Anna Ternheim set to release new LP in August

Swedish songstress Anna Ternheim will be releasing a new record, her second U.S. album, on August 11. Leaving on a mayday was produced by Bjorn Yttling (of Peter Bjorn & John fame) and has already made quite the impression in Ternheim's home country, earning her Best Female Artist and Album of the Year at the Swedish Grammys. The first single from the album, "What Have I Done," is available for download on iTunes here, or you can check it out on Anna's MySpace page. The song's quirky beats and sinister string arrangements are striking, but the live acoustic version which you can see below is quite excellent as well, so give it a listen.
