Veronica Maggio

The sun is slowly returning to guide us into the summer time, and our favourite pop stars are doing exactly the same thing! 

Swedish pop powerhouse Veronica Maggio reveals a brand new single today entitled ‘Den Första Är Alltid Gratis’, marking the first new music from the artist since her 2013 hit album Handen i fickan fast jag bryr mig.

Responding to comments on her Facebook page, Veronica states of the new song: “This time, I wanted to describe the present and pull up my dark thoughts and feelings in the light. With the help of sad synthesizers and angry guitars” – and ‘Den Första Är Alltid Gratis’ (The First Is Always Free) does just that. It’s a glittering addition to her back catalogue, tinged with a gently melancholic melody over which Veronica’s distinctive vocals are able to soar.

As mentioned, it’s been a while since we’ve heard any new music from Veronica, who joined us to curate her very own edition of the Nordic Playlist ahead of her performance at Roskilde Festival last year, where we caught up with her for an exclusive interview. The Stockholm based artist returned briefly to appear on the track ‘Space Invades My Mind’ with Maja Francis last year (keep a close eye on the Nordic Playlist for more from Maja Francis in the coming days!), but today’s single launch marks a very, very welcome return for this fantastic performer, and an exciting hint of more new music to come.

‘Den Första Är Alltid Gratis’ is out now, and you can listen to it via Spotify!
