A few months after stunning us with the ubiquitously remixed “Younger,” Seinabo Sey returns with “Hard Time.” It’s a knock-out of an anthem, built on an infectious, circling beat (produced by Magnus Lidehäll of “Don’t Wait” fame) that lets Sey’s vocals take off. The track somehow sounds completely new, as if Sey dusted something off over in Sweden we’ve been waiting to hear all winter. It’s the balance in her vocals, equal amounts of measured sweetness and an almost brutal power, that really sets her apart. Hear for yourself and stream “Hard Time” below.
