Sea Of Heartbreak, featuring Tommy Nilsson.
My latest album release is a single:
“Sea Of Heartbreak”.
“Sea Of Heartbreak” is included in the album Angel Blue, released in all online stores later this spring. The album contains a mix of famous country songs and the own song “Angel Blue”.
Tommy Nilsson was the obvious choice when country artist Karin Risberg would make a new version of the song “Sea Of Heartbreak”. Already in 1961 it was high on the billboard list. Now, she hopes that the new single and musical video will bring new interest to one of her favorite songs.
Tommy and Karin are good friends for many years but have never had an opportunity to work together.
“It was so fun to join Karin’s new album. We have known each other since the 80’s but have never sung together. It was easy to record the video because we knew each other for so long. I hope it can lift the already so beautiful “Sea Of Heartbreak,” says Tommy Nilsson.
