The most recent winner of Swedish Idol has released his later single over the weekend. Following on from ‘Can’t Hold Me Down’ and ‘Bricks’, he releases ‘Golden’. It’s a country flavoured folk ballad with a hugely healthy amount of “HEY” chants throughout. And it’s just a fact that any country or folk number is instantly made so much better with the inclusion of a “HEY” (or fifty, in this case). If you’re a fan of Martin’s fellow Swedish artists Smith & Thell, you’ll find a lot to love here too. ‘Golden’ was written by Martin himself, along with Jimmy Jansson, Palle Hammarlund, Samuel Waermo, and Sharon Vaughn
You can find ‘Golden’ on our Best New Artists playlist.
