Also, in the US, the Swedish Pop/Rocksters are releasing an EP 3/6/07 "Long Before Rock ‘n’ Roll", before their new album "Ode To Ochrasy" hits the shelves 4/24/07. Here's the tracklisting of the EP:

WM / Real: 1. Long Before Rock’n’Roll
2. Popovic
3. Cinderella
4. Chet Baker
5. Long Before Rock’n’Roll (live)
YouTube: 6. VIDEO: Long Before Rock’n’Roll

I've actually had the new album for a while now, as I picked it up in Europe last year. The CD is ok, nothing too mind-blowingly new... I definitely still love "Hurricane Bar" material best:

Mando Diao - You Can't Steal My Love

Then again, they're great live, so do check them out at a venue near you soon. I'll see ya' at 400 Bar May 8th.

Mando Diao perform in Studio on the Current 5/2/05 (very funny and awkward - Mary Lucia doesn't do so well with the Scandanavians)
