Winner of the prestigious BBC Sound of 2018 — a U.K. award that has gone to Adele, Haim and Sam Smith — Norwegian native Sigrid gained global recognition covering Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” for last year’s “Justice League” soundtrack. “It was equally challenging and easy,” she says. “You don’t want to mess up such a great song.” Sigrid’s already achieved worldwide recognition with songs like “Don’t Kill My Vibe” and “Strangers,” releasing a pair of EPS on Island Records and a full-length debut in the works. “I thought there was some potential in my music,” she says. “But what I was dreaming about and what’s happening now are two completely different things. It’s really very cool.” An anthem for female self-empowerment in the #Metoo age, “Don’t Kill My Vibe” finds Sigrid lashing back at a pair of older male producers who belittled her in the studio. “I’m happy I got something good out of something bad,” she says.
