Norwegian indie-pop star Astrid S releases her new single ‘Hurts So Good’ today, taken from her highly anticipated self-titled debut EP, out May 20th. The EP consists of five tracks including ‘Paper Thin’ and ‘Hurts So Good’ the official video for which is available to watch now.
Of the single, Astrid S says: “I’m very excited to finally release this single from my debut EP. It shows another side of me, I think. It’s more like a ballad, and the range in it is a little different than what I usually sing. I really like the song very much, and I hope you do too!”
The music video was directed by the acclaimed screenwriter and director, Andreas Öhman at Naïve Studio in Sweden. About the video, Astrid remarks:
“It was a very cool experience to do this music video. I went to Stockholm for two days, and we filmed it by a beautiful summer house outside of the city, as well as in a studio. It felt so uncomfortable doing the scenes with the actor which depict the aspects of a complicated relationship reflected in the song’s lyrics. But after seeing the final result it was so worth it. I’m very happy with the video, and I think it suits both the song and me.”
The debut EP, ‘Astrid S’, will be released May 20th. EP tracklisting below.
- Paper Thin
- Hurts So Good
- I Don’t Wanna Know
