“I’m so excited to share this song with the world! It was such an honor to be invited to write for Tom’s project in the first place, so I was just happy to be a part of the session. So, when we came up with ‘You Found Me’ and I instantly felt in my gut that this was something special, that just felt like the icing on the cake for me. I love this song and feel like the topline is very much my musical DNA and the production is Matoma’s!! So, it feels like a very natural and organic collab that I’m very proud to be a part of.” – SKAAR stated

“You Found Me” explores the concept of being saved by someone or something that brings color and joy back to a life where it became lost. SKAAR’s haunting vocals ensnare the listener with this tension: “I’ve been losing faith, so I just hide away in the darkest places over and over again.” The song then builds towards a euphoric release with Matoma’s melodic and explosive production.

“In the darkest hour, you return my colors ‘cause you found me.”

“I’ve spent most of my winter here in Norway, but also dreaming of the warm memories of the summers past – and wanted to present a sound and a vision that combined the beauty of these two worlds that transports the listener with a feeling of blissful escape. It’s a mix between the Nordic emotional beauty and the feel-good Ibiza vibes.

‘You Found Me’ is one of the first singles I wrote in my new studio in Oslo which is filled with beauty and magic from my childhood roots. Hilde (SKAAR) and I immediately connected and started exploring this concept of being saved by something or someone that restores everything good inside of you. I want people to feel that music can be their savior.” – Matoma explained
