The Key to “A Good Life” According to Marie Dahlstrom
Danish, London based musician, producer and vocalist MARIE DAHLSTROM releases her highly anticipated second album ‘A Good Life’ via her own JFH Records label. The release of new album ‘A Good Life’ today arrives exactly three years to the day since the release of her debut album ‘Like Sand’ in 2020, and features collaborations with acts including Jay Prince, Kofi Stone, Cory McKenzie Tribbett and Delleile Ankrah.
Consistently proving she is one of the most essential voices in contemporary R&B, the release of ‘A Good Life’ on 22nd May marks 3 years to the day since her widely acclaimed debut album Like Sand was released. To celebrate the announcement, Dahlstrom has shared the album’s second taster and title track “A Good Life”.
Produced by south London producer and Young Poet/Ninja Tune signee Conor Albert, new single “A Good Life” exudes blissful positivity. Accompanied by warbling keys, soulful guitar passages and uplifting brass sections, “A Good Life” was written as an ode to Marie’s son and explores the wonders of the world from a child’s eyes.
“A Good Life is a song about the wonders of everyday life, if we choose to stay curious. These moments will eventually be what we remember, and become a part of our story. This song is for my son, and everything he’s already taught me.”Marie Dahlstrom
Adding more on what to expect from her upcoming second album, Dahlstrom continued:
“I hope that every album I make will convey a sense of honesty to it. This one is based on reflections from a few years of my life with many changes and adjustments. It’s an album about human interaction in all its complexity.”Marie Dahlstrom
Marie Dahlstrom contains multitudes, a thousand selves co-existing and contradicting at once. A singer-songwriter. A mother. A producer. A partner. “These different pockets of life also create friction,” she acknowledges.
The album is about dismantling the idea that your validity as an artist diminishes when it’s not the focal point of your life, that being a parent negates creativity. Marie went on to say:
“I’ve been figuring out where I belong, what I’m supposed to do and how I fit into all this – because I am so much more than an artist. When you have big dreams or goals and you see time being taken away from achieving them, and going towards something else – how do you make that a positive experience? There are always challenges, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good life. A Good Life is based on reflections from a few years of my life with many changes and adjustments. It’s an album about human interaction in all its complexity.”Marie Dahlstrom to New Lease Music
