Swedish rockers THE POODLES will release a new single, "One Out Of Ten", on February 16. The powerful ballad was written by singer Jakob Samuel (THE RING, TALISMAN, JEKYLL & HYDE) and Nicolo Fragile and was mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, METALLICA)."One Out Of Ten", is the first single off THE POODLES' third album, "Clash Of The Elements", which is scheduled for release in the spring. The group, which recently parted ways with its record label Lionheart International after a three-year partnership, is once again working with producer Mats Valentin. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Caroline", "Like There's No Tomorrow" and "7 Days & 7 Nights". THE POODLES last year recruited guitarist Henrik Bergqvist (SOUTHFORK, TIAMAT) to replace Pontus Norgren, who left the group to join HAMMERFALL. The new axeman made his live debut with THE POODLES in June 2008 at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden. THE POODLES — Jakob Samuel, Henrik Bergqvist, bassist Pontus Egberg (ex-LION'S SHARE) and drummer Christian Lundqvist — released its latest album, "The Sweet Trade", in September 2007 via AFM Records.
