Alice Merton announces new EP, shares new single/video ‘pick me up’

After making a triumphant return with the dark-pop and introspective intensity of the recent single ‘run away girl’, Alice Merton returns to share her brand new single ‘pick me up’. It’s the latest track to preview the brand new HERON EP, set to release on April 12.

The punchy groove in ‘pick me up’ provides a sassy strut of a rhythm to heighten the fun factor of of the track, which brings throwback early 2000s pop sonics bounding into the present day. Alice co-wrote and co-produced the track with the Grammy-nominated Jonny Coffer (Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Ellie Goulding).

Alice says, “Sometimes relying on our own strength to help us get out of a rut isn’t enough, we need help from the outside: from our friends and family, people we love and trust. “pick me up” talks about exactly that situation. Asking the question: if you can’t get up any more in the morning, will your friends still be by your side to help you out? Will they be the feet that drag you out of bed in the morning? Will they be the hands that feed you when you’ve lost your appetite for life? The paths laid out for us aren’t always easy, but it gives me relief to know that I have people by my side to help, and that I can be that person for someone else too.”

‘pick me up’ is released alongside a self-directed video, which was shot in South Africa by Alice’s trusted DOP and regular collaborator Elias Köhler.
