OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: FRIDA & DAN DANIELL
Former ABBA star, Frida, and Dan Daniell sing for Zermatt
To mark Matterhorn’s anniversary, Frida, the former ABBA singer will be joining up with the Zermatt singer Dan Daniell and some youngsters of Zermatt to record the Matterhorn anthem "1865" on CD. It will be available in store from February 13, 2015.
In 2015, Zermatt will be commemorating the 150 anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn. To mark this occasion, the Zermatt singer Dan Daniell registered a song with Frida from ABBA, who lives in Zermatt. The anthem for the 2015 anniversary was written by the Zermatt native Urs Biner. The owner of the premium restaurant "Chez Heini" is a top chef, author and first and foremost a singer - he has been releasing albums for more than two decades under the name of Dan Daniell.
Biner was able to count on the help of a good friend to sing the official song for the Matterhorn anniversary: It is none other than the ABBA legend Anni-Frid "Frida" Lyngstad. They will be singing the song "1865" as a duet. The song brings the dramatic race to the summit of the Matterhorn to life with the power of a chorale and its impressive lyricism. It is the perfect soundtrack for an anniversary that will surely attract attention from all over the world. Dan and Frida were supported in the chorus and backing by the Zermatt group "Wintershome". The anthem was recorded in Zermatt.
The proceeds from the sale of the single will go to the foundation "Frida and Dan Daniell for children," which Frida set up together with Dan Daniell. The Foundation supports small projects in Switzerland, but also in Europe and around the world.
The world star and creative top chef, the anniversary and the myth, the song and the good cause: Great ingredients for an exceptional project that will not only get a resounding welcome from the global ABBA community.
