One of our Swedish artists to watch in 2018, Albin Lee Meldau, has become quite a favourite here at Ja Ja Ja, following his steady flow of great releases last year through the Bloodshot EP. As the new year has now kicked in, Meldau returns with a brand new single ‘The Weight Is Gone’ – a harmony-filled combination of classic soul and pop.

2017 showed its most brilliant side for the Gothenburg-based artist, who received a nomination for Best Newcomer at Sweden’s Grammy Awards as well as winning the 2016 Anchor Award in Germany, being praised with these words: “Something is pouring out of his coronary heart and soul when he sings.” America’s NPR also named him one of their must-see artists at South by Southwest in Texas.

Meldau will head out on tour in Europe in April, followed by the release of his full length debut album About You in beginning of June. So keep your ears open for more from him this year, and check out the new single below…
