Astrid S has today unveiled her video for brand new single ‘Think Before I Talk’.
Shot entirely in one take, the video follows Astrid as she performs the song to camera, moving through a backdrop of dreamlike, neon-drenched rooms. Directed by long-time Astrid collaborator Andreas Öhman, the video develops on the visual theme set by previous video ‘Such A Boy’, which he also directed.
Out now on Virgin EMI Records, new single ‘Think Before I Talk’ is the first release from Norway’s pop sensation Astrid S since her recent critically-acclaimed EP ‘Party’s Over’. The track has already seen over 7 million streams worldwide, and has been sitting in the global top 200 chart on Spotify since its release. It was written by Grammy-nominated songwriter Andrew Cedar and mixed by Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Tony Maserati.
This week also sees Astrid S embark on her first ever world tour, performing over 30 headline shows across North America, Europe and Australasia. As part of this tour, she will perform two highly-anticipated UK shows in October: at Manchester’s Gorilla on Monday 9th October, before playing at London’s legendary Heaven on Tuesday 10th October.

At 20 years of age, Astrid S has already become a household name in her home country of Norway and beyond. Born in Berkåk, a small Norwegian town with fewer than 1,000 inhabitants, Astrid began playing the piano when she was six and by sixteen she’d moved to Oslo to pursue her career in music. Fast forward to today and her music is streamed over a million times per day on Spotify, with a total of half a billion streams to date across the globe. Her single ‘Breathe’ – from recent EP ‘Party’s Over’ – was BBC Radio 1’s Tune of The Week, and has recently hit over 55 million streams worldwide, whilst the music video has over 1.7 million views on YouTube and counting. The single also hit number 1 on the Spotify charts in Astrid’s home country of Norway – knocking Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s ‘Despacito’ remix featuring Justin Bieber off the top spot! Astrid was awarded the Norwegian Grammy for ‘Breakthrough Artist of the Year’ last year, and has also been awarded ‘Best Norwegian Act’ at the MTV EMAs.
