Norwegian Cool-Pop poster girl Annie will release her brand new single ‘I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me’ on Island Records in the UK on 7 July 2008. The pop star will also perform several concerts in the UK throughout June and July, including two concerts at the Glastonbury Festival and a performance at the O2 Wireless Festival in London.

02/07/2008 :: The fantastic slice of electro-nuwave-pop excitement ‘I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me’ puts Annie right at the forefront of 2008’s brilliantly varied musical landscape and sounds both immediately listenable and utterly delightful, mainstream and underground all at once. Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Don’t Stop’, the single is a brilliant refresher of everything that was great about the last album (Anniemal, 2004) and a tantalising glimpse at some of what’s great about the new one.

Complementing Anne Lilia Berge Strand’s pick ‘n’ mix, Pitchfork-to-Popjustice, genre hopping pincer movement are an array of handpicked associates: ‘Don’t Stop’ reunites Annie with Timo Kaukolampi and Richard X - collaborators from the first album – and introduces a host of new friends like Xenomania, Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos, Girls Aloud and Datarock.

So this is Annie: a singer songwriter without an acoustic guitar, a chart-friendly singer with her own finger on pop’s throbbing pulse, so comfortable in her independence that she’ll assemble her own role call of collaborators and partners in crime. Prepare to thrill!
