What’s this? The latest single from a talented pop newcomer from Norway – Hedda Mae. This is ‘Madness’.
Maedness, if you will! We like it!
And do you like the song, too? We love it, actually. Infectiously upbeat and fun pop music with a modern disco twist on it. Yesterday, she released the equally adorable music video.
What does Hedda say? “’Madness’ was written during the first session we had had in a while. Because I live in Bergen and my producer Benjamin Giørtz (Tiësto, Betty Who) lives in Oslo, and the country had just started allowing people to travel again within Norway. It’s a buzz to be finally able to do the thing you love again, and that was probably where the bubbly, playful vibe in this song came from. The lyrics are about when someone suddenly becomes interested in you and gets really friendly, and you question yourself about where they’re really coming from. Because other people’s intentions often aren’t good, and you know you shouldn’t get involved really, but it can be difficult to keep yourself away.”
Written by? The artist herself, along with Hedda Grønhaug and Benjamin Giørtz.
More from Hedda? A few months back she released the – quite frankly, brilliant – ‘What Do You Want From Me‘. Her debut EP comes out on October 16th.
