With an impressive past discography collaborating with two of dance-pop’s biggest names; Swedish House Mafia and Adrian Lux, and extensive press support from the likes of Complex, The Line of Best Fit, EARMILK, PopMatters, Ja Ja Ja and HighClouds, the Swedish singer releases new single ‘Talking Truth’.
LUNE aka Linnéa Martinsson released her widely acclaimed debut album “Music & Sports” back in 2013. Two years ago, she returned with teaser single “Healing Song”, which became one of the most played songs on Swedish radio that year.
With the release of ‘Talking Truth’, her thickly textured vocals garner feelings of intense intimacy. LUNE tells us about the new single; “Talking Truth is a purple explosion in the chest, spreading like a shock wave in all directions. Every word is connected to the heart, it makes me wanna run naked. I feel really free. I’m happy the track is almost out there”.
“I am an extremely emotional person and sometimes I get frustrated by my inability to put feelings into words. At times I wish we lived in a world where everyone was naked and no-one could speak – I speak with my body.
“This song is about an overwhelming sense of love and desire, about jumping into ice-cold water after soaking in the sun. Sensual summer dreams plus a sparkling glass of lilac wine in the shade.
“We started ”Talking truth” during a trip to L.A. And though the initial plan was to write for other artists, we ended up locking ourselves in the house, not letting anyone else in throughout the whole stay. Back in Sweden we recorded the song in Benny Andersons studio – I got a week of studio time there as a gift from ”Icona Pop” and YouTube.
“I invited a lot of friends to the recordings and on this particular songs Agnes, Vaz and my sister Viola are singing all the magical BV’s that you can hear in the chorus. On one occasion Benny himself walked into the studio and stated that this was the best song he’d heard in years. I was over the moon! Two weeks later I found out that that it wasn’t him but just some random guy with a beard. I was so disappointed – Benny is the man – a real mango!”
Since the last release LUNE has participated in Spotify’s Equalizer Project and started her own label Play Human, where she is now releasing her music. We can expect more new music during the summer.
“I love the idea of creating a direct link to the audience – an inviting and instant communication where people can come with me and experience what I’m experiencing in real-time. Nothing between me and the listener.” –LUNE
‘Talking Truth’ will be released on 14th June ‘19 via Play Human.
