FRESH: ‘Hungry Heart’ – Andreas Stone

Andreas Stone has a “Hungry Heart”

Swedish writer and performer Andreas Stone has enjoyed huge success since his debut single, “Save The Truth”, was released in 2017. He also co-wrote ”Too Late For Love” with John Lundvik, which won the 2019 Swedish Melodifestivalen and went on to represent the county at that year’s Eurovision Song Contest, coming fifth. Andreas has achieved number one’s in Sweden, Spain, Poland, Norway, Czech and Denmark and sold a staggering 26 million records to date.

His brand new single, “Hungry Heart”, has just been released, incredibly his TENTH of this year and the follow up to “Touch You”. “Hungry Heart” has an awesome electro-pop/dance beat that just builds and explodes by the time it reaches the chorus with enough energy and happiness to lift the spirits during these dark days. “Hungry Heart” is simply essential and a must listen, if only to rock out to and punch the sky with pride.

2020 has been quite a year for Andreas. In April he released “Live A Lie” together with RIVAL and EGZOD which has streamed over a million times already. In July ”If I Was Holding You” was nominated for the Hollywood Music In Media Awards in the Country category, while producer Christian Karlstrom remixed his collaboration with Duke, “Touch You”. Add to this, K-Pop sensations Oh My Girl’s single “Nontstop” streaming over 33 million times and it’s a wonder Andreas has found time to release so many of his own songs!

Andreas plays piano, guitar, bass and many other instruments. Born in 1981, he grew up in Arlöv, a small suburb to Malmö, Sweden. As a young child Andreas was determined to make music his life’s passion! He studied music in upper secondary school. He attended a gospel folk high school as a pianist, which ended with a three week long field study, playing throughout the afro American churches in Chicago, USA. Upon graduation, he attended the Malmö Musical University, with Pop/Rock as course focus, which after four and a half years landed him a bachelor’s degree.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
