- ALMA Premieres New Music Video for “Cowboy”
- Finnish singer-songwriter ALMA has dropped a new music video for “Cowboy” directed by Miikka Lommi.
She co-wrote the song between Helsinki and LA with Eren Cannata, Justin Tranter, Sarah Hudson and BloodPop®, and premiered the song on BBC Radio 1 earlier this month.
The video was shot in Finland for 3 days like documentary film.
“We shot in Finland in the places I used to hang with my friend,” ALMA wrote on Twitter. “My real friends are in the video, we had so much fun shooting because it felt more like shooting a documentary. I wrote the treatment for the video and the amazing Miikka Lommi directed the whole thing. My girlfriend and I kiss in the video, it’s a super quick scene tell me if you can see it!”
The song is the first taste form her upcoming debut album, which is set to be released in 2019.
- “I wrote it with Justin Tranter and Sarah Hudson who are my favourite songwriters to work with," she told about the song in an interview. "We were in the studio one day and they said ‘Go freestyle!’. 'I’m a motherfucking cowboy' just came out of me. I think the idea had been in my brain for a while it just needed an outlet.”
She continued, “I’ve spent a lot of my life being told who to be, what to say or how to behave by the world. There’s constant pressure on us all to fit in and ‘Cowboy’ is about exactly the opposite. I want my fans to feel like they can be whoever, say whatever and look however when they listen to my music. Here you are accepted no matter what.”
