Marie Dahlstrøm – Home With You (New Single)
Home With You
One of the more delicate, R&B-leaning cuts from the album, ‘Home With You’ features production from long-term collaborator Dan Diggas (known for his work with Mahalia), guitars from friend and collaborator Sipprell, and a talk-box section from DT Soul. The track is an honest, positive reflection on personal flaws. “I will accept your flaws / just the way that you’re accepting mine / No, I’m not really one to judge” Marie sings, atop of subtle electronic production and soothing piano chords.
“I wanted to write about flaws in a kind and positive way,” Marie explains. “I wanted to hone in on what makes us who we are. The absence of something in a person’s life, makes room for the presence of something else. ‘Home With You’ is a song about celebrating honesty and compassion in love, even if it isn’t always easy.”
Brought up on some of soul and R&B’s greats; recalling the likes of Edwyn Collins, Womack & Womack and Gloria Gaynor being on regular rotation in her family home in Roskilde, Dahlstrom also cites the discoveries of Dwele, Dire Straits, Erykah Badu, Kirk Franklin and Fleetwood Mac in her teenage years as key points of inspiration in her musical upbringing.
Moving to London 9 years ago – Dahlstrom is now well known for her warm, jazz-tinged, soulful R&B. Following previous releases with the likes of Tom Misch and Alfa Mist, the past 12 months have seen Marie writing and producing the songs that would eventually form the debut album ‘Like Sand’ – out May 22nd’.
Recorded between LA, Copenhagen and London – ‘Like Sand’ features collaborations with the likes of South London soul singer James Vickery, California based songwriter and producer Jeremy Passion, Brooklyn based singer/producer Elijah Fox, British guitarist Beau Diako – and more.
Previously supported and praised by the likes of Billboard, NYLON, Complex, and Wonderland Magazine, as well as radio airplay from BBC 1Xtra DJ’s Jamz Supernova, DJ Target, Toddla T and Rinse FM’s Jyoty, Marie has been patient with her career – carefully plotting and building towards her first full length body of work.
“Music is my identity,” says Marie. “It’s what I’m most proud of. I hope there will be something for everyone with these new songs, and I hope that people will find comfort, and maybe feel more of themselves whilst they listen.”
Marie Dahlstrom’s new single ‘Home With You’ is out now, released March 13th. Dahlstrom’s debut album ‘Like Sand’ is out May 22nd, 2020.
