For those having trouble pronouncing "Ø"

So I have the album of the multilingual 'Let It Go' song from Frozen. One of the tracks is the Danish Version 'Lad Det Ske' and at the end of the second chorus, Elsa sings this line:

"Bryder stormen løs"

She holds the 'ø' for a while and you can really hear how this letter is pronounced. I had listened to this version before but I never paid close attention until tonight. I thought it may be of some use to others so, I thought I'd share.

It's like your mouth moves to say the letter "oo" but you say "uh" instead.

It's very, very similar to the "oo" sound in "book," but not identical.
