Sigrid and Brits Rising Star winner Griff have teamed up for an electrifying collaborative single, “Head On Fire.” The two began teasing a collaboration back in December.
The link up came about after the pair connected online during the pandemic and then later met in person – something that led to a blossoming friendship and creative partnership between the two.
Describing how the pair first connected, Sigrid said: “Griff and I met sharing a pizza at the Rueben Selby show at Fashion Week in London…We went to the studio a while later and just had a day of talking about life, before writing ‘Head On Fire’.”
Of the song, Sigrid added: “It’s about that feeling when you meet someone who just flips everything upside down and you can’t focus on anything else but that person. [Griff’s] just lovely, and it’s been so much fun working with her.”
Griff added: “I’ve looked up to Sigrid so much, especially as a young girl who broke through making powerful, credible pop music. So I was excited to hear she wanted to write. We hung out and made ‘Head On Fire’, this really fun, feel-good song, and I’m excited for the world to finally hear us on a track together.”
Back in November, Sigrid shared a festive holiday version of her beloved song, “Home To You (This Christmas).” The original – an ode to her hometown and family – soared to No.2 on the iTunes UK charts after it soundtracked the 2021 Olympics BBC highlights.
“‘Home To You (Christmas)’ has always had a Christmas spirit since we wrote it. It’s about my hometown and the house I grew up in with my family. I always go back for Christmas, so it felt natural to make a Christmas version. I hope it’ll give some cozy vibes when it’s getting darker outside,” says Sigrid.
