[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ust in time for summer, Norwegian pop songstress and songwriter Hanne Leland releases her new single Weak For You, a lush, warm and organic pop track written about the kind of love that gives you butterflies and makes you weak at the knees.
-I wanted to capture the rush at the very beginning of a relationship. That feeling when you realise you’re falling for this person and you feel so unsure and vulnerable, but also ecstatic and brave at same time. I’ve been there myself a few times, and I’m trying to explain through a song how I experience it.
As one of the most promising artists coming out of Scandinavia these days, Hanne Leland has a busy year ahead of her with an EP release this summer, and a string of singles to be released throughout the year.
2018 saw the release of autobiographical songs like Underdogs, and the heart-wrenching synth ballad Stay that went on to become a bit of an underground hit, racking up 1,5 million views on YouTube and counting.
Hanne regularly finds herself in studios across the UK, Sweden and LA.

2019 will see the release of a lot more music from Hanne, and it’s safe to say she is one of the hardest working artists in the game, steadily climbing her way towards the top.
