Lisa Dillan & Asbjørn Lerheim

Change of habit AlbumPurchased

How should one approach Elvis Presley's songs 50 years down the road? Some might say that this is holy ground and we should keep our hands off. Other may go further, demanding pure karaoke versions and condemning anyone straying a millimetre from the original. And some will say it’s risky for an artist's career to try something new with these songs. This has not stopped the duo Lisa Dillan and Asbjørn Lerheim from fearlessly stepping into this gilded mausoleum. With their light and delicate but powerful arrangements for vocals and guitar they have received excellent reviews for their albums and their concerts over the last two years. On their new record "Change of habit", being released in February, they take a far bolder approach in terms of simplicity and openness than they did on the "Love me tender" release from 2012. At that time they had been invited to Nashville by Presley's own musicians and made recordings with several of them in the renowned RCA Studio B. This new recording has been made in Norway, where the foundation is Lerheim's guitar and Dillan's voice. Contributing artists are the piano players Bugge Wesseltoft and Tord Gustavsen, and the trumpet player Eivind Lønning, who add both meditative and playful moods in the very sparsely furnished songs. Elvis’s bass player Norbert Putnam has formed a trio with Dillan and Lerheim, lifting the music with great care and beauty on songs such as "Any day now" and "Mary in the morning". But the record spans in a subtle way a greater musical scale than their first album. You will hear "Fever" in a beautiful ethereal ballad version, accompanied by a wine glass and a guitar string, Bugge Wesseltoft in a bouncy version of "That's all right, Mama" with a prepared piano and fluttering paper, and cool Würlitzer voicing on "Change of Habit". Tord Gustavsen matches the duo with his elegant and dedicated playing  there is no need for major gestures. All in all, we are witness to an innovative, groovy and emotional encounter between some of Norway's foremost musical signatures and Elvis's repertoire.
