Seinabo Sey's latest single is called "I Owe You Nothing," but the Swedish singer gives you a lot with it anyway. In both the song and accompanying video, premiering today on The FADER, Sey delivers determination draped in effortless cool. In the clip, directed by Sheila Johansson, Sey is in complete control, only bothering to stand to set a car on fire.
”I figured it’s time I stand up for myself and this is my best way of doing that," Sey said in an email. "I'm so looking forward to singing for you guys again."
The song was produced by MagnusTheMagnus (aka Magnus Lidehäll) and Sey's previous collaborators Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir, as well as her friend Isak Alverus. Along with the song's B-side, "Remember," which features Jacob Banks, this is her first new music in over two years, and will be followed by more later in the year. Watch the premiere of "I Owe You Nothing'" below.
