Sigrid Switches It Up With Piano Ballad “I Don’t Want To Know”
Sigrid began 2017 as One To Watch thanks to viral sensation “Don’t Kill My Vibe” and ended the year as a veritable pop star when “Strangers” landed in the UK top 10. The 21-year-old takes a break from the electro-pop of her breakthrough singles on “I Don’t Want To Know,” a stripped-back piano ballad that debuted today (March 27) as Zane Lowe’s World Record. “I know you have your good side, I know you have,” she sings of an ex-boyfriend. “Even at your worst, you’re not so bad.” This is where it gets really heartbreaking. “But when you had the choice, you chose someone else.”
“It’s definitely different than what I’ve been releasing before but I think this one shows even more what type of music that I love,” Sigrid told Beats 1. What inspired her? “To be honest maybe War On Drugs, I’ve been listening a lot to them for the past one or two years, so that has influenced me,” she revealed. “Also it doesn’t sound like Fleetwood Mac at all but definitely the songwriting maybe, I don’t know. Lots of those things have inspired me a lot for this song.” As for her debut LP, we’ll just have to wait. “Still working on it.”
