Meet Robin Packalen
NORDIC STARS ROBIN PACKALEN AND ALEX MATTSON COLLABORATE ON A NEW SINGLE HARD TO LOVE, OUT NOW
SECOND HALF OF A TWO-PART EP RELEASING LATER THIS YEAR
Chart topping, platinum selling, pop singer Robin Packalen is back with a smash! Released today, “Hard To Love” is a collaboration with Alex Mattson, an EDM star who has wowed the Nordic and Baltic countries since the release of his multi-platinum hit “UFO” in 2016. “Hard To Love” is the first single from Robin’s EP “Rest In Beat AM” – to be released later this year. It is the second half of his EP duology, which together form an album with “Rest In Beat PM” which was released last December.
The captivating dance floor filler tells a story about how all the troubles in life can be quickly flipped on their head when the right person comes along. The theme is perfectly illustrated by Robin’s soulful and soaring voice and Alex’s addictive production. It will be accompanied by an exhilarating, dance-filled music video, directed by Sami Joensuu.
Robin describes the single’s message: ”The more you grow up, the more you face adversity. You slowly start to doubt everything with no reason – it’s about becoming more aware of the cruel world we’re living in. But when you find somebody to trust, you let go of all hesitation.”
