Emmelie de Forest is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Randers, Denmark. Not too long ago, she released a dazzling disco-pop tune, entitled, “Typical Love Song,” a refreshing interpellation of Alphaville’s “Big In Japan” single via Day In Day Out (a division of Cosmos Music).

“This song came to me in a very unexpected way, as with most things in life. An idea about making an interpolation of Alphaville’s ‘80s hit song, ‘Big In Japan,’ came to life by a publisher I’ve worked with in the past. I was so lucky to write this song with three incredibly talented songwriters and Alphaville absolutely loved it! So with their blessing, we finished and recorded it. We used the chorus melody from ‘Big In Japan,’ but all the lyrics are new as well as all brand new melodies for the intro, verses, pre, and outro.” – Emmelie de Forest explained
‘Typical Love Song’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and infectious chorus melodies. The radio-friendly tune possesses groovy instrumentation flavored with electro-dance and disco-pop elements. Furthermore, “Typical Love Song” serves as an appetizing taste of what’s to come from Emmelie de Forest in the near future as she continues to release extraordinary new music.
“There was a time, I didn’t know the answer was you.”
“I love this way of using something old and mixing it with something new. I think it’s a tendency we’ve seen a lot these last few years and I believe it will continue. There are only 12 notes you can use to write a song and there’s so much amazing music out there that the younger generations might not know about. So instead of doing the traditional thing of making a cover, I think it’s great to use something that’s already there and write and create something new on top of it.” – Emmelie de Forest explained
