Joel Malka – “Tomorrow Forever” lyric video starring Hanna Larsson
“I don’t know how many times I’ve called and told you everything will be alright. Like really, I can see it now, everything will be alright, yeah. I’m talking in my sleep, I need your hand here on my chest. Just say I’ll be alright like you really believe it now. Everything will be alright, say it with me. This time tomorrow, everything will be different.” – lyrics

“It’s about this constant chase for something better. I wanted to write about longing, how it’s such a double-edged feeling. It can be comforting and hopeful in one circumstance, then desperate and frustrating in another.” – Joel Malka explained
The 10-track project features Swedish soul queen, Janice, as well as London-based R&B starlet, Aida Lae. Filled with introspective and personal storytelling, the lyrical themes on “Tomorrow Forever” mainly focus on a pursuit of the unrealized and the unattainable.

The album comes after a lead-up of singles including “Monte Carlo” and “Bless You,” and concludes a busy year for the artist.

Joel Malka was born in Gothenburg, Sweden, where he picked up the violin at an early age through a municipal project and developed an almost obsessive passion for music. As his parents regularly took him to the local library, Joel explored all the records in the music department meticulously. He was eager to learn about the songs that moved him so greatly. He described Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as his first English teachers. Also, he found early musical heroes in Kanye West and Miri Ben-Ari with “The College Dropout.”
Having always found communicating easiest through art, the multidisciplinary has developed a unique ability to give unfiltered looks into his world with a pop sensibility. Today, Malka’s distinct sound, blending R&B influences with dreamy Scandinavian melancholy, has caught the attention of critically acclaimed artists worldwide. This has led to Malka dividing his time between his own artistry, and writing and producing for artists such as Masego, Fousheé, and Sabrina Claudio. Also, he has achieved domestic chart success producing for Swedish artists.
