Sarah Klang Shares Second Single ‘Girls’ From Forthcoming New Album

‘Girls’ is the second teaser taken from Grammy winning Gothenburg artist Sarah Klang’s forthcoming album, coming 2021.

Following the “galloping country-rock” (The Line of Best Fit) of first single ‘Canyon’ (Sept 2020), ’Girls’’ sees a moving return to form for Klang as the self-declared “saddest girl in Sweden”. 

‘Girls’ is a beautiful vintage-ballad. Stripped back to showcase Klang’s soulful, luxuriant vocal, the cascading Americana guitar of the single’s predecessor is replaced by stark piano melody. The melding of both a heartstring tugging smoky melancholia exploring, as Klang explains, “The feeling of wanting to become a new person, stop making the same mistakes. Being really tired of yourself.” 

Sarah Klang creates these brooding orchestrations which resonate with such beauty and serenity. Klang’s far-reaching emotive-enriched vocal harmonies provide such a haunting and human touch to the instrumentation. The new single is delicate yet Klang’s distinctive deliverance leaves you in awe. The power of this artist consumes you.

Sarah Klang will release her second album in 2021. It will follow her debut album ‘Love In The Milky Way’  (2018) which won ‘Best Album’ at the Swedish Grammys and topped the charts. Its processor, ‘Creamy Blue’ (2019) was also nominated at the Grammys in both the ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Alternative Pop’ categories, as well as receiving a nomination for ‘European Album of the Year’ at the IMPALA Award.  

As well as achieving huge early success and accolades for her records, Klang’s fun, exuberant live shows have seen her sell out shows across Scandinavia and mainland Europe, including last year’s headline show at The Lexington, London, as well as performing at huge arena shows as support to First Aid Kit. 

New single ‘Girls’ was recorded in Gothenburg, produced by Kevin Andersson, and mastered by Magnus Lindberg. It is released a digital single today via Pangur Records.
