Dagny Releases New Single ‘Somebody’

Dagny SomebodyDebut Album To Be Released in Two Parts, With ‘Side A’ Out May 22nd

Norwegian cult pop icon Dagny today (1 May 2020) releases new single ‘Somebody’ – the second track to be lifted from her upcoming debut album. Today Dagny is also announcing that her long-awaited debut will be split into two parts, with the first 6 tracks ‘Side A’ available for streaming on May 22nd and the full album (Side B) to arrive in September later this year.

New single ‘Somebody’ sparks into life with a dance-floor ready rhythm section, before bubbling synths open up to provide a lush backdrop to Dagny‘s unmistakable vocal.

A song written with a goal of conveying the ultimate “in-love” experience, Dagny went on to say: “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.

Both new single ‘Somebody’, and the previously released ‘Come Over’ truly epitomise Dagny‘s singular sound, style, and spirit. “Now – more than ever – I am able to be personal in my music. I want to tell stories that mean something to me, but also stories that others can relate to” Dagny said.

Once again, Dagny 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.

2020 will see Dagny release her debut album, with ‘Side A’ out May 22nd. New single ‘Somebody’ is out now via Universal / Ingrooves.
