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.
