ALMA Releases New Song “Tell Mama”
Finnish singer-songwriter Alma-Sofia Miettinen, aka ALMA announced her sophomore album “Time Machine” would be released on April 21, 2023.
It is her first album in three years since the 2020 debut album “Have U Seen Her?”.
From the album, she released the fifth single called “Tell Mama” on March 31, 2023.
It was written by Alma-Sofia Miettinen, Elvira Anderfjärd, and Oscar Görres who also produced the track.
ALMA said of the song, “'Tell Mama' is a song I started on the plane, just flying back to Helsinki from Los Angeles. I had to go back because of the pandemic. At the same time, I learned during the Corona period that during my career before that I had actually only ever lived for others. All I ever wanted was to make the people around me happy and proud, and I fell by the wayside. I was completely drained.”
- She continued, “For years I'd been in the music business, doing so many sessions and gigs - and then I made music that I thought other people would enjoy. It didn't have much to do with my taste at all. It went so far that I finally burned out completely: I no longer had a clear vision, I only ever paid attention to that everyone around me was proud and happy. I don't regret any of it, but so during that flight I realized it was now or never for me.”
She added, “I finally had to do something that fulfills me again. Really crazy how you can be at your peak when it comes to your career and still feel miserable. And it takes a lot of courage to go in a new direction. But I did it - and writing this song was the first step towards it. So I'm sharing my story with that, and most of all I want to encourage people to just do what they love. Your mother will always love you no matter what you do, as long as you are happy!”
The album comprises 13-track, produced by DECCO, ELVIRA, Fat Max Gsus and A Strut.
ALMA said of the album, “In Time Machine, I go back in time to explore the highlights and the lowlights of my life. This album’s key message is finding your own voice. Going back to the start on your own, knowing your worth and asking for more from life. Every song is like an honest conversation in my head. Sometimes with my family, sometimes with my partner, sometimes even with my old classmates. Sometimes the conversations are more painful and deeper, sometimes they are light and ironic. It’s honest, intense, and in-your-face.”
