OSLO, NORWAY – In 2006, former Norwegian Pop Idol contestant Margaret Berger released her second album, Pretty Scary Silver Fairy. A specific sub-set of scandipop nerd went absolutely mad for its effortlessly icy cool delivery and perfectly crafted melodies. And then Margaret Berger disappeared.
Seven years later, Margaret eventually emerged from the wilderness to take her place on the global stage, representing her country at the Eurovision Song Contest with the gobsmackingly brilliant ‘I Feed You My Love’. So So Gay caught up with her ahead of the release of her long-awaited new album New Religion, to discuss pop music, Eurovision and new single ‘Human Race’.
