KEiiNO’s Tom Hugo Releases Optimistic Single ‘Royal’ From His Upcoming ‘Eden’ Collection

Norwegian pop heartthrob and one third of KEiiNO, Tom Hugo, returns with a new solo single – the second taste of an upcoming collection of standalone tracks, Eden. The latest cut is Royal a hopeful, breezy autobiographical number produced by Tom that sees him co-write with Alexander Nyborg Olsson.

On his upcoming collection, Tom shared: “Isolated in the sleepy hometown of mine in Norway during the pandemic, I spent some of the extra time at hand writing a collection of songs inspired by stories from our own and other LBGTQ+ persons’ lives. As I come from a pretty conservative part of the country it’s common that anyone different from the majority can still be seen as ‘outcasts’. I wanted to write songs which normalise being different, and shine a light on anyone struggling with fitting in.”

Tom expands: “My mission has always been to use my voice in contributing to a world more open for diversity, and I believe the best way is often to treat what’s “different” as the most natural thing in the world. So all the songs for this project are written so they can be relatable to most people, even though the pronouns might not always be as what’s expected.”

Tom previously released Stuck in the Middle of Nowhere which is also expected to feature on the singer’s upcoming project Eden.

The singer continues to operate at full force with KEiiNO amidst these release, the trio releasing powerhouse number RITMA last month and participating in Liverpool’s Eurovision festivities in May.
