‘Would You Lie’ is a collaboration that feels so natural you wonder how the two artists haven’t teamed up before. Alexander’s voice possesses the star quality and enticing pop appeal that first made him such a big hit on YouTube, whileSeeb’s love of big, insistent melodies and dynamite, dancefloor-friendly drops is the perfect vehicle for his talents. In fact, both artists share a skill for elevating melancholy moods into utterly uplifting songs.
Seeb commented, “One beautiful spring day at the end of May, in our hometown Oslo, we unexpectedly ran into Alex and Joki in our studio. They had started working on this song idea that we immediately liked. Alex called it ‘Would you lie’. Then when they had left for the day, we snuck into the studio, copied the recordings and started working on it. Then a few weeks later we had a finished version, dont think Alex even realized we had been doing anything until he heard it the next day. So much fun.
Alex has a unique and melancholic voice, a great tone that speaks to us in a way not many singers do, and has become yet another special friend on our musical journey”.
Alexander added, “I was traveling in Europe doing lots of writing, and at the very end of the trip, I had 2 days in Oslo. I went to the studio and started writing a song that felt pretty exciting called “would you lie”. I ended up running into Seeb at the studio and they loved it! A few weeks later, I was told they started working on it, and literally the next day they sent over basically the finished version. I love how organic this whole process was, and the mix between our sounds on the record is something super special”.
Seeb were formed after Simen Eriksud asked Espen Berg to produce his band. While they didn’t happen, the pair did hit it off and started working together as a production team before officially forming Seeb. Almost immediately things went stratospheric when their remix of Mike Posner’s ‘I Took A Pill In Ibiza’ helped it become one of the biggest hits of the decade – including four weeks at #1 in the UK, where it was certified 4 x Platinum. From there, Seeb were on a roll as they became the go-to remixers for countless major talents.
But Seeb also focused on their own original music too, leading to their 2021 debut album ‘Sad In Scandinavia’ as well as an accompanying remix package. Full of notable names such as Bastille, Dagny, Dan Caplen and Julie Bergen, the project is now approaching 500 million streams.
Hailing from Toronto, Alexander Stewart is one of the hottest new artists emerging today. He has broken into the top 20 Billboard charts in Canada and garnered well over 20 million streams with first single “Backwards”. His three subsequent singles “Echo,” ”When You Love Someone,” and “Back to You” released this year have already amassed 55 million combined with his catalogue boasting an enormous 165 million streams across all platforms, an incredibly impressive feat for an indie artist. He has toured with Lauren Spencer Smith and Benson Boone in 2022 and planning a headline tour in 2023. He will be performing at the iconic School Night in Los Angeles on November 21st.
