Dagny Announces New Mini-Album “ELLE”, Shares New Song “Ray-Bans”
Norwegian singer-songwriter Dagny Norvoll Sandvik, aka Dagny has announced her mini-album “ELLE” will be released later this year.
The album is the first part of a mini-album trilogy and comprises 8-track.
From the album, she unveiled the third single called “Ray-Bans” on September 8, 2023, following “Heartbreak In The Making” and “Same Again (For Love)”.
The track was written by Dagny Norvoll Sandvik, Tyler Spry, and Maureen McDonald. Produced by Tyler Spry, Simon Oscroft, and Oliver Lundström.
Dagny said of the song, “Inspired by the 90s melodic and melancholic pop; Ray-Bans offers a different mood and shows a slightly more vulnerable side than some of my previous music. I hope it can soundtrack the melancholia of the autumn, for those who might need it.”
- The new album is her first body of work in three years since the 2020 debut album “Strangers / Lovers”.
Dagny said of the album, “I’ve always been a bit nonchalant about the concept of a ‘difficult second record’, but I had to eat my words a little here. I didn’t want to write the same album over again, but finding new things to inspire me musically and personally - turned out to be more challenging than first expected.”
She continued, “Having experimented with a variety of sounds, emotions and subjects, I had all these songs that meant something to me, but I needed to find a way to put them all together in an album. Not wanting to limit myself creatively or emotionally, I started playing around with the concept of different alter egos or amplified versions of myself, as ways of organising the songs.”
She added, “I’ve never been one to over-share personal details, so telling stories (some personal, some not) through characters like ELLE felt like an exciting way to get my thoughts, emotions & experiences into new songs.”
