Tove Styrke has another new song, this time her bittersweet single "Start Walking."
It's a dazzling, very upbeat track, but just below the surface, the lyrics are reflective of a relationship at the point when it's already over but you have the be the one who chooses to walk away.
"['Start Walking' is] a song I made together with some amazing writers and producers and I’m obsessed with it," says the Swedish artist. "It’s an upbeat song with sad lyrics, which is my favorite combination. It’s about a person who knows a relationship is over, and how it sucks to actually be the one to leave but you know there is no other way.”
Styrke co-wrote the song with Caroline Ailin (Dua Lipa's “New Rules” and “Don’t Start Now”), Sly (Shawn Mendes), Lostboy (Tom Grennan, Anne-Marie) and Pablo Bowman (Marshmello, Alan Walker).
"I love the insane music video we made for the single," says Styrke of the accompanying clip. "It’s about a Swedish ‘dansband’ with supernatural powers. ‘Dansband’ is a signature style of Swedish pop music that has drawn huge audiences dancing cheek to cheek around the country for decades. My dad played in one of these bands – they were called Max Fenders – in the 1970’s, which is where the idea for the video initially comes from."
