BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1999
Originally written for Annie Lennox, “Everytime It Rains” was the fourth single released from Ace of Base’s Re-Release of Flowers in the UK. This song was written by Rick Nowels, Billy Steinberg and Maria Vidal.
After Arista Records demanded the song be recorded, Malin Berggren, looking to take a secondary role in the band, initially refused to record it. Instead,Jenny Berggren originally recorded the song solo for the group. According to Ace Of Base’s Jonas Berggren, once Clive Davis found out that song was recorded by Jenny Berggren he had called Malin Berggren and threatened her. Scared Berggren flew to Norway to record her vocals, and demanded that she only do one take. This one vocal take was used for the released version. “She was sad”, Jonas Berggren wrote to fans about the incident in February, 2011. “And you can hear she didn’t like it”. According to her brother, it is after that incident that Berggren had decided she doesn’t want to be involved in the music industry anymore. A radio edit of the ballad hit radios on April 5, 1999. It was also remixed for American audiences and promotionally released as a lead single for their Greatest Hits record in April 2000. The song was not released commercially in the United States.
