To commemorate her Scandinavian tour which starts today with fellow Swedish artist Tove Styrke, rising artist GRANT (aka Caroline Cederlöf) has released a stunning rendition of her tour mate’s single ‘Changed My Mind.’ Out on all digital platforms today, the single is accompanied by an official video, shot in the British coastal town of Margate, directed by Zoë Que and Heydon Prowse and features the burgeoning singer who truly makes the song her own with her powerful signature vocals.
GRANT explains, “I decided on ‘Changed My Mind’ because it has a great melody and great lyrics with a mixed message that I thought would be fun to play around with. I stripped the song to its melody and started building it from scratch. I came up with the idea of having rhythmic strings as a theme for the whole production and took it from there. The lyrics were my way in to make it my own. Tove’s version is playful, so I went for the more desperate and brittle. I think both of us express some degree of irony as well, I like that in pop song. I had so much fun making it.”
“I’m such a fan of covers. And honestly, it’s humbling to have somebody cover one of your songs.” Tove Stryrke comments on the song. “It made me think of ”Changed My Mind” in a completely different way than I did before. I love GRANT for doing what she did with the song, giving me that. We´re gonna have some much fun touring together!”
