Alma celebrates the warm(er) weather with ‘Summer’

The Finnish pop star wrote the track in LA, she says.

It is, at least in this corner of the UK, a decidedly sunny day, and as if she could predict such things, Alma has chosen today to unveil new track, ‘Summer’.

As the Finnish singer explains, the track wasn’t written in her famously snowy home country, but the perennially-glowing City of Angels.

“Every winter lots of people get depressed because of the cold and the darkness - it’s called seasonal affective disorder / winter depression! Lots of Finnish people have this. I wrote this song in LA - it was my first day there and I was jet-lagged but I remember I was still feeling alive and just happy - probably because of the sun! My relationship wasn’t doing great at that time, I was stressed and depressed, so I wrote this song to my girlfriend… I think we’re all better humans in the summertime!’”

The track is the third shared from Alma’s forthcoming debut, ‘Have You Seen Her?’, released in April.
