Dagny will release her long-awaited debut album this September. Plus, on May 22nd the first half of the album (Side A) will be released digitally. Sparking into life with a dance-floor-ready rhythm section before bubbling synths open up around Dagny’s magisterial pop vocal; “Somebody” was written with a goal of conveying the ultimate “in-love” experience.
Said Dagny: “It’s the all-consuming and exciting feeling when everything is still new. I’ve been lucky to experience it. I find that when I’m in love I feel everything ten times more than usual. With ‘Somebody’ for me it’s not just the lyrics but the whole vibe of the song that represents that: when I listen to it I get a lot of positive energy and I just wanna throw myself into something new and exciting.”
The pop songstress worked with directing duo TUSK on the video for “Somebody”. Comprised of Kerry Furrh & Olivia Mitchell, the pair have recently worked on Camilla Cabello’s single release campaign and live show visuals, as well as creating work for artists including Halsey, Olly Murs, Olivia O’Brien, Nicki Minaj and many others.
Exciting and supple, the vocalization of Dagny, justifies the accolades garnered and championed by her fans. Yielding over 300 million streams, sold out tours and critical acclaim by everybody from Nylon and Billboard to The Guardian and Harper’s BAZAAR, it’s hard to keep the Norwegian out of the spotlight.
