No you are not mistaken, it is indeed Didrik Solli-Tangen underneath all that tweed looking like he has stepped off the set of “Downton Abbey”.

Didrik has released his new song “Six Ribbons” which sees him yet again change his musical direction. His friend and Eurovision winner, Alexander Rybak, has been asking all his fans to listen to Didrik’s new song.

If you are fluent in Norwegian – still on my to do list – then here is Didrik speaking on local radio of his new release, with a clip of the new song.

The song is a cover of the Jon English classic that tells the tale of a young penniless man who wants to buy his love expensive gifts yet all he can afford are “Six Ribbons” for her beautiful hair.

To say that Didrik has gotten all “suited and booted” for the songs artwork would be an understatement. As for the song, there is no official video as of yet – pending Dame Maggie Smith getting a day away from Downton Abbey no doubt – but the song stays true to the original. Sometimes it is best not to mess with a classic. Simple strings and acoustic guitars play out this simple love song. Didrik’s wonderful voice is all you need on this track. You can download the song now

While we are talking all things Didrik, last month he played a concert in Riga alongside 1991 Eurovision winner Carola. Does the man only have Eurovision winners as friends?

Stay tuned for the release of the video for “Six Ribbons” over the coming weeks.
