BlackBook’s Dec/Jan issue is on the brink of hitting newsstands, and as if you didn’t know, it features our 4th annual New Regime, a forecast of prodigies from the worlds of film, food, music, books, art, and fashion who will define their generation. Last year’s New Regime featured up-and-comers who are now tearing their fields apart, like the new Spider-Man Andrew Garfield and British mood-rockers the xx. This year, we may have outdone ourselves. But to keep the suspense going, we won’t reveal the list just yet, except for one: Meet Oh Land, the New Solo Artist.
Oh Land is an eccentric Danish electro-pop singer who used to be a ballerina until a career-ending injury forced her to uncover her musical gifts. More on that later. For now, check out a video diary featuring Oh Land below, and don’t forget to check back here in the coming weeks as our 2011 New Regime is unveiled.
