Alan Walker has achieved remarkable success worldwide with his latest single ”Faded”. Precisely six months after its release Walker returns with the dance pop track “Sing Me To Sleep”. The title is sweet, but the theme is far from a lullaby. Iselin Solheim tells with her dramatic vocals the story about longing for a safe place in a world in constant movement. The video is shot in Hong Kong and takes you on a mission throughout the city.
“Wait a second, let me catch my breath.
Remind me how it feels to hear your voice.
Your lips are moving, I can’t hear a thing.
Living life as if we had a choice.”
”I´m so happy to finally release ”Sing Me To Sleep”. Melodies are more or less everything to me as a producer, and I´m very proud of what the team and I have put together in the studio. We have been working on this track for quite some time now, and I’m absolutely thrilled with the final result. I really hope my fans like this song as much as I do!” – Alan Walker
