Swedish rising pop artist AmwinN has released her new single ‘DeLorean’, out now via Universal Music Sweden. She is outspoken on the track - lamenting on the men of today, wishing she could go back in time to visit her ideal men of the past.
Of the track, Amwin says:
“Making this song, we kind of just wanted to play around with how much I dislike the dudes in this day and age. I often go back in time and think ‘shit, if only I could get on Leonardo Dicaprio circa Romeo and Juliet or Kurt Cobain around when 'Nevermind' came out”. These Instagram models and YouTube dudes nowadays do absolutely nothing for me. Just makes me wish I had a time machine so I could head back and get what I really want.”

“Wish I had a machine to go back in time,
’Cos future boys are lames, can’t get nothing right
I’d take that b*tch way back, back to ’99
And f*ck Leo DiCaprio in his prime…
DeLorean” - Lyrics from ‘DeLorean’
Amwin - real name Amanda Winberg - has been making her mark on the international music scene recently, with her previous big single ‘Uber’ which earned her over 1 million online streams alone.
Critically too, Amwin has already attracted the attention of tastemaker press, with Clash commenting that she “inhabits a world daubed in vivid colour, with those fluro tones used to craft a deeply personal spell”, and PopDust noting that “her lyrics are an authentic portrayal of the (often unsaid) thoughts that bounce around our heads”. The Interns remarked that she is “another Swedish newcomer that you need to be paying attention to”.

"I figured it's time I stand up for myself and this is my best way of doing that. I'm so looking forward to singing for you guys again" - Seinabo Sey on "I Owe You Nothing"
Seinabo Sey has announced her new single "I Owe You Nothing" and accompanying b-side "Remember ft. Jacob Banks" both are now available to buy and stream on all platforms. This announcement marks Seinabo Sey's first new music in over two years since the release of her critically acclaimed debut album "Pretend" in 2015, which TIME magazine called "One of the Year's Best Debut Albums" and SPIN named one of the Best Albums of 2015. The video for lead single, "I Owe You Nothing" premiered via The FADER earlier today and is available to watch now: https://SeinaboSey.lnk.to/IOweYouNothingVideo
Listen to/Share "I Owe You Nothing" and "Remember" HERE
Seinabo has once again teamed up with close friend and producer MagnusTheMagnus (aka Magnus Lidehäll) as well as previous collaborators Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir plus her friend Isak Alverus - the result is a defiant and rousing brand of soulful, relentlessly catchy multi-genre pop.
The new music sees Seinabo crafting songs revolving around the issues about which she has been vocal on social media and in her enchanting live performances: womanhood and feminism, identity, body positivity and an adherence to loving yourself.
Pushing her art to the next level, Seinabo has taken much of the creative direction for the new record into her own hands, spending the past few months in Gambia (her father's home country) to film music videos and shoot a plethora of breathtaking new images which encompass her new direction. In the "I Owe You Nothing" video, Seinabo blends the rich, bright colours of local fabrics with confidence that is evident throughout, she explains "I figured it's time I stand up for myself and this is my best way of doing that."
Seinabo Sey rose to critical acclaim in 2015 following the release of two EPs and her debut album 'Pretend'. The album was certified gold in Sweden, earned her a 2015 Swedish Grammy Award for Best Newcomer (winning Best Pop the following year too) and a P3 Gold Award for Artist of the Year, as well as the European Border Breaker Award in 2016. Seinabo spent three years around the release of the album touring the globe, stunning audiences with her expressive, soulful voice seeing her play festivals like Way Out West, Glastonbury and Roskilde as well as TV performances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in the US and Later… with Jools Holland in the UK.
Seinabo Sey will be releasing more music this year and will also be performing at Stockholm's 12,000-capacity Globe Arena on Friday 5 October - tickets available to buy now.

Songwriter, guitarist and singer Michael Crimson is releasing his debut solo album, Medusa on December 8, 2017 via Gain Music Entertainment/Sony Music, in both physical and digital formats.
The album is a work of musical art that honors the tradition of legendary lyrics-and-guitar-driven rock music by artists like Pink Floyd, The Doors and Led Zeppelin and will be celebrated by a series of shows throughout winter 2017/2018.
Medusa’s groundbreaking songs feature otherworldly guitar melodies that ring out above a multitude of instrumental harmonies and heavy, rolling rhythms that explode together into an expansive universe of sound.
The lyrics of Medusa are rooted in the magic and mystery of epic stories from Greek mythology. It is through compelling characters like Medusa and Perseus that Crimson explores his personal experiences with romantic love, faith, self-discovery, grief, death and beyond.Crimson’s songs shift perspectives between characters in order to shed light on different scenes from his own life through powerful, distinct voices. By diving into the depths of mythology and adding his own contemporary interpretations of classic tales, Crimson opens up a mysterious yet relatable new world.
