Simon Andersson collaborates with Swedish DJ – Sir Duke – on this uplifting single in the Pop / Dance genre. Devastated in the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic the duo joined forces and wrote a song about hope, love and freedom.
“The song is about loosing yourself but not loosing hope. Being inspired by someone you love and freeing yourself from the chains of your past. In a vast and competitive world the way forward is not always clear, but we find strength in other people, loved ones and friends.”
Simon Andersson is making a name for himself as a cross-over artist, handling multiple genres both as a writer, singer and a music producer. He walked off the Fonda theater stage in Hollywood in 2013, winning ”Best Song of The Year”. Went on a recording trip to Nashville and climbed the Music Row Charts with two singles.

This never happened to me before but when we were basically done with everything, there was still this thing bothering me. I wasn't sure what. Went back home, picked up my acoustic guitar and started playing around with some alternatives. Ended up changing key – and there it was! All peaces fell into place and I knew I had to re-record everything and change the key. That's not a quick fix and I wasn't even sure it was gonna work, 'cause when you change key you change the harmonics and it might just sound bad. Not the vocals – but all the instruments and effects you've done. (8/9) #NewMusic #NewRelease #NewMusicFriday
