‘So Wrong’ is the synth-laden single from DENA featuring the effortlessly smooth vocals of Canadian indie-crooner Sean Nicholas Savage. The track comes with the announcement of brand new album ‘If It’s Written’, due to be released September 14th, 2018 via Mansions and Millions. Inviting friends to collaborate on her very own terms, Dena created her own universe: features also include collaborations with Filipino cool cats Eyedress & Rhxanders, Berlin-based Argentinian singer Pictorial Candi and longtime collaborator and friend Erlend Øye. Get a feel for the upcoming album below with ‘So Wrong’.
“I wrote “So Wrong” after a flight, returning to Berlin from New York, after recording my EP “Trust”. A friend I work with there, SUM / ODD sent me the instrumental and I fell in love with the rhodes- chords and minimal vibe. It’s a song I wrote more as an ode to a place, as to a person, it’s about (be)longing and missing and not having. During that time I had met Sean in Berlin and immediately thought it would be beautiful if he would contribute to it, and I’m so glad he felt the tune and put his space-y magic on top of the music.” – DENA
Fittingly, telecommunication, computers, smartphones, and all those gadgets were not only tools to produce the songs on ‘If It’s Written’, but also a major theme in Dena’s writing. “We’re all woven into one big text message”, she muses, “the album is about us and communication.”
