Benjamin Ingrosso – Not Anybody’s Fault
Our fave Benji just dropped his new single and his first English song in a while. The song was written for an English album that was ready before he decided to release music in Swedish. He played the song on tour before COVID and the crowd loved it. Benji also promised more English music in the future. Tho, we love him singing in English AND Swedish!
On Instagram Benjamin wrote:
This release is a special thanks to everyone out there who has supported me and my music since day 1. Before I decided to release music in Swedish I had a full album in English ready, this song was one of my favorites on it. I played it at the last tour I had almost 2 years ago before COVID made live shows impossible. Since then some of you guys have been asking for it and about 2 months ago you started a little social media campaign, challenging me and the record label to release it this specific date, of course we want to do anything to make you guys happy so here it is!!! Thanks for listening! Hope you like it! #notanybodysfault
Listen to “Not Anybody’s Fault” below:
Brendan Murray – Little Island
With “Little Island” Brendan delivers a personal pop track. The song feels very intimate based on the lyrics. The sound has an uplifting feel and fits perfectly with his brilliant vocals. It is a story about meeting that one person and getting to know each other. The song was written by Brendan himself together with Mark Caplice and Robert Grace.

Emmelie De Forest – Typical Love Song
When making a tribute to an absolute classic there is a certain courtesy that must be taken into consideration. When the hit-focused new label DIDO wanted to mix the old with the new – the songwriting team, together with vocalist and songwriter Emmelie de Forest made a refreshing interpellation of the world hit ‘Big In Japan’ and ‘Typical Love Song’ was made. ‘Typical Love Song’ makes an extraordinary and energizing blend using the original chorus melody but with a fresh and modern twist. The original copyright owners – the German 80’s pop group Alphaville – absolutely loved the track and cleared the interpellation straight away.

Francesca Michielin – Nei tuoi occhi (eng.: In Your Eyes)
Francesca’s new single is for the new Italian movie Marilyn ha gli occhi neri (Marilyn has black eyes). The modern production works perfectly with her voice. The song seems timeless and it is just a great song for your playlist. On Instagram, she wrote: “It had been a long time since I went back to the studio to write and produce something, and it was magical to work on it diving into my heart.”
Ash Haynes (The Mama’s) – Say So
The Mama’s will release their EP this fall. A new song off of it is Ash’s own song called “Say So”. Just like for their last EP each of The Mama’s will have their own song on it. “Say So” is a funky pop song that let’s you easily groove and dance to it. They are amazing as a group, but also soooo talented each one alone. Can’t wait to hear more from them.
