Ace Of Base Meet Kiefer Sutherland, Name Fifth Album 'The Golden Ratio'

Any Jack Bauer fans in the house? This pic of Ulf Ekberg and the new Ace Of Base broads with Kiefer Sutherland in Gothenburg, Sweden, was posted today on the band's Facebook. Why? Well—why the hell not, right?

The Base have been shooting their video for new single "All For You" this week (maybe Kiefer will make a cameo?), and Jonas Berggren tweeted on Monday that while they've secured a Canadian deal, they're still working on getting distribution in the States:
"Nice that also Canada is within the deal with Universal. No deal yet with the USA but we have something coming there I think- Jonas"
The band's fifth album will be called The Golden Ratio. Below are the tracks that Jonas confirmed yesterday are candidates to be on it:

1. All 4 you
2. Mr. Replay
3. Let It Play (BlaBlaBla)
4. Golden Ratio
5. One Day
6. California
7. All Night Long
8. Hold Me, Doreen
9. Precious
10. Black Sea
11. Who Am I
12. Vision In Blue
13. Told My Ma
14. Juliet
15. New Year's Day
16. The Piper
17. Paradise

    Many years ago, I was working in the Beverly Center and Sutherland was staggering around the mall completely stoned out of his mind. A couple of the kids I worked with called him over and pretended that they where people he should know. It was funny at first, but after about 30 minutes he still hadn't figured out the kids were goofing on him. It is something I will never forget. Maybe Ace of Base did the same thing.

    17 tracks - like I've always dreamt of saying to Ulf, just ram it all in (we can always playlist the ones we like anyway, none of this bonus tracks and unnoficial leaks 6 months later business).

    When I was 8 and on holiday in Florida, The Sign and Roxette's Look Sharp! and Joyride were the first ever CD albums I ever bought, and I couldn't wait to get home and listen to them.

    That is a lotta tracks on one album. It is good to know these guys at least secured a Canadian deal. That is a good start. Now I know this is going to sound like a shameless plug so please forgive me if I am crossing the line here. "All for you" by Ace of Base is getting 4-5 plays a day on "Radio Creme Brulee" - the Boston internet radio station I manage. Log on to "radiocremebrulee dot com" and listen to the stations' 24/7 broadcast and you WILL hear the song. That being said, has this song made a dent on charts anywhere yet?

    Ulf is still the most fuckable person in that picture :)
