Last week RCA Records announced the signing of Norwegian producer/songwriter team Stargate, comprised of Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen.
That was quickly followed by the release of their debut single as a recording artist entitled “Waterfall” featuring P!nk and Sia everywhere globally, Friday, March 10th.
Stargate´s relationship with Sia began when they together wrote “Diamonds” for Rihanna. For Stargate’s “Waterfall,” Sia brought P!nk on board, and the two inspired each other to reach new heights on the emotional, dancehall-infused debut single.
“Waterfall” was co-written by Stargate, Sia, Diplo, and Jr. Blender.
Stargate has been previously known for their work ing songwriting and production for superstars Beyoncé, Rihanna and Coldplay to name a few, and will feature some of their favorite artists on their forthcoming music.
As lifelong fans of American popular culture, Stargate has created their own sound drawing equal inspiration from hip hop, electronic music and classic Scandinavian songwriting. They´ve been early pioneers in erasing the boundaries between electronic dance music and hip hop, and have become a mainstay of today’s worldwide musical landscape.
LA-based Stargate will surprise, excite and inspire both existing and new fans through their own new forthcoming music, which will feature new, up and coming artists, as well as some of today’s biggest superstars.
