Swedish soulstress Snoh Aalegra returns with her new single - Under The Influence

Written by 

LA based Swedish singer Snoh Aalegra releases her new single - ‘Under The Influence’ taken from her forthcoming mini-album ‘Don't Explain’.

Snoh AalegraUnder The Influence is an emotionally-charged two-stepper perfect for drawing your partner in close for a slow dance. You’ll be hard pushed to find a blog or website who doesn’t compare Snoh’s smokey, bluesy vocals to Amy Winehouse as this really is an apt comparison. In addition, the classic Roy Lichtenstein / Modesty Blaise styled pop cover art would have even made the late-great singer proud!

Produced by No I.D ‘Under The Influence’ also features John Mayer, who provides the lead guitar. No I.D. also worked with RZA on the SSMA nominated track "Emotional" and Common for "Bad Things”.  

Aalegra's Don't Explain - also features collaborations with James Fauntleroy and DJ Dahi - lands April 8 and is available for pre-order on iTunes here.

    Music is the product of more than just the notes and the words that fashion its outer shell. It also carries the artistic DNA of its creator, it speaks of their life journey, and it also soaks up something of the place that it is made in. It is probably the most natural thing in the world to write smooth and vibrant music if you look out of the window and see the azure blue of the Pacific Ocean or the sun-kissed beaches of the Mediterranean.

    Snoh Aalegra, however, is proof, if proof were needed, that the cooler Scandinavian climes and the rain-soaked London streets can also influence music in a positive way.
