Sigrid has released new single ‘High Five’, and it’s a refreshingly honest pop banger from the rising Scandi star.
The track sees Sigrid opting for a subdued trip-hop sound, before it slowly builds into one of the huge choruses that the singer is quickly becoming renowned for.
Sigrid explains that it was influenced by “the importance of those relations where you both dare to be completely honest with each other, rather than exchanging superficial «high fives”.

Rising star Sigrid was previously tipped by the NME 100 as one of the most essential new acts of 2018 before she was then crowned as the winner of the BBC’s Sound Of… poll –
“It’s a lot to take in to have won something as prestigious as BBC Music Sound Of. I feel honoured as there are so many other artists I look up to who have won this before me, and honestly, I’m just really happy and proud of what my team and I have achieved together,” said Sigrid as she accepted the latter honour.
“I’m from a small town called Ålesund in Norway. I’m still 21 and it’s quite crazy to get this recognition. I’m very excited about the year ahead and sharing new music with everyone. I want to thank the panel for voting and the team involved in BBC Music Sound Of 2018.”
