The album boasts other fan favorites such as “Worst Behaviour” [feat. Tove Lo] and “Bad News Baby,” which has already amassed over 5.6 million global streams. Check out the full tracklisting below.
Punchy, punk-tinged pop flows effortlessly from the 23-year old’s fingertips. In just 3 years the highlighter-haired polymath has topped global charts with her incredible scream along hooks (who could forget earworm “I’m chasing high high high highs”) and irresistible melodies. “Chasing Highs” and “Karma” in particular reached Platinum status with “Dye My Hair” going Gold. She has written for the likes of Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Ray, Charli XCX, Tove Lo to name a few. It just goes to show that she’s no stranger to a hit – and certainly triumphs again with this one.
Everything but the stereotypical pop princess during that time ALMA has garnered fans the world over from Annie Mac and Miley Cyrus to Elton John and Dua Lipa who she worked with last summer in LA. Live she has toured extensively bringing punk and pop together in a not to be missed show that assaults all the senses. ALMA has just finished her month long tour with Tove Lo across the US.
A unique and talented writer ALMA is leading the charge on a new wave of female powerhouses that have something to say through their music. Engaged, forward thinking and opinionated she addresses issues from women’s rights to body positivity to sexuality to depression, drug use and anxiety head on. Notably, she recently co-wrote two songs on Miley Cyrus’ EP She Is Coming, including the female empowerment anthem ”Mother’s Daughter” and “Cattitude” ft. RuPaul as well as Charles Angel’s hit theme tune “Don’t Call Me Angel” which debuted at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart becoming Grande’s 20th top 20 song, Cyrus’ 14th and Del Rey’s 3rd.
Now on the cusp of releasing her highly anticipated debut album, 2020 is set to be an exciting year for the Finnish powerhouse.
