Robyn, Max Martin, Avicii, Seinabo Sey & First Aid Kid Are Getting Their Own Postage Stamps In Sweden
We didn’t really need another reason that underscores the ways in which Sweden is the coolest corner on the planet, but here’s one anyway: Robyn is getting her own postage stamp. And Max Martin. And “Pistols At Dawn” singer Seinabo Sey, First Aid Kit and, yes, even Avicii. Scandinavian postal company PostNord will make the stamps available on January 15, 2015.
“Sweden, with a population of only 9 million, is third in world in pop music exports. PostNord is profiling this achievement by issuing stamps featuring a selection of the Swedish artists and songwriters who are currently spreading Swedish music across the world,” the company says in a press release.
PostNord notes that the illustrations were made by Jenny Mörtsell from original photos taken by Alex Wessley, Andreas Larsson, Kristoffer Berg, Johannes Helje and Mikael Dahl.
