has been a coincidence that Swedish singer Molly Sandén, who sings for Rachel McAdams in the film, was included in the film role. Then he is excited to write an Icelandic Eurovision song.
Arnthor’s old friend had been hired to take care of the music in the film, and he invited Arnthor to join him in Los Angeles.
Molly has also been there, but she is the best friend of little sister Arnþór’s wife. He got her to come and sing over the song, but as a result, she got the part.
“Then the director came and heard her and just said, Listen, she has to sing everything in this movie, she’s absolutely perfect in this.”
Arnthór has, therefore, continued recording with Molly in Stockholm, where she lives.
Arnþór says he plans to try to compose a song to send in the Söngvakeppnin, Iceland’s preliminary for Eurovision 2021.
