This is a remarkable track that came out a couple of months. It’s ‘Alive’, from Norwegian artist Madden. A big ballad that’s taken to the next level by some epic production work. The final result is a song which is positively cinematic in its ability to grab and proceed to blow the listener away. Though the beauty of the song remains even when that production taken away – as evidenced by the release of the acoustic version earlier this month (listen below). Also below, check out the video for the single – featuring some seriously stunning imagery, the landscape of Lofoten in Norway. And if you want more music from Madden, see also his debut single released earlier this year – ‘Golden Light‘. Ace new artist alert.
