As she prepares for the release of her debut album, Danish artist Marie Dahlstrom teases fans with a taste of the forthcoming project. Her latest single “A Loveletter – An Improvisation” is a delicate declaration of love and tells the tale of woman completely consumed by her newfound flame. Over a track composed by both Dahlstrom and South London producer/multi-instrumentalist Conor Albert, she notes her own self-awareness and appreciation for the patience shown by her lover singing, “Every day I’m learning more about myself and the truth / Very different from what I knew / ‘Cause you don’t hesitate when I’m making mistakes / And I know that it's coming from a good place so I’ll do right.”
The London-based beauty describes the ballad as a “raw reflection” upon her love for her someone special. She explains, “My boyfriend was away, in LA actually, when I wrote it, and I remember missing him. That day I had a session with Conor and I started the little piano theme on my keyboard, and Conor then began building the instrumental around it. After he left, I just turned on the mic, and sang whatever came to mind – no prewritten lyrics or melodies – which is why I called it 'A Loveletter – An Improvisation.'” In terms of her creative process for further developing the deeply personal track, she says, “I feel that emotion informs melody. I like the idea that someone should be able to feel what a song is about, without listening to the words. For me, melody always comes before words, and words often write themselves, on the right days. That’s my cue that I’ve made a good song. It feels easy and purposeful.”
