about

A tragic life story woven into a captivating song: "The Nine Days' Queen" by no:carrier tells the story of Lady Jane Grey who was born into tumultuous, dark times, became the Queen of England for nine days before being dethroned by the real successor of King Edward VI. After legal struggles Lady Jane Grey was beheaded on February 12, 1554.

Musically no:carrier's trademark dark Electro Noire Pop mingles with medieval instruments and a small orchestra to form a captivating blend of electronic sounds, beats and instruments, with Cynthia's great voice above all.

Track Name: The Nine Days' Queen (single mix)
The Nine Days' Queen

Young and bright
Walking in dark times
Through England’s East Midlands

Walking tall
In times of war
You had to marry this man

He wanted you
To be the queen
And reign throughout the land

Lady Jane Grey
Born on a Sunday
Destined to fall pray

She was called the Nine Days' Queen
The called her the Nine Days' Queen

The king had died
Your husband lied
And you had to take the throne

You were only fifteen
And the righteous queen
Came back to hold her own

You verdict was cruel
And the overruled
But your death was just postponed

Lady Jane Grey
Born on a Sunday
Destined to fall pray

She was called the Nine Days' Queen
The called her the Nine Days' Queen

You did not convert
To her religion
The risk of your living was high

The rebellion was broken
The charges outspoken
The way to the scaffold so nigh

Have mercy you said
The tears I’ve shed
You prayed with just a sigh

Lady Jane Grey
Born on a Sunday
Destined to fall pray

She was called the Nine Days' Queen
The called her the Nine Days' Queen
