Norwegian pop singer-songwriter Dagny has just announced the release date for her much-anticipated, two-part debut album, Strangers / Lovers. It will arrive on October 2 via her own label Little Daggers Records. Alongside the announcement, the artist has shared a new single, “It’s Only A Heartbreak”, which is the first single on the album’s Side-B (its Side-A arrived back in May, led by the singles “Somebody” and “Come Over”).
About the dynamic, synth-driven pop song, Dagny says: “‘It’s Only A Heartbreak is actually partly inspired by the classic movie ‘Casablanca’ from 1942, and Humphrey Bogart’s famous quote: ‘Here’s looking at you, kid’. Like the movie, the song is about knowing that you will never get someone back, but you can secretly still look at, and admire, that certain someone. The song carries a nonchalant expression, but the undertone makes it pretty obvious that you’re not over that person yet.”
