Hanne Leland is a Norwegian born, London based electro-pop singer and songwriter. Since entering the music scene in 2013 as a country-pop songwriter in Nashville, TN, Hanne has crossed over to the electro-pop genre, and now sees herself in studios in LA and London with star producers such as Brian West (Sia, Nelly Furtado) and Red Triangle (Little Mix, Charlie Puth) among others. Hanne Leland’s music has been streamed almost 4 million times on Spotify alone.
Hanne continues to live up to the hype with the release of her new single Stay (June 1st). The single was written by Hanne, and produced by Jim Eliot, the producer responsible for Ellie Goulding’s breakthrough hit “Anything Could Happen”. “Stay” is an emotional yet powerful electro-pop ballad about the intense fear of losing someone. Last year, Hanne’s musical prowess led her to receive praise from the renowned magazine, Galore, and she opened for the legendary girl group, All Saints, during their sold-out comeback tour, “Red Flag” in the UK.
Speaking on her latest work, Hanne Leland notes; “I wrote “Stay” on my piano at home last year. I brought it in to a couple of different producers, but none of them were catching the vibe I wanted for the production, until I presented it to Jim (Eliot), and he started working his magic on it. The recording process was really emotional as the song is very personal to me, and I feel like you can really hear the raw emotion coming through in the song.”
