Rising Swedish pop act shy martin has today revealed her brand-new single wish i didn’t know you, as well as the track’s accompanying video, directed by shy herself, alongside her brother Hampus Hjellström. Speaking about the video, shy says:
‘We wanted to shoot the video for ‘wish i didn’t know you’ in the village in Sweden where we grew up as it has always been a special place for the both of us. I want to leave the storyline open to interpretation for whoever’s watching it’.
wish i didn’t know you is the first new music shy has released since her 2021 singles No Regrets and Feelings, the latter of which saw The Line of Best Fit describe shy as ‘one of pop’s brightest stars’. shy has an esteemed career as a songwriter, having previously written tracks for the likes of The Chainsmokers, Ellie Goulding, Jess Glyne and Astrid S that have seen her amass more than 3 billion streams on Spotify alone. Now though, shy is totally focused on writing music for herself, with wish i didn’t know you being the first in a series of new releases expected in the coming months. shy explains:
‘I have spent the last year and a half only focusing on my own music and on creating a safe creative space for myself. Luckily my brother pushed me to go back to how I first started writing – on my bed, on the guitar, about whatever I’m really feeling or going through at the moment. Writing these upcoming songs has been really important to me in a therapeutic way and I don’t think I’ve ever found more comfort in writing than I did last year. I’ve intentionally stayed in my own bubble to create more honest music that I can’t wait to share!’
shy is a participating member in Max Martin’s ‘Equalizer Project’ which seeks to further promote and celebrate women in the music industry, while she has also been part of Bebe Rexha’s ‘Women In Harmony’ events. shy’s brand-new single wish i didn’t know you is out now via The Orchard and she will be releasing further new music in the coming months.
