A brand new Darin single? Oh yes. And not just a brand new single either. ‘Ta Mig Tillbaka’ marks the beginning of a brand new era for Darin. It’s the first single to be taken from his next record. And it’s the first time he’s released an original song på svenska.
And what’s it like? VERY different to ANYTHING he’s ever done before. This is like the first BIG reinvention in his ten year career. ‘Ta Mig Tillbaka’ is an atmospheric country ballad – and sets him aside sonically as a one man First Aid Kit.
But we don’t like it when popstars go all serious on us. We don’t – normally. But when it’s done well, it’s allowed. And Darin’s ‘Ta Mig Tillbaka’ is one of those cases. It’s a bit like when September went all Petra Marklund. That turned out excellently didn’t it? We reckon Darin has it in him to pull it off too. And come on – he’s been at the dancepop thing for 10 years now, he was due an artistic reinvention. One listen to ‘Ta Mig Tillbaka’ and we were on board. Two listens and we’re in love.
More from Darin? Well we imagine that an album or EP is quite imminent from Darin. But in sooner terms, he performed this song on Norway and Sweden’s biggest chat show – Skavlan. Performance Below.
