What’s this? Finnish artist ALMA is back with a brand new single – and a whole new sound. This is ‘Cowboy’.
What does ALMA say? “When I first left my home town to write in LA I felt scared and small – like the world was way too big and for me.. it took me a long time to work out who I was and what I wanted to say. I was afraid to give away anything personal at first (us Finnish people are naturally very reserved) so it took a long time for me to understand my true identity and start getting it into my songs. So it helped to create an alter ego – to be a Cowboy.”
Written by? ALMA herself, along with Justin Tranter, Sarah Hudson and BloodPop. BloodPop also produced it.
More from ALMA? After releasing a debut EP and then a mixtape, she finally releases her debut album early next year. This is the first single from it.
