Swedish Artist Cornelia Calls Out Inequality On New Single, “Birthright”

“Everyone should have the right to a future.”

Through her electronic melodies and soft harmonizing vocals, Swedish singer/musician Cornelia tells the story of the "universal need for purpose" on her new track, "Birthright." It's taken from her debut album, Balun, due out this June, and features side-eyed criticism of inequality in the current UK political climate: Mr Prime Minister said/ There'll be plenty jobs one day.

"Moving to London I quickly learned about maximized tuition fees, lack of job opportunities, skyrocketing house prices, bank frauds and broken promises from elected politicians," Cornelia told The FADER. "The young generation seemed to express a complete lack of trust for the future. It reminded me of a time as a teenager growing up in Sweden. Leaving college there were no jobs and I had left home at 16. I lived off tins and noodles and had no idea where I was going. Everyone should have the right to a future." Camp Mozart will release Balun on on June 15th, but you can preorder an "audio poster" to play all the songs through now.
