It feels like girl in red has been splashing across these digital pages for forever now, so it’s kinda crazy to think the Norwegian singer has yet to release a full-length album. That will soon change.
The project from singer-songwriter Marie Ulven this week has detailed her debut LP; it’s called if i could make it go quiet, no caps just like her moniker, and it’s out April 30 via AWAL. The album, self-written by girl in red and co-produced by Matias Tellez, features 11 tracks, including 2020 singles “Rue” and “midnight love,” as well as a new cut, yesterday’s thunder sparkle jam “Serotonin,” co-produced by Billie Eilish’s brother FINNEAS.
“if i could make it go quiet is an attempt to learn what it’s like to be human; to deal with the scariest parts of myself; to live with the pain of knowing i’m only flesh and bones; to be angry, broken and unforgiving yet still able to wear my heart on my sleeve; i’m shedding light on the darkest parts of my mind and i’m letting everyone in; if i could make it go quiet is me simply trying to understand what the fuck is going on,” says Ulven in a very girl in red-like way.
