Judging from the cover…

I know they say you should never judge something by the cover but from time to time, a record cover will catch my eye and I just have to get it and hope that the music matches my expectations. So when I saw this stunning cover, I just had to find out more.

Tove Styrke is just 17 and came third in last year’s Swedish Idol. And after checking out her Idol perfomances on Youtube I can honestly say that she is bloody good. I know some critics rubbish TV talent shows (Elton for one) and sometimes that is justified but some true talents do get unearthed.

Tove has released a single called “Million Pieces” and her self-titled debut album (stunning cover above) comes out on 12 November. The single is rather good and can be heard below:
