Questions sent.

- In my opinion "The Perfect Cure" is one the greatest albums i ever heard! But why when you were preparing Lorraine's second album Pop Noir you told that this is Lorraine's debut album. But why? I understand that your sound is changed, but this songs with no doubt awesome and very interesting. I have handful songs which i love as much as "Sold Out" or "Twenty Years Under Water"... So tell us please about this album! (Sergey (jaqk vade), Ukraine)

- I wanna ask you about the lyrics. I noticed that you never put the lyrics in CD's booklets (why?) or special section on the official site. You also often change the lyrics to some songs, so it's hard for people who learning English to understand what about the song. Will we ever see lyrics for new songs? I even don't hope to read words of second part of "The Perfect Cure" (i found only first five) and some Pop Noir words :-P (Sergey (jaqk vade), Ukraine)

- Your video for song "Transatlantic Flight" is very mysterious (also song itself - why it's wasn't added to the Pop Noir?) - you filmed this but not officially released? I know some people who watched this but i can only dream about this.. Is there a chance to see it someday? If it's so cool so "I Feel It" video i've lost a half of life! (Sergey (jaqk vade), Ukraine)

- Why Pop Noir was released only in Japan? What abot the rest of the world? How about concerts in Russia? ;-) We're waiting you! (Julia, Ukraine)

- What about new official site? Will we see it soon? (John, UK)

- We sincerely believe that your music with proper promotion can give you a huge audience for a short time! But instead of this there's a bit of people who knows you...
You consciously abide in such a relationship with the music industry? Would you like to be someone like A-ha, or Placebo? (Roman, Russia)

- Concerning Tell It All. Both versions are great, but why did you do the second one after releasing Pop Noir? (eCo0, Spain)

- And this one is almost a personal request, any chance for new concerts soon? (eCo0, Spain)

- Tell us please about song "K-19"! What is about this song? This word 'K-19' also was in "The Perfect Cure" booklet. Is it about catastrophe on nuclear submarine? (Julia, Ukraine)

- Would you like to sing in a duo with some band or musician? Or you don't want to combine own experiences in oeuvre with others?.. (Julia, Ukraine)

- Tell us please about your creative and musical plans on future. What are you wish to achieve and for what aspire? And what are you planning on the near future - maybe it's new album and tour? You've started uploading new songs on MySpace (Home, Falling Down, Gasoline and the new version of Tell It All), are you just testing them (like it was Beautiful Thing, Tell me where you wanna go, Transatlantic, Touch Me and others) or are they the starters for a new album? (eCo0, Spain) (Julia, Ukraine)

- Are there any songs that you wrote in special circumstances? And it's also interesting what inspires you to write songs. (Tanya, Russia)

- How come Pop Noir is not longer available on iTunes? (eCo0, Spain)

- Do you like to live in Norway and do you accept this country as a native or maybe you want to live somewhere else? (Mary, UK)

YEAHS!!! We just got the answers from guys! smile Can't belive it's true happy
so you can read it below.

- In my opinion "The Perfect Cure" is one the greatest albums i ever heard! But why when you were preparing Lorraine's second album Pop Noir you told that this is Lorraine's debut album. But why? I understand that your sound is changed, but this songs with no doubt awesome and very interesting. I have handful songs which i love as much as "Sold Out" or "Twenty Years Under Water"... So tell us please about this album! (Sergey (jaqk vade), Ukraine)

We also really like The Perfect Cure, and it was a very enjoyable album to make! However, when we started working on pop noir we were given much more attention, and since most people hadn’t heard of us before, the international media saw it as our debut album.

- I wanna ask you about the lyrics. I noticed that you never put the lyrics in CD's booklets (why?) or special section on the official site. You also often change the lyrics to some songs, so it's hard for people who learning English to understand what about the song. Will we ever see lyrics for new songs? I even don't hope to read words of second part of "The Perfect Cure" (i found only first five) and some Pop Noir words :-P (Sergey (jaqk vade), Ukraine)

It was not a deliberate decision for us not to put the lyrics in the album sleeve,
However they were printed in an additional booklet in both of the Japanese album editions (The Perfect Cure and Pop Noir)

- Your video for song "Transatlantic Flight" is very mysterious (also song itself - why it's wasn't added to the Pop Noir?) - you filmed this but not officially released? I know some people who watched this but i can only dream about this.. Is there a chance to see it someday? If it's so cool so "I Feel It" video i've lost a half of life! (Sergey (jaqk vade), Ukraine)

We didn’t feel neither the song nor the video matched the mood we tried to capture on Pop Noir, and therefore decided to leave them out. We’ve seen it on YouTube a few times but it seems to be removed or something. Don’t know who’s got it or where it came from…

- Why Pop Noir was released only in Japan? What about the rest of the world? How about concerts in Russia? ;-) We're waiting you! (Julia, Ukraine)

We are now finishing a brand new album, and we will soon make at least most of Pop Noir available to the rest of the world. And we would LOVE to come to Russia and play concerts! We should make that happen soon!

- What about new official site? Will we see it soon? (John, UK)

At the moment we feel that it’s enough with only myspace and facebook, since that’s where most people are.

- We sincerely believe that your music with proper promotion can give you a huge audience for a short time! But instead of this there's a bit of people who knows you...
You consciously abide in such a relationship with the music industry? Would you like to be someone like A-ha, or Placebo? (Roman, Russia)

We are working with several new labels all over the world for the release of the new album, to reach out to a massive audience and to tour the world.

- Concerning Tell It All. Both versions are great, but why did you do the second one after releasing Pop Noir? (eCo0, Spain)

We would like to have Tell It All on the new album we’re recording now, but felt we had to re-do the song to suit the (new) sound.

- And this one is almost a personal request, any chance for new concerts soon? (eCo0, Spain)

Yes, we are in a process of booking gigs for the summer now, we’re hoping for some shows in Spain, maybe festivals?

- Tell us please about song "K-19"! What is about this song? This word 'K-19' also was in "The Perfect Cure" booklet. Is it about catastrophe on nuclear submarine? (Julia, Ukraine)

K-19 is the name of a club we played in Kassel in Germany, probably back in 2004. We had some days off so we stayed there with our tour-bus outside the club and had a really good time. We wrote this song about that experience.

- Would you like to sing in a duo with some band or musician? Or you don't want to combine own experiences in oeuvre with others?.. (Julia, Ukraine)

It hasn’t happened yet, but who knows, maybe in the future!

- Tell us please about your creative and musical plans on future. What are you wish to achieve and for what aspire? And what are you planning on the near future - maybe it's new album and tour? You've started uploading new songs on MySpace (Home, Falling Down, Gasoline and the new version of Tell It All), are you just testing them (like it was Beautiful Thing, Tell me where you wanna go, Transatlantic, Touch Me and others) or are they the starters for a new album? (eCo0, Spain) (Julia, Ukraine)

Yes, the new songs on Myspace are songs from the next album, which we are making plans for and recording this summer. We will follow it up with a tour.

- Are there any songs that you wrote in special circumstances? And it's also interesting what inspires you to write songs. (Tanya, Russia)

Ole is a sleepwalker, and one night he drank ammonia in his sleep and got seriously injured. The song When I Return To The World is about him lying in the hospital bed and longing for the outside world. Our songs are inspired by the kick we get from playing our music live, and sometimes incidents like that!

- How come Pop Noir is not longer available on iTunes? (eCo0, Spain)

We don’t know, but numerous people have made complaints about this, so we will talk to our label asap and see if we can get it up again!

- Do you like to live in Norway and do you accept this country as a native or maybe you want to live somewhere else? (Mary, UK)

We lived in London for a year and a half, and we don’t have any longterm plans for where we’re gonna live, so we’ll have to wait and see.

Big thanks to band for this interview!
