New single by our new friends erik & ella
Released May 19th 2017, ”Han Som Har Flest Saker När Han Dör Han Vinner” is the debut single of Sthlm Songs’ artists Erik & Ella. It features the longest title with what may be the sparsest lyrics in quite a while, and yet the song places a firm boot in the male capitalist establishment…while being totally danceable. Dig it!

Sthlm Songs proudly gives you Felicia’s new single ”Window Nr 9”. About the song and the beautiful animated video she says:
”Window Nr 9 is a story about humanity, sexuality and power. In the song, a woman tells a story about her living as a sex worker. She lives in her own world, a utopia. In her world everyone is equal. She can see that the men that come to her are suffering, in need of help, and she wants to help. Window Nr 9 is a clash between two realities, as in the eyes of the men she is an object giving sexual satisfaction, nothing more. We all see the world through different eyes, and as long as the power resides among those who do not see everyone as equal, there will be oppression.”

We proudly present our brand new artist Felicia and her very first single ”Money, Money, Money”. About choosing to do an Abba-cover she says:
”‘It’s a rich man’s world’ is the essence of the song. A quick look at that phrase and another at what is going on in the world and we all know ‘the rich man’. It is his world we live in. It does not have to be about money or a person. You can be rich in other ways, privileged. My version of ‘Money, Money, Money’ is about how much easier it would be to stand on the same side as the money and the power, holding hands with the privileged. ‘The rich man’, whoever that is, needs to understand his power. He needs to understand the effect of his wealth on the world surrounding him.”
Produced by Markus Sjöberg and Petter Näse. Recorded by Markus Sjöberg and Petter Näse. Mixed by Markus Sjöberg. Mastered by Eric Broyhill at MonsterLab Audio. Written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.

Pills – released may 27th
”Pills” is the first single from the follow-up to The Heartbeat Band’s debut album Sailor Heart. In “Pills”, the band’s songwriter Marcus Granfors deals with the fact that, in today’s society, we feel worse day by day while we all really strive to feel loved and valuable. Burned-out and lonely people choose the easy way out either to make it through the day or to end it, while sincere relationships might be the only thing that really helps. Only true love love makes us do the good and bad things we never thought we could.
