Cast your minds back to January 2020... Feels weird right, like a daydream of a life before the so-called new normal hit. For 24-year-old Sigrid it meant being in LA working on the embryonic songs that would make up the hugely-anticipated follow-up to 2019's UK top 5 album, Sucker Punch, a firecracker of a debut that built on her BBC Sound of 2018 win and the top 10 success of the pulsating festivalanthem Strangers. After returning  to  Norway,  and  then  back  to  LA  for  more  experiments  in  pop  alchemy  in  March  2020,  the pandemic hit and suddenly America was a day away from closing its borders. Sigrid escaped back to Norway with the genesis of one very special song under her belt, the disco-ball-shaped Mirror, her glorious, stadium-sized comeback single. “It's definitely inspired by disco but also I grew up with bands like Muse and that really hard bass reminds me of them,” she says of the song's ground-shaking intro which, given she was one of  2019's  biggest  live  acts,  owning  Glastonbury  while  also  headlining  her  own  sold  out  UK  tour  and supporting the likes of George Ezra and Maroon 5, will  hopefully be heard vibrating out of a huge sound system in a field very soon. “It's a very live version of a pop song. It's heavy. I love that because I need to feel the bass in my chest when I'm singing.”Lyrically  Mirror  pulls  off  that  very  Sigrid  trick  of  zooming  in  on  the  personal  while  keeping  it  open  to interpretation. While its instantly addictive sky-scraping chorus of “I love who I see looking at me in the mirror” can be seen as a statement on body positivity, for Sigrid it was more about internal struggles after a  crazy  few  years  of  being  in  the  spotlight  eversince  she  announced  her  arrival  with  2017's  immaculate Don't Kill My Vibe.
