Zara Larsson releases new single ‘Love Me Land’
Co-written with Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, the song combines elements of Swedish pop with future-facing R&B. The video sees Zara dancing solo, in a sparse cube straight out of a sci-fi fantasy.
“I wrote ‘Love Me Land’ with my friends Justin and Julia after a long period of writing for my sophomore international album,” said Zara. “It felt like a kind of ‘eureka’ moment in understanding the journey I’ve gone on in discovering what it is to be a woman and an artist. The song is about accidentally falling in love but owning it, and I think that combines two things I love and do well – female empowerment and pop bangers!
“At the moment, we’re all experiencing this scary unknown world and having to endure some hard realities; I hope this can provide a little escapism for everyone, because sometimes dancing can solve everything, even just for a moment.”
Zara’s Gold-certified 2017 album, So Good, is the second most-streamed debut on Spotify by a female artist, with over 5.5 billion streams. Her catalogue is packed with hits including ‘Never Forget You’ with MNEK (certified 2x Platinum in the UK), ‘Lush Life’ (3x Platinum), ‘Ain’t My Fault’ (Platinum), and 2019’s ‘Ruin My Life’ (Platinum). Her highly-anticipated second album is coming soon.
