New album “ 02022020”
to be released by February 2, 2020



02022020 is a palindrome date and the name of the 5th solo album by Danish
bassist extraordinaire Ida Nielsen.
On this album, Ida invites us into a more intimate universe than her previous 4.
You will discover a diverse and more mellow side of Ida´s compositional musicianship, however Ida’s highly recognizable sound still cuts through this stripped down musical setting and makes your head bob (softly).
Ida includes plenty of gems for the bass lovers - smooth bass carried chord
grooves, as well as lots of soulful bass solos.

02022020 is a smooth mix of new material and reinventions of some older
songs featuring young and upcoming Austrian artist "Aljosha" as well as members of her band: “the Funkbots.”
The vibe of her new album can be described as overall smooth, laid back and chilled.

About Ida:

Ida Nielsen got her life turned upside down when music legend Prince discovered her in August 2010. Shortly after she joined his band and started touring with him and “The New Power Generation” as well as the 4 piece power house rock band “3rdeyegirl”
Ida was part of his bands from 2010 until his untimely passing in April 2016.
She describes playing with Prince as “a huge gift and as the most magical musical journey ever, and an on-going learning experience beyond all imagination.”
After the years with Prince, Ida started to focus on her solo career.
Ida has been releasing music on a regular basis and has increased her touring schedules tremendously since 2016. Ida and her band “the Funkbots” are delivering a high energy funk show packed with good vibes, tight grooves and subtle references to her former employer and teacher Prince.

Ida was voted amongst the top 10 bass players in the world ( together with fellow bassists Stanley Clarke & Victor Wooten ) in the annual Music Radar poll 2019.

"Ida Nielsen -Funk Goddess"
Bass player magazine

"The result is Turnitup, a 14-track funk joyride with high-spirited vibes and enough bass magic to make low-enders repeatedly hit rewind, while also doubling as a party-anthem playlist for non-musicians. Her old-school funk meets new-school soul style gives a tip of her cap to her departed mentor, who would, without hesitation, give this disc his stamp of approval."
Jon D'Auria, Bassplayer Magazine

"Ida is a mother plucker"
Prince

"Her name is Ida and she´ll eat a bass"
Prince 

"In all my years in the business, meeting and jamming with all the people I know, I NEVER ask for ANYONE'S autograph. But when she reached in her bag to give me her CD after we jammed together, I had a to ask her "sign it for me"...she and I aren't only fellow musicians, shes a fellow lovely soul and she turned me into a male groupie...lol...So cool, beautiful and down to earth..I LOVE this woman and her CD its so FUNKY..go get it !!!"
