LÉON Releases New Song “Dirt”
Swedish singer-songwriter LÉON released a new song “Dirt” on November 10, 2023.
The song is the second single since the 2022 album “Circles”, following the release of “Pretty Boy” back in August.
The track was written and produced by Lotta Lindgren and Henrik Michelsen. The accompanying music video was directed by Natalie Sakstrup.
LÉON said of the song, “It's honestly the song I've been most excited to release in a while. It felt like a breath of fresh air to write this one. It's slightly different from what I've done in the past and it was so fun to tap into a world that feels so colorful and free to me. In many ways, it represents where my head has been the past year, which I think is one of the reasons I love it so much. "Dirt" is all about desire and leaning into what you really want. I was at a place where I felt a bit stuck, and I was searching for something different, so I really leaned into that for this song.”
- She continued, “I just really can't wait for people to hear it. I hope people dance to it, put it on while they are driving in their cars - I just can't wait to see how people feel about it (and the upcoming music video!)”
LÉON told PAPER about the video, “I hope people find it free and fun to watch. I just really wanted to feel like myself and I love to dance, even though I know I’m not the greatest at it. There was no planned choreography whatsoever, simply the idea of seeing what might happen on the day. It took about three takes before we found the right pace, but ahead of the shoot Natalie Sakstrup, who directed the video, already had the idea of making it a video where we’d capture more of how I move when I’m on stage. Since we started working together on my last tour, we know each other so well at this point. We tapped into the concept and it’s honestly one of the most fun videos I’ve ever made.”
