Zara Larsson has released a show-stopping video for “Love Me Land,” her first solo track of 2020.
The Swedish pop singer handles the video solo, dancing in a sheer, bedazzled black bodysuit. Larsson co-wrote the song with pop songwriters Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, saying in a statement that “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.”
She added, “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.”
Larsson’s platinum-selling sophomore album So Good arrived in 2017 and a steady stream of collaborations and singles have followed, namely “Like it is” with Kygo and Tyga, “A Brand New Day” with K-pop titans BTS, “Wow” produced by Marshmello, “Don’t Worry Bout Me” and “Ruin My Life.” Larsson said last year that her third studio album (and second international album) was delayed “due to not feeling satisfied,” but the release “Love Me Land” might signal that it’s finally on the way.
