YNGWIE MALMSTEEN To Appear On Swedish Folk CD

Swedish guitar hero YNGWIE MALMSTEEN will reportedly be making a guest appearance on Swedish folk artist AASA JINDER's new album Faith, Hope and Love, due out on September 2nd. The two will also be performing together live on Swedish TV on August 24th. Malmsteen is said to have contributed a "dazzlingly fast" solo to the cut "Goeksbypolska".

"I simply wanted the best, and Yngwie is just that," Aasa told the daily Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

Yngwie himself was reportedly puzzled when Aasa sent him her previous CD, Folk Music In Swedish, which sold 71,000 copies and had received a Swedish Grammy award. " I did not even know who she was," Malmsteen admitted. "But then I listened to the record and just melted! I love folk music and immediately felt I wanted to participate."
