Background[edit]

The group started working on songs for the new album since the release of their debut album A State of Mind (considering that their second album Välkommen hem from 2009 was a Christmas album. They entered the studio in the beginning of 2010 to start recording their new studio album entitled "Rewind" and released it on December 3, 2010.

The lead single "Save Tonight" original by Eagle-Eye Cherry) was released on May 30, 2010.[1] It debuted on the Swedish charts at 5, but climbed to 3 and stayed there for 11 weeks. Until December 2010 it has been the only single from the album to chart.[2] A music video featuring the band performing and recording the song in the studio followed on July 22, 2010.[3]

The second single "What Is Love?" (original by Haddaway) was released on October 24, 2010.[4] No music video was shot for the single.

The third single "There's a Place for Us" (original by Carrie Underwood) was released only two days after the release of Rewind on December 5, 2010 with a music video following the same day.[5][6] "There's a Place for Us" is the album's thirteenth and final track, as well as the only bonus track for the album. The song is featured as the main theme song in the Swedish version of both the motion picture and soundtrack for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.[7][8]
