Today, acclaimed Swedish artist & songwriter Nea has released her brand new single, “A Lover Like Me,” out now via Sony Music RCA UK. The new song is the first single to be released from Nea’s forthcoming debut album, TRANSPARENT, due out Autumn 2023.
Armed with a fresh sound rooted in the raw undertones of ’90s grunge, seamlessly melded with Nea’s signature pop sensibility, “A Lover Like Me” is a self-love anthem dripping with magnetic charisma and fearless grit. Written and produced by Nea and Daniel Ledinsky (Tove Lo, Shakira, Rihanna), Nea says, “A Lover Like Me is one of those rare songs that just wrote itself. I had a lyric idé, Daniel played some chords and 2 hours later we had the song! I love the rawness of the vocals and the vibe, that there’s an edge to it.”
Stepping into 2023 with over 800 million streams as a solo artist, today’s new single marks a bold start to a year destined for massive growth for Nea. With her debut album slated for fall, Nea is also confirmed as an expert panelist alongside Carl Falk & Elias Kapari on Sweden’s forthcoming Songland shoot-off, which debuts this spring.
First establishing herself as one of Sweden’s most prolific songwriters, penning songs for notable artists such as Zara Larsson, Felix Jaehn, Tiny Tempah, Tove Styrke, and Axwell, 2019 marked the beginning of a destined transition for the multifaceted creative. First debuting as an artist with single “Some Say,” the track, along with its Felix Jaehn Remix, were certified diamond, platinum or gold in 21 countries, reached #1 on airplay in 7 countries and became the 9th most played track on European radio in 2020. Since then, Nea has released a debut EP as well as collaborations with artists such as SHY Martin and Sandro Cavazza.
