Alice Merton Returns With New Song “Vertigo”
- German-Canadian-British singer-songwriter Alice Merton returned with a new song “Vertigo” along with a music video on April 9, 2021.
It is her first single since the 2019 debut album “Mint”. Alice Merton shared on social media, “It's been such a long time since I've released music, but I wanted to take the time to really create music I love, rather than rush something that I'm not 100 percent happy with. This year will be a year full of music and I can't wait to share the next chapter with you guys! 😍”
The track was written and produced by Alice Merton and Stephen 'Koz' Kozmeniuk. The video was directed by Anuk Rohde.
“'Vertigo' was the first song I had written, where I thought 'OK, now I'm actually writing for the next album,'” she told Rolling Stone. “For the first time in a while, I felt excited to have written a song that I couldn't wait to perform live. It basically came about after Koz and I had talked about what it's like living in Berlin, the very different club scene, and my anxiety when it came to going out and being in big crowds and small spaces. I casually described a club night, where I felt out of place, and the feeling of vertigo took over. We both felt it would be fun to play around with this idea and create a dark atmosphere, supported by a driving rhythm and an almost hypnotic guitar riff.”
