Platinum-selling Swedish artist Rasmus Hagen has released his latest track, “Learn to Love,” featuring Dutch artist Maxine. The track is a waterfall of emotion and amorous melodies capturing the power of finding love again. After releasing his debut album in February, Hagen rose to the ranks with a platinum score in just six months. Hagen shares his inspiration for music, explaining, “Since I started the Rasmus Hagen project, I’ve always been very inspired by pop singer/songwriters like Ed Sheeran, Lauv and John Mayer, Julia Michaels etc. I’ve always tried to really imitate sounds from artists like these but every time the final result ends up sounding completely different. Soundwise for my new song ‘Learn To Love,’ I think I strived for a blend between a Julia Michaels song and an Ed Sheeran ballad.” The song translates love through the production with the beating heart of drums, building pop synths and the piano switching from delicate motifs to pulsing chords doused in energy and romance. The dynamics switch into a calmer mode before Maxine’s voice takes your breath away with her gentle tone before they both sing together with goosebump-inducing harmonies and passion. This is certainly a track you want to add to your romantic playlists.
