When she released her debut album, Love in the Milky Way, in 2018, Swedish singer and songwriter Sarah Klang grabbed everyone’s attention. Listeners were drawn to the way she was able to write autobiographically, intricately weaving details about her own experiences into her songs. Over the years, Sarah’s talents brought her to win the Swedish Grammy for Best Album twice and earn three Top 5 albums, successfully earning mass acclaim across outlets like i-D and Rolling Stone in the process. Telling her story simply works for her, and now that she is experiencing life through the lens of motherhood, Sarah is ready to release plenty of new material inspired by the process.
Following the release of “Mercedes,” which described Sarah’s dreams for her baby’s future, she continues to open up about motherhood with “Magic Stone.” Containing a chugging beat, lurching bass, and mystical sounds of the tambourine and piano, “Magic Stone” captures the infinite love she feels for her baby. With soulful vocals that absolutely soar at all the right moments, Sarah sings, “No, this feels divine / I wanna scream it / Shout it out all the time” and “How could she shine so bright that it hurts? / She’s like a fire out in the summer woods,” absolutely smitten. You can listen to it below.
Giving us more details behind “Magic Stone” and about the love she has for her daughter, Sarah explains,
“Seeing myself in her and also discovering myself through her…it was an inextricable great love.”
We absolutely feel the beauty and power of this love when listening to the words.
