She is also featured on the cover of the Reflections album by Apocalyptica, for which she sings the vocals to "Faraway Vol.2". Sundblad works currently with House music artist Rasmus Faber; she sang for him on the single "Everything Is Alright",[4] which was released on 22 November 2008 and on his second single "Always", which was released on 6 April 2009. Sundblad also features on Rasmus Faber's debut album "Where We Belong".[5]
