Back in 1962, the Danish pianist wrote and recorded the 1962 instrumental hit, Alley Cat, one of the most performed songs of that decade.
Now, hes 81 and making an unlikely comeback with a new song, Jukebox, which is already a hit in Europe, Asia and now is breaking on to the U.S. charts.
Fabric recorded the new song with various Danish musicians including members of Aqua, the group who gave the world Barbie Girl.
Hes pleased with the collaboration even though it was done differently than hes used to do.
As he puts it, Back when we recorded Alley Cat, it was all done live in the studio. Now, young people have different ways of doing things.
Fabric is happy to be part of the pop music fabric but admits he probably wont be touring to promote his new hit.
But thats not because of his age but because the musicians from the album may not be available.
