Danish singer/songwriter Malte Ebert today releases his debut single ‘Rather Be’ – a joyfully catchy dose of polished pop with universal themes of love and desire. The single is out now via Universal Music (Denmark).

The 23-year-old, who has previously released music under the name ‘Gulddreng’, now takes his inspiration from artists such as The Weeknd, Charlie Puth, Nick Jonas and Liam Payne, taking him in a new direction for the global release of music under his own name.
Of the track, Malte says: “I’m so excited to finally be releasing a single under my own name! I’ve had so much fun recording music as ‘Gulddreng’ but now I’m ready to embark on the next chapter of my music career and can’t wait for everybody to hear the songs. I hope everybody enjoys the summer sounds of ‘Rather Be’ as much as I enjoyed making it.”
As ‘Gulddreng’ (translated as The Golden Boy), Malte enjoyed huge success in his native country releasing seven singles since 2016 – all of which hit the Number 1 spot on Spotify in Denmark. In February, he announced the end of the ‘Gulddreng’ alter ego.
New single ‘Rather Be’ was recorded in LA earlier this year. It is set to be followed by two more singles and an EP release in the coming months.
