Dagny recruits Steve Aoki for new single ‘Hit Your Heart’

It’s a long-time live favourite, apparently.

Norwegian pop artist Dagny has teamed up with superproducer Steve Aoki for new track ‘Hit Your Heart’.

“After watching ‘Hit You Heart’ become a fan’s favourite in our live set,” the singer explains, “I sent a demo of it to Steve and he immediately wanted to be involved in the production. I wanted it to feel strong and powerful and capture that energy that came upon both us and our audience whilst playing it live - and that’s exactly what Steve added. I’ve been so excited to release this track and I hope it hits people’s heart. Pun intended.”

Steve adds: “This collaboration came naturally I think to both of us. Her voice is so luscious and adaptable that I felt like I had a lot of musical freedom to produce something that would suit her vocals. She could fit into any genre, and that’s something I really admire about her.”
