  1. Don't Cry For Me, California
  2. Ikkje Gråt For Me, California (Dylan Mondegreen)
  3. Don't Cry For Me, California (demo)

'Don’t Cry for Me, California’ is the latest single from the new Red Sleeping Beauty album 'Stockholm'. It begins as a power ballad but morphs into a magnificent club hit, complete with 80s Pet Shop Boys orchestral flourishes. The EP also includes an exclusive demo of the song and a very special version 'Ikkje Gråt For Me, California' by Norwegian popstar Dylan Mondegreen.

'California' is the latest single to be lifted from the current 'Stockholm' long player and appears in three forms. The single itself starts in a sedate, folkish mood before synth pop beats kick in drawing comparisons to The Pet Shop Boys. Norwegian singer/songwriter Dylan Mondegreen then supplies this take on the longing and yearning Ikkje Gråt for Me, California. The final version is a demo recording which is less polished and, with the synths being toned down, gives the track a different feel. Three solid versions of one fine track!   --Records I Like
