Follow our New Music Daily playlist and check out "Sucker Punch"

Featured on an astonishing 17 New Music Friday Spotify playlists, from Japan to Turkey, Sigrid has delivered an upbeat, glistening track sure to be another huge hit. ‘Sucker Punch’ addresses the thrilling emotions that come with an unexpected relationship, edging away from the melancholy tones on some of her previous releases.

Sigrid has consistently released high quality, innovative pop music that has captured the attention of a huge global audience. Her EP ‘Raw’ was critically acclaimed, and single ‘Strangers’ is a certified-Gold record. The numbers don’t lie: Sigrid’s Spotify following has tripled since the start of 2018. Alongside 17 New Music Friday playlist features, "Sucker Punch" has picked up support from 182 other influential playlists, pushing her playlist following to over 26 million (Instrumental Music Scouting Platform).

"Sucker Punch is one of my favourite songs so far and I've been so excited for release day," explains Sigrid. "Emily Warren, Martin Sjølie and I made it when we were in Ocean Sound Recordings in my hometown a while ago. The song is just a result of our usual way of working: talking, cooking, strolling, singing, dancing, experimenting...! Ugh it was so fun - just like the track itself," she continues.

The video is accompanied by an augmented reality lyric video, and is to be followed up with a host of live dates this November, including the 02 Brixton Academy in London. Sigrid is seemingly unstoppable.
