In the past nine months, Sigrid has gone from unknown to one of the most exceptional breakout artists of 2017.
Sigrid’s rise has been unrivaled; from releasing her acclaimed debut Don’t Kill My Vibe EP, which has amassed over 100M global streams – to playing multiple festivals worldwide and being chosen as Apple’s Up Next Artist, all in less than a year. Now Sigrid releases the mighty ‘Strangers’, produced by Martin Sjolie, the dream pairing behind ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’. With lyrics of steel, meandering melodies and stark honesty, ‘Strangers’ embodies the natural, sincere talent Sigrid has become renowned for. Watch the lyric video to the track HERE.
At only 21-years-old, the Norwegian pop sensation also gives her vocals to the soundtrack of the epic action adventure film Justice League, with a powerful, haunting take on Leonard Cohen’s ‘Everybody Knows’. Both the film and soundtrack are out today.

From the tiny town of Ålesund in Norway, Sigrid has been quietly creating a world which emboldens her followers, displaying outstanding song writing ability with hard-hitting and empowering words, laced over unexpected and daring melodies. Gracing almost every festival stage this summer, Sigrid has been dotted across the globe, from the furthest edges of Norway, to Iceland and the US, with a stand out performance at Glastonbury. From Latitude, SXSW, Life is Beautiful, Lollapalooza and last weekend Pitchfork Paris, the constant has been masses of crowds, building with each new performance.
With 2M monthly Spotify listeners and a critically acclaimed debut EP, it’s hard to believe Sigrid has only been in the public sphere since February. 2018 is waiting.
‘Strangers’ is out now on Island Records.
