Lukas Graham, the multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated artist shares his emotive new track ‘Scars’, which is out now on Warner Records. Watch the lyric video below.
“Scars come in many shapes and forms,” he explains. “The physical ones are often the easiest to deal with, while psychological scars can be very hard to cope with because no one can see them so we have to actively share them. We need to talk about these things in order to heal.”
‘Scars’ is the latest release from the Danish artist following last year’s single ‘Lie’. His most recent album, 2018’s ‘3 (The Purple Album)’, featured the track ‘Love Someone’ which has been streamed over 500 million times and has reached platinum or multi-platinum status in twelve countries. Lukas amplified the track’s attention with performances on key Stateside shows including ‘Good Morning America’, ‘American Idol’, ‘The Bachelorette’, ‘Dancing with the Stars’, ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’, ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ and ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’.
Lukas Graham made his global debut with his 2016 self-titled album, which featured the huge global hit ‘7 Years’. The track went on to spend five weeks at #1 on the UK’s Official Singles Chart as it amassed over a billion streams at Spotify and three Grammy nominations. It became the biggest selling single by a debut artist in 2016.
‘7 Years’ catapulted Lukas to sold-out tours all over the world as he earned critical acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, Rolling Stone and Billboard. It also resulted in performances at the Grammy Awards and the MTV Video Music Awards, where he was also nominated for Best New Artist. The song transformed Lukas Forchhammer’s life into a whirlwind — a world away from his beginnings, born on a couch in Christiania, an impoverished quasi-commune located in the centre of Copenhagen.
