     You might have noticed it....this site looks a whole lot different now..!
     I'm changing it bit by bit. It is still not finished, but most things are
     online again. I hope to have everything back online in January.
     The site has also moved from Crosswinds to Zon. Zon is a dutch provider.
     They offer 20 MB webspace, but that is just to small for this website, so
     I've split it up. What I mean is that the site is on two accounts at Zon,
     so I've got 40 MB webspace. And they don't have those annoying
     pop-up screens :-)

     I've read recently that Lene's new album should be released in January next
     year. I'm really excited about it. I will hope it will end high in the
     charts in every country around the world. That was the news update sofar...

    16 September 2001

     Finally I worked on this site again :-) It's still quiet around Lene,
     so I don't have any news about her. I've updated the discography-section.
     I recently bought two other versions of the 'Playing My Game' album and
     I've added those to the discography-section.

     That is all the news I got sofar. I'm thinking of designing a new version
     for this site, but thats just a thought. I'am not working on it....yet.
     That's all I can do, because I don't hear anything about Lene. Maybe that
     would mean that she puts all her time in her new album.
     All we can do is wait for that album, but I think that it will be a verry
     verry good album.

     I would like to give you news about Lene, but there is no news to report
     at the moment. Lene is verry bussy recording her new album.
     The album might be released this year or otherwise it will be in stores
     at the beginning of 2002. I'm really looking foward to her new album.
     Hopefully it will give her more publicity. least in the
     Netherlands, because she isn't as famous as in some other countries.

     Lene Marlin has officially moved to Oslo now, although Tromso is still
     where her family lives. She moved into a new apartment in February near
     her old apartment, but needed a place with more room.

     Dagbladet, a norwegian daily paper, is reporting that Lene Marlin earned
     around 44 million kroner (4.8 million US dollars) on her debut album,
     her singles, and other album related income so far.

     Lene is busy writing songs towards her next album, and will be releasing
     one sometime in the future. No exact dates are known yet.

    28 March 2001

     Lene Marlin's new album is at best, expected to release sometime during
     the year. However, the talented young girl has already been promised
     an 15 million advance for her new album by Virgin Records even though
     she has not begun recording yet, but rumors says the material is just
     as good or even better than her debut album.

     (15 million Norwegian kroners is approximately $1,6 million.)

     Unfortunatly Lene didn't won an award at the Britawards yesterday.
     She was nominated for 'Best International Newcomer'.
     It was a though competition, but it's still sad that she didn't win.
     Let's hope the best for next year!!

     I have updated the discography-section with a lot more promotinal
     singles. One of them is verry special. It's a japanese promo for
     Unforgivable Sinner. It has a wonderfull booklet with it. It's my
     favorite single sofar. Besides this there isn't much news around Lene
     at the moment. The Brit Awards are comming closer. Just a few days and
     we will know if Lene will win an award. I'll keep my fingers crossed!!

    22 January 2001

     Unfortunatly Lene did not won an award at the NRJ Music Awards. I was
     trying to get some pictures for you from these awards with Lene on them
     offcourse, but it seemed that Lene wasn't at the awards. She wants to
     stay out of the spotlights untill her next album, so she won't be at the
     Brit Awards eighter. I can understand her position right now.
     She wants to take it easy for a while. She never knew that her first
     album would be such a big succes. That kindda came like a verry big
     suprise. She now knows what it is to be a big star, so she gets more
     time to do nice things now. I hope Lene will release a great second album
     and I wish her lots of success for this album and for the Brit Awards
     on 28 February!

     I've added a new picture on the pictures page in the live section.

     As many UK fans have realized, the "Where I'm Headed" video was not on
     the latest single release in the UK. The intention at Virgin was to
     include this video as part of the release. It was unfortunately not
     included due to some last minute complications, the UK video version will
     not be included in the future.
