Every week, Trenda adds the latest and most interesting Nordic pop to the New Nordic Pop playlist on Spotify!
This week, we’ve added 24 songs all in all, so there’s at least as many good reasons to tune in to the playlist. That would have meant a pretty extensive list though, so we decided to pick three highlights to speak about here, but you can hear the whole playlist over at Trenda, updated each and every week!
Seinabo Sey – Poetic
‘Poetic’ was premiered on Swedish radio earlier this year but has now been released as a single outside of Sweden, and also appears on the EP For Maudo. Needless to say, ‘Poetic’ went straight to the New Nordic Pop playlist. It’s yet another fantastic performance by the artist who brought us ‘Younger’ and ‘Hard Time’ and it will “make your life more awesome” according to Taylor Swift herself, and who are we to disagree?
Bleachers & MØ – You’re Still A Mystery
Bleachers, a.k.a. Jack Antonoff from Fun, decided to remake his previous album under the title Terrible Thrills Vol. 2 using the same songs but only female vocalists. Among the chosen ones were Charlie XCX, Sia and Denmark’s own sporty spice MØ. Obviously, the song deserved a spot on the New Nordic Pop playlist. This while the Nordic countries still just can’t seem to get enough of ‘Lean On’, eight months after the release.
Avicii – And his new album
It can’t be denied: if anything is big news in Nordic pop this week, it’s Aviici‘s new album, titled Stories. The songs ‘Broken Arrow’ and ‘For a Better Day’ have already started climbing around the top of the charts in the Nordics (and many other places) and are also included on the New Nordic Pop Spotify-playlist.
Worth mentioning is that collaborating on the album are artists such as Chris Martin from Coldplay and Sweden’s Daniel Adams-Ray, who’s been responsible for some of the most interesting Swedish pop lately and who we also featured on this week’s Trenda New Nordic Pop playlist.
