It's been almost ten years since Frida Hyvönen put out a record in English, having kept busy closer to home with raising a daughter, collaborating with photographer Elin Berg, and cleaning up at the Grammis with her brilliant 2016 Swedish language album, Kvinnor och barn. In my opinion, Dream of Independence was more than worth the wait. Frida displays all her wit and warmth on this record, and a touch of darkness too. I met up with her in snowy Stockholm to go deep on the themes and artwork for the record. Interview up on The Line of Best Fit now.
