Anna of the North shares new lo-fi track and lockdown video
Today, Anna of the North's "Dream Girl" gets a fresh take from Anna herself. The homemade track and video is stripped down with a lo-fi aesthetic and gives fans an intimate, behind the scenes look at Anna. From celebrating her Spellemannprisen (Norwegian Grammy Award) win to solo dance parties and moments of reflection, the video allows fans to take a look at Anna's life in Norway. "Dream Girl" comes ahead of an acoustic EP, set to release later this summer.
Most recently, Anna surprised fans with a lyric video for the track that saw her doing the ultimate social distance shenanigans; prancing around her bedroom, trying on clothes and getting dressed up to go... nowhere. The Norwegian artist's bedroom pop is more relevant now than ever for dreaming up your own reality and dancing alone in your bedroom.
The video comes in the midst of Anna discovering, to her surprise, that "Dream Girl" was in the Global Apple iPad Pro commercial last month. In less than a week Anna was charting on iTunes in over 30+ Countries, Daily Spotify Streams doubled, and overall streaming increased 187%. Anna's debut album, Lovers, word-of-mouth success culminated in the title track taking off via a surprise sync in Netflix’s seminal smash hit ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’, ‘Lovers’ is still streaming over 100K times per day, nearly a year after the film's release, and made the top 100 charts in 171 countries. But that's not the end, a mere week after hearing "Dream Girl" take flight, quite literally as a bird in Apple's iPad Pro sync, Anna was startled to hear yet another track, "Playing Games," as she finished the first episode of the new Netflix Series 'Never Have I Ever.' That track has been Shazamed over 29,000 times since the Netflix release.
