Today she unveils the title track of her upcoming album „Whatever“, due out on May 24th, 2024. The single a collaboration with the pop punk band 2 FAR OUT and was written by Felin, Palle Hammarlund, John Strömberg and 2 FAR OUT’s lead singer Efraim Leo. Watch the music video for „Whatever“ here:

FELIN comments: „’Whatever’ tells the story of a destructive relationship, where passion and devotion collide with the harsh realities of toxicity, pain and mortality. Sometimes the love story just isn’t like in the movies, even if you would want it to be, you know. The song was originally written for FELIN, but when it was done it just felt like it was meant to be a duet. ‘Whatever’ is an energetic pop punk track and I’m so happy that the rising pop punk stars in 2 FAR OUT wanted to join in on the track.“

From her childhood piano lessons to forming a band as a teenager, Blom has decades of writing experience. The Blondie records her dad played for her remain a seminal source of inspiration, as is the irrepressible style and performances of Debbie Harry.

Growing up in rural Finland, her artistic journey eventually led her to Los Angeles, via Stockholm, Sweden. As FELIN she combines pop melodies with a punk rock energy and has performed on the German tv show Rockpalast, as well as festivals around Europe – including The Great Escape, Way Out West and Liverpool Soundcity. Recently she has supported Royal Republic on their tour across Sweden and also opened for Normandie in Stockholm.

FELIN is a strong advocate for equality, a recurring theme clearly heard in her music. She blends strong lyrical and musical ideas with visuals meant to evoke an equally strong reaction.

In 2023 FELIN released the singles “STFU (Shut The F**k Up)”, “Sick” and “Worst Regret”. The latter made its way onto playlists such as Spotify’s New Music Friday and Made in Sweden. “Worst Regret” was also on A-rotation on the Swedish radio channel Pirate Rock and “STFU (Shut the F**K Up)” has been aired on national radio in Sweden. In February 2024, FELIN followed up the success by releasing „Don’t Tell Me What To Do“, a feminist party anthem with a powerful arena chorus.

All songs are included on the upcoming album „Whatever“, which will be released on May 24th, 2024. The album marks FELIN’s third full-length release and contains a total of nine songs, including „Rather Go To Hell“ feat. Filippa Nässil from Thundermother.
