The collaboration between Steffen Brandt and Tina Dickow is probably best known for the cover of the Leonard Cohen song Hallelujah featured on the cd "På Danske Læber - 16 Leonard Cohen-sange i danske fortolkninger".
Steffen Brandt, as singer and songwriter for the danish popgroup tv-2 since the band's conception in the early 80s, needs no introduction. Tina Dickow was, at the time, a younger acquaintance known for the album Notes for which she won a Steppeulv and a Danish Music Award for in 2004. In 2006 she won another Danish Music Award for best female vocalist of the year.
The album "På Danske Læber - 16 Leonard Cohen-sange i danske fortolkninger" was released in Denmark in july 2004. The project consisted of a number of the finest danish singers and musicians in Denmark who interpreted the classic songs of Leonard Cohen. The songs were translated into danish by Anders Dohn or by the artists themselves. "På Danske Læber" was presented at a concert at Store Vega in Copenhagen on sunday the 26. september. A documentury film about the concert was made and was resently released on DVD. With its varied and diverse gallery of preformers, "På Danske Læber" has become a homage to Leonard Cohen, but also a somewhat Robert Altman-like snapshot of the danish musicscene as it was in 2004.
