Astrid S has gained over 1 billion streams with hit songs such as “Hurts So Good”, “Think Before I Talk” and “Such A Boy”.
The journey for Astrid towards superstardom is one of escape and destiny. She was born in the tiny Norwegian hamlet of Berkåk. ‘In the heart of Norway,’ she says, ‘quite literally.’ Music was her first love, soccer her second. She signed to Sony ATV Music Publishing as a songwriter that year. Astrid has since been honing her ear for a pop chorus and identifiable, genre-bending lyrics.
In 2018, Astrid sold out her Party’s Over World Tour with 32 shows in the US, UK and Europe before the release of her summer smash “Emotion”. Going strength to strength, Astrid ended the year by joining Years & Years on their UK tour, culminating in a show at London’s O2 Arena.
2019 kicked off with “Someone New”, alongside sold-out-shows in New York and Los Angeles, and It wasn’t long until Astrid joined Swedish superstar Zara Larsson on her US-tour throughout April, cumulating with the release of her huge, emotional single “The First One”.
Astrid now returns with the release of her brand new EP, “Trust Issues” on August 30th before she leaves for her sold-out ”Stripped Down Tour” across the US and Europe. The EP, released through Universal Music Norway consists of five tracks, including the brand new fan-favorites ”Doing To Me” and ”Trust Issues”.
Astrid recalls exactly what pop music made her feel like as a young girl in a small town. ‘The moment I put a Discman on I was in another world. It was magical.’ Now she is ready to translate that early metamorphosis for her own fans. ‘To give them a world to get lost in as well.’ She is ready to colonize pop music with her own indefatigable energy. ‘Now I feel ready to fly.’
