Andreas Öhman) for "Hurts So Good", which serves as the second single following "Paper Thin" to be lifted from her forthcoming 5-song, self-titled debut EP, due out on May 20th via Island Records.
Speaking on the track, Astrid says:
"I'm very excited to finally release this single from my debut EP. It shows another side of me, I think. It's more like a ballad, and the range in it is a little different than what I usually sing. I really like the song very much, and I hope you do too!"
As for the video, she goes on to explain:
"It was a very cool experience to do this music video. I went to Stockholm for two days, and we filmed it by a beautiful summer house outside of the city, as well as in a studio. It felt so uncomfortable doing the scenes with the actor which depict the aspects of a complicated relationship reflected in the song’s lyrics. But after seeing the final result it was so worth it. I'm very happy with the video, and I think it suits both the song and me."
