New Album Alert – Maria Mena – Viktoria

In Norway, Maria Mena is one of the most popular pop stars in the country with every album release going to the top of the charts. Named after characters from West Side Story (her brother is Tony) Maria was destined to have a life in music. After her parents divorced at age 13, she turned to music as a form of  self soothing and penned the song My Lullaby from her diary. If her name sounds familiar to you, it should - Maria Mena had a worldwide smash hit with her single You’re The Only One. Familiarise yourself with this great song below:

Maria has just released her 5th studio album, Viktoria. An incredibly refined and tasteful album, Viktoria shows how much Maria has grown in the past 10 years since signing with Sony records. The lead single is Habits featuring Danish singer Mads Langer and it’s a very haunting single echoing the Gary Jules Mad World smash hit single. With the piano her instrument of choice, this whole album is filled Maria’s delicate vocals and beautiful ballads. Try this – in a darkened room, light some candles and lose yourself in Maria Mena’s Viktoria. You will understand. Viktoria is out now in iTunes.
