According to the artist “One of Us” has always been one of Matilda’s personal favorites. “I’ve focused on the simplicity of the song to emphasize the lyrics and melody”, Matilda explains. “Taking the base line heavy, groovy track, and turning it into a folky, guitar-based version, inviting in dramatic, classically inspired strings”. Matilda co-produced with Philadelphia based Andrew Lipke who has arranged strings and orchestra for one of Matilda’s big inspirations, the brilliant singer-songwriter Amos Lee, among others. Andrew didn’t hesitate when Matilda reached out for collaboration on these intimate ABBA recordings. In “One of Us”, they composed the string arrangement together for the perfect balance of classical intensity and contemporary freshness.
