Having supported All Saints on their UK tour in 2016 and released a couple of hit singles, I chatted to up-and-coming, Norwegian pop singer, Hanne Leland about her upcoming plans.
We talked about her upcoming single, ‘You Don’t Own Me’ (out 09/06/17), discussed what inspires her music, found out what chocolate bar she’d be and considered her grandmother’s good advice. It’s all here…
Thanks so much to Hanne for taking the time to chat to us and to Bjørnar for setting up this interview.
Hanne Leland‘s releases are all available:

Five (sometimes stylised as five) were a massive boyband back in the late 90s to early 00s, consisting of five members; Scott Robinson, Abs (now Abz Love), Sean Conlon, Jason “J” Brown and Ritchie Neville. Since then, the five-piece band were featured in the first series of ITV’s, The Big Reunion, however only managed to reunite as a quartet (without J)…however, most recently, the band lost another member, Abz Love, so remain as a trio. It has to be said though, they are doing a great job and have been touring the country to sold-out crowds, despite their loss of two members!
The band were originally signed and managed by Simon Cowell and had a huge string of hits and sold-out arena tours.
Keep On Movin’ is possibly one of their most well-known and loved hits, scoring a UK Number 1 when it was released back in 1999. Even now, 16 years on, it remains a timeless pop classic!
I personally LOVE this song…it is a go-to track for me, any time I feel a bit down and want cheering up. It has the quality of making instant happiness; it’s no wonder it was such a massive success!
Who remembers this song? Did you love it back in 1999? Still loving it now? Did you see the band on their recent tour/Big Reunion Tour?
