Alice Merton Shares “Hero”

Today, Alice Merton returns with a two-track single entitled “Hero/Island,” via Mom + Pop Music.

“Everything I felt in the last year was summed up in the first two sentences of the song,” Alice said of “Hero.” “It’s about the conflict of wanting something so bad, but realizing you just don’t have the strength to fight for it anymore. It talks about the discrepancy of wanting to be someone’s everything, and at the same time wishing they meant nothing to you.”

She continued, “Island’ acknowledges the struggle and desire to survive together, while ‘Hero’ calls a ceasefire and waves a flag to announce its surrender.”
