Tim Schou first won our hearts as the frontman of Danish rock band A Friend in London. With their cool styling, modern sound, and catchy song ‘New Tomorrow’, they climbed all the way to fifth place at Eurovision 2011 in Dusseldorf. But Tim recently struck out on his own. He’s already won the Danish version of Splash!, hosted a series of hot nights at Euroclub in Copenhagen, and, most recently, dropped the single “Supernova”, which we love.
During Eurovision this year Tim slowed his roll and took the time to speak with wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi. The agenda included how to pronounce his name, the fact he has sung “New Tomorrow” about 1,000 times, and a recent gig in front of 65,000 people in Malta. Tim also sounded off on his new home in Los Angeles, Usher trying to steal his latest single, and his indifference to the occasional questions about his sexual orientation. “The biggest cliche obviously is, ‘So, are you gay or straight?'” he says. “Gay or straight, my music is great.” Tim, who is a bit of a tease, won’t reveal when his album will be out: “I have 30 songs recorded and I have no clue.”
No matter. We’ll be waiting…
