Two-time Melodifestivalen finalist, Mariette, has today released her new single “Louder” and is ready to kickstart summer ahead of a busy few months for her!
“Louder” is a pop song with a lot of drums and freedom. Mariette wrote it together with Melanie Wehbe, Patrik Jean, Elias Näslin and Karl-Ola Kjellholm. The song itself is produced by none other than Eurovision winning team “The Family”, comprising Linnea Deb, Joy Deb and Anton Hård af Segerstad. The Family has produced songs for Iggy Azalea, Loreen, Fifth Harmony, JoJo, Måns Zelmerlöw and others.
“A song of independence”
“I’m very lucky to finally release “Louder”, says Mariette and says she’s looking forward to her upcoming nationwide tour of Sweden.
Describing the song, Mariette continues:
“To me, “Louder” is a song of independence and about being strong in oneself. Listen more to your inner self and stop adjusting as much as others say and think.”
Translated from the original Swedish press release.
You can listen to “Louder” on Spotify and other major streaming platforms.
