Biography

Annie is the stage name of the Norwegian artist Anne Lilia Berge Strand (born 21 November 1977 in Trondheim). She currently resides in Berlin. Her debut album, Anniemal, was released in 2004. The name originally was an idea of her late boyfriend Tore Kroknes, who produced her 1999 single “Greatest Hit”. Annie worked with Timo Kaukolampi (ex-Op:l Bastards), as well as Richard X, who produced and co-write the single “Chewing Gum” and the Geri Halliwell diss “Me Plus One”. The Röyksopp-produced second single “Heartbeat” was voted number 1 on Pitchfork Media’s Top 50 singles of 2004 before the song was even officially released. Chewing Gum” ranked at number 11. On 17 January 2007, Annie signed with Island Records. The first single from her second album Don’t Stop, “I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me”, was released in July 2008. Annie recalls the idea of the song as an attempt to recreate the drums and guitars from Prince’s “Kiss”. As she states in her blog: “Of course it ended being nothing like Prince… but that’s where the inspiration came from”. Although it had a positive critical reception, it peak at number 54 in the UK, making this her lowest charting physical single to date. The music video was directed by Sarah Chatfield.

After numerous delays, Don’t Stop, her second album, was scheduled for release on April 2009. However, on 25 November 2008, Annie announced that she had decided to part ways with Island Records, leaving her second album’s future uncertain. The original version of the album leaked.
