Today, Swedish recording artist Tove Styrke has returned with a brand new single, “Say My Name.” The track is released today via Sony Music Sweden/RCA Records. Click here to watch the lyric video made by Regent Co.
“Say My Name” marks a confident re-introduction for Tove Styrke, her first new single since her 2015 U.S. debut, Kiddo. A playful love song at its core, “Say My Name” is about longing to be with someone while nothing else matters. Bottom line: Styrke wants people to feel good when they hear this track. Consider the mission accomplished.
As Styrke describes, “There’s a reason why so much music is about sex and love. It is linked to one’s worst and best experiences. I have not written about love before because I didn’t want to write another love song. But I have changed. I am tired of being angry, right now I just need to make music that makes me feel good.”
“Say My Name” is co-written and produced by fellow Swede, Elof Loelv, who has worked with artists such as Rihanna (“Stay” feat. Mikky Ekko), Zara Larsson and Icona Pop.
Armed with a slick new single, Tove Styrke is poised to take 2017 by storm with the cunning ease of a grown and matured musician. As Styrke proclaims, “The stronger I sing, the less I can affect the song. The more quiet I sing, the greater the differences will be in the tone and texture. A lot of people are afraid to talk loudly, but there is a strength to talking quietly – thus people really have to listen to you. There’s no need to try to be a man in a man’s world.”
Since the release of Kiddo, Styrke has stayed busy in the studio as well as touring with Years & Years and a UK television performance on Top of the Pops with Alan Walker.
Tove Styrke first landed a record deal with Sony Sweden in her late teens, which led to the 2010 release of her debut album, Tove Styrke.
