The dream scholarship is a unique opportunity for cultural practitioners who dare to dream big

EIDSVOLL: She has been a smash hit with the band KEIINO and established herself as one of the country’s most popular artists. Alexandra Rotan herself has no doubt that the ability to dream big has been important to her now living solely on music. Therefore, the chairman of the jury for the Dream Scholarship 2023 hopes that young artists and cultural practitioners will make the trip to the application portal by Tuesday 15 November at 12.00 and give themselves the chance to become one of 50 scholarship winners in 2023.

Song review: “Alt for Norge” – finally in a new version

Football songs that are made solely to be there, tend to be a bit small, full of bragging and nationalistically charged words.

For someone who for 28 years has had a strained relationship with the football song “Alt for Norge”, first and foremost due to Jørn Lande’s affected and pompous “heavy ballad vocals” full of emotion, it is liberating to hear the new version with Alexandra Rotan, from Keiino, as a vocalist.

Mother of the night

Mother of the night

Mother of the night
Bring back the sinful and shameful in me
Cause I’ve been so waiting patiently
I’m on my knees if you want me to be
So we can rise, we can rise, we can rise

Follow me
Into the night
My darling one
I promise you
No more light
Conversation
In swanky bars
Or hotel rooms

Listen up, put that leather on
Mothers back, let’s get it on

Mother of the night
Bring back the sinful and shameful in me
Cause I’ve been so waiting patiently
I’m on my knees if you want me to be
So we can rise, we can rise, we can rise

I’m mother of the night
Mother of the night
You want me to take you
take you, take you out

I’m Mother of the night
Mother of the night
You wanna let go
It’s all right, It’s all right

You’re so sick
Of being good
Of taking baths
And sleeping well
You can’t take
Another day
Want faded nights
That never end

Listen up
Put that leather on
Mothers back
Lets get it on

Mother of the night
Bring back the sinful and shameful in me
Cause I’ve been so waiting patiently
I’m on my knees if you want me to be
So we can rise, we can rise, we can rise

I’m mother of the night
Mother of the night
You want me to take you
take you, take you out

I’m Mother of the night
Mother of the night
You wanna let go
It’s all right, It’s all right

Oh Mother Midnight
I wanna live, wanna dance, take me out
Show me the moonlight
So we can rise, we can rise, we can rise

New style for Alexandra

“New year – new me!”, Rotan declares on his Instagram story.

– I took a chance and dyed my hair dark. Would go into the new year with a new look, says the artist to VG.

Battle of the Stars finalist Alexandra Rotan: Does not receive KEiiNO salary abroad

The recent silver winner reveals that the band project is running a deficit internationally. Next autumn, she will start a solo career.

This weekend, Alexandra Rotan congratulated her “Battle of the Stars” rival Bjørn Tomren on the victory – apparently just as jubilantly happy, after ten weeks of exposure in prime time on NRK.

Exposure is also a key word for the band she is known as a third of, the Melodi Grand Prix institution KEiiNO.

In a recent application to the Norwegian Cultural Council for the Statens kunstnerstipend, Rotan says that the band does not make money outside the home country’s borders.
