What’s this? The brand-new single from Icelandic artist Hildur, released today. This is the nostaligic and empowering ‘1993’.
What does Hildur say? “1993 is an autobiographical anthem of my childhood. It was when I was 5 that I realized my dream was to create, tell stories and stand on stage. As per the hook “When I grow up I wanna be me”, it came to me as it was only recently I realized I had really became the person the 5 year old me wanted to be and was doing all the things I had dreamt of, without really giving myself the credit. This song is my journey and all the loopholes and fallbacks it took, all the disbelief but passion I experienced, all the insecurity and the creativity- which is me.So if my 5 year old self could hear one song from the future, I would want it to be this one. And I hope someone else on their journey to become themselves can relate.”
Written by? Written and produced by the lady herself!
More from Hildur? Last year she released ‘Everyday‘ and ‘Picture Perfect‘.
