Ace of Base are turning heads in the music industry as their comeback effort is already surpassing the expectations of critics and fans alike.
On August 5th, the band released their debut single, “Beautiful Morning,” and the song is making serious noise on European radio – finding a home in the Top 20 on an increasing number of stations.
The song was written by band members Jonas, Jenny and Linn Berggren and is from their new album “DaCapo” (the single “Beautiful Morning” goes on sale September 9th with the album “DaCapo” expected to be released on September 30th). To hear the song you can log on to www.AceOfBase.info.With just a little more than two weeks under its belt, “Beautiful Morning” is already Universal Germany’s fastest chart-climbing single of the year. Besides Germany the song is now charting in Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Austria, Bulgaria, Lebanon, Switzerland, Syria and Denmark.
Today Billboard Radio recognized the initial success of the Ace of Base comeback by featuring “Beautiful Morning” as their “Hits of the World” track on their weekly Billboard countdown. It marked the American radio debut for the uplifting pop smash song which combines influences of the band’s previous hits “The Sign” (which soared to #1 across the world in 1994) and “Life is a Flower” (which earned the distinction of being the #1 song for 1998 for all of Europe in both radio and video airplay).
Billboard Senior Editor Chuck Taylor announced to listeners that, ” We think you’ll love ‘Beautiful Morning’ … a fantastic new single.”
