"The track I’d play at my funeral: Suzanne Menzel "I Feel It Starts Again" Hunee, The Guardian, 2015

Frederiksberg Records is proud to announce the first reissue of Suzanne Menzel’s 1981 album “Goodbyes and Beginnings”.

This sought-after rarity presents a blend of ambient, new-age, 60’s inspired folk music. The melancholic lyrics of singer-songwriter Suzanne Menzel are transformed by Danish New-Age pioneer, Klaus Schønning’s, futuristic soundscape. Schønning, not only produced “Goodbyes and Beginnings,” Menzel also credits him as giving her the artistic courage to self-release her first and only album.

“Goodbyes and Beginnings” sits at the cross-section of many genres. Menzel’s voice is as timeless as her heartfelt, somber lyrics. While Schønning’s synthesizer, organ and rhythm computers offer a playful contrast. The beautiful tension between them creates a fresh, unique sound and makes “Goodbyes and Beginnings” hard to categorize even today.


released February 26, 2018

All songs arranged by Klaus Schønning, who also plays: Organ, synthesizer, stringmachine, clavinet, piano, accordion, melodica, slide guitar, auto harp, kalimba, rhythm-computer, percussion.

All vocals sung and arranged by Suzanne Menzel, who also plays: Acoustic Guitar (and piano on "She was a Really beautiful Lady").
