What’s this? The brand new single from Swedish artist Amanda Fondell – this is ‘Crown’.
What does Amanda say? “So this is a special one. As an artist, everything is about renewing yourself, all the time. And it was through what I love most, to create – and being present in the process – that forced me to take the next step. By this song I want to remind others, If you get lost, you can always find yourself again and create your own way to live this beautiful life.”
What does Scandipop say? Suitably regal, given the title, in that the song has a quiet, poised confidence to it. Presenting itself as an assured and assertive declaration of itself.
Written by? Amanda herself, and no one else. As she says: “This the first song that I’ve ever produced and recorded myself. I’ve always had so many musical ideas stuck in my head and no tools to set them free. Often finding myself struggling to describe my vision in sessions, to the point that one day I decided I needed to be able to get what I had in my head… down and recorded in my computer. Since then I’ve spent hours and hours trying to learn the art of music production. Tweaking sounds endlessly until it finally matches what I hear in my head. And every day learning something new…”
