Scandi-pop sensation Sigrid continues to impress on her latest single "Strangers." The track is produced by Martin Sjolie who previously collaborated with the 21-year-old on her breakout hit "Don’t Kill My Vibe." Despite the upbeat tempo, "Strangers" is a sad song that has Sigrid expressing how she wants no part in a cinematic romance because it's a complete fabrication.

Sigrid told NME that the track is about "wanting something to be something that it’s not" in an interview with the publication. "A lot of people – especially people my age – want things to be perfect, and therefore you lie to yourself," she said. "For instance, you think, 'this romantic relationship is so good,” but then it turns out that it’s not. You just wanted it to be. It’s a really, really sad song."

She also mentioned that her favorite pop songs make you feel like crying on the dance floor, citing Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" and Lorde's "Green Light" as inspirations for her own music. Listen to this gem in the lyric video, below.
