Albin lee Meldau

With over 21 million streams on Spotify under his belt, Albin Lee Meldau has released “Persistence” the propulsive lead single from his forthcoming Bloodshot EP, an impressive 5-song display of Albin’s deeply affecting songwriting and arrestingly soulful voice, released July 21on Astralwerks/Caroline International.

2017 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year for Albin, who hails from Gothenburg, Sweden, the son of a Swedish jazz singer mother and a British punk rocker father. In March, NPR Music named him one of their must-see artists at SXSW and premiered his powerful video for “Lou Lou”, the startling track that hit the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral 50 chart in five countries. Albin was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2017 Grammis (Swedish Grammy Awards) and won the 2016 Anchor Award, an international competition hosted by the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany that seeks out the best new emerging talent. He was selected by a jury that included producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie) who sang Albin’s praises in presenting him the award: “Something is pouring out of his heart and soul when he sings.”
