No stranger to the music business, Rasmus Hagen is already a platinum selling singer/ songwriter and producer from Stockholm.
With over 120 million streams on Spotify alone, Hagen was the featured singer on John De Sohn’s hit single‘Love You Better’,while also working alongside a roster of talents like Andrelli, Urban Contact and iamsimon.
Written with Alfitude favourite Aron Blom, ‘Learn to Love’ features the vocals of emerging Dutch artist Maxine and touches on tearing down emotional walls built from a previous relationship, slowly opening up to giving and receiving love again.
It’s a song with a theme common to most of us, being that awkward time in a relationship when two people start to realise each other’s flaws. Delivered with a subtle sense of intensity and anxiety, this is Swedish power-pop at it’s finest.
“I’ve heard that there’s a second wind to every relationship, about a year and a half into it, when the infatuation settles and we start to see each other in all our flaws and imperfections. It’s about assessing the situation and, by doing that, then understanding that we’ve truly and madly fallen for the other person. Most of us did just fine before that other person ambled into our lives. But still somehow every atom in our body suddenly craves that other person to the point of it becoming an absolute necessity. To the point of it becoming water.”
