Louien shares new single ‘Second Best’

Norwegian indie-folk act Louien has shared new single ‘Second Best’, the second cut to be shared from her forthcoming EP Figure Me Out.

We last heard from Louien in the summer of 2021 when she shared her highly-acclaimed, liberating EP No Tomorrow. An attempt to write from a less serious perspective, it was the antidote to her 2019 debut album None of My Words which dealt with the trauma left behind by her father’s death. Out September 16 via Jansen Records, Figure Me Out is in many ways a sequel to last year’s No Tomorrow.

Her new single, ‘Second Best’, showcases Louien’s truly arresting vocal abilities. It speaks of the journey Louien has taken towards accepting her own emotions. Of the song, Louien says “I grew up learning that some emotions are good and some bad. Later in life I’ve learned that emotions are emotions, and that they only become dangerous when we label them as such and let them scare us. This song came from my process of understanding this, and from meeting people who’d been taught that it’s safe to be emotional from a young age.”
