I wonder how miffed Tove Styrke was when the Swedish pop artist released her first songs a few years ago and tons of people, including myself, kept typing her name wrong. I felt sheepish once I found out my mistake, but I must confess I was glad I wasn’t the only one to write “Stryke” rather than “Styrke”. It’s been a long time since then, and Tove Styrke has become a well loved artist in pop, particularly after songs like Say My Name and Mistakes took off. Come Friday, she’ll be releasing her new album Sway, whose title track is a polished and refined aria. Styrke says of the balmy traipsing, dulcet marching anthem: 

“I love Sway so much! It brings me back to late summer nights in Stockholm when it never really gets dark and things just fall in to place and happen. You know those nights when tomorrow doesn’t exist and nothing in your past either for that matter. Everything is just now, and right now everything is just good. You’re free. That’s what this song is to me.” Tove Styrke toured with Lorde this spring, and she’ll be joining Katy Perry as direct support on a European run set to kick off on May 23rd.
