Astrid S reaches out to Philippine audience; releases new single "Breathe"

Award-winning singer and pop star Astrid S has unveiled her brand new single "Breathe". The track is her first of new music for 2017, and follows a breakthrough year for Astrid, in which her hit single - 'Hurts So Good - topped 120 million streams on Spotify alone.

"Breathe" was produced by Oscar Holter for Wolf Cousins (Tove Lo, Demin Lovato, Ellie Goulding) in Los Angeles and is available at all digital music outlets. The single surpassed 3 million streams within the first few days of its release.

The Norwegian pop star also released the official video via her socials where the video sees Astrid as part of a vigilante couple who commit a heist in a Tarantino-esque, action-packed short film format directed by Cherry Cobra Films - a Swedish duo consisting of directors Johanna Nyberg and Nathalie Hallman.

Astrid S says: "This is the biggest music video I've done yet! There was a big crew, a lot of equipment and effects, not to mention all the costumes and clothes! I think the video manages to capture the edge and sassiness of the song, with a good mix of serious and funny. I'm so excited to share it!"

She was once a contestant on the Norwegian version of Pop Idol 2013 where she placed fifth. This 20-year-old lady has seen unprecedented critical and commercial success in both her home country and across the globe. In addition to the streaming success for "Hurts So Good," the official music video recently hit 7M views as part of Astrid's self-titled debut EP.

Media outlets across the globe praised the EP and single starting with Wonderland Magazine calling "Hurts So Good" as "heartrending and euphoric" and Noisey dubbing the track "clearly excellent." The Guardian described Astrid as "waiting in the wings of global stardom" and Nylon labeled her "Norway's next great pop export."

"Breathe" is now out across all digital outlets and there's more to look forward to from her this year.
