The song helped rationalise a moment in girl in red’s life where her own thoughts were playing catch-up with her feelings explaining “When the words finally came to me I felt incredibly grateful.”
Today’s collaboration with Spotify follows girl in red’s first two EP releases, Chapter 1 & Chapter 2, that were both written, recorded and produced in her bedroom in Norway. This track sees her use Spotify’s set-up to create something different yet oh-so-familiar. She explains “I’m stoked to be a part of the new studio concept and to have gotten the opportunity to record the track in Spotify’s studio. The possibilities to be creative in there is something I really took advantage of and it turned the song into what it is today.”
