Astrid S releases her debut album ‘Leave It beautiful’ along with new single ‘Airpods’, via Universal Music Norway / EMI. Stream ‘Leave It Beautiful’ here.
The new album is a 10-track coming-of-age record that proves the 23-year old’s talent for taking life lessons, the heart-ache that comes with them, and spinning it all into glitter-strewn yet vulnerable pop music. The record explores the end of relationships from every angle; friendships, romantic relationships and everything in between. With every track co-written by Astrid, the lyrics give an insight into a momentous two years for her, where she has learned to accept life lessons and move forward with gratitude, depicted in the album title ‘Leave It Beautiful’.
Featured on the album are the singles ‘Dance Dance Dance’, ‘Marilyn Monroe’, a track which tackles female stereotypes and was deemed ‘empowering’ by NME, and ‘It’s Ok If You Forget Me’, which have already amassed over 20m streams in the past few months.
For ‘Leave It Beautiful’, Astrid enlisted an array of global talent to collaborate with, including production and songwriting duo Jack & Coke (Charli XCX, Tove Lo, Carly Rae Jepsen, Rita Ora), who she produced the entire record with. Astrid also worked with a number of award-winning songwriters including Fred Ball (Rihanna, Beyonce, Madonna), Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys), Eyelar (Demi Lovato, Little Mix), Ludvig Söderberg (Tove Lo, P!nk), Caroline Ailin (Dua Lipa, Katy Perry) and Tia Scola (Saweetie).
‘Leave It Beautiful’ follows an already successful career to date including the release of five successful EPs, over 2 billion streams, collaborations with the likes of Shawn Mendes and JP Cooper, tours with Years & Years, Zara Larsson and Troye Sivan, and a successful sold-out headline world tour of her own.
Astrid S recently announced new dates for her biggest ever world tour, the ‘Astrid_S: World Tour Part One’, after having to postpone them earlier this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The dates include a show at London’s O2 Academy Islington on 10th November 2021. All new tour dates can be found here: https://astridsofficial.com/#
