In October of last year, Swedish artist Erik Hassle reintroduced himself. Before that, he took a break from the spotlight, explaining to us, “I stayed in Sweden for almost two years, I needed the time to catch up with myself. I started doing all of this when I was so young and life as an artist can feel a little bit isolated and I just felt a little bit like I needed to take care of my life, love, and relationships. I just needed to take it easy for a little while but I was writing all the time.”

He kicked off the comeback with “Talk About It,” one of the catchiest songs we’ve heard in a while, and he’s been back in Los Angeles and staying busy (he even wrote that Shakira/Rihanna song). Today, the product of his time off and all that writing comes together. Here is his Somebody’s Party EP. Listen below, and buy it here.
