We have another new single and music video release from the incredible singer-songwriter Ina Wroldsen. This brand new song is titled “Remember Me” and follows up her previous track “Sea“. We’re hoping these continued releases are gearing up for a full-length album, or at least an EP – we can only hope.
Ina Wroldsen is best known for her songwriting skills, having written some of the biggest hits for some top names in the music industry, including The Saturday, Clean Bandit, INNA, Cover Drive, Pixie Lott, The Pussycat Dolls, Shontelle, and The Wanted. The list is endless and it just keeps growing. Not to mention the fact that she’s had global hits on featured tracks which we still hear today, such as “How Deep Is Your Love” by Calvin Harris & Disciples, “Places” by Martin Solveig, and “Breathe” by Jax Jones. Her solo hits haven’t lived up to her featured success, but emotional track “Strongest” did manage to chart well in her home country of Norway as well as hit top 20 in Denmark.
This brand new track, “Remember Me”, was written by Bård Mathias Bonsaksen, Ina Wroldsen, Matthew Holmes, and Philip Leigh. As for the music video, it was directed by Thor Brenne.

We never thought Ina Wroldsen could blow us away again and again, but gosh does she keep surprising us with every single song she releases. She has so out-done herself with “Remember Me” as she keeps to her dance-rhythm sound whilst adding infusions of pop and classical with the slightest hint of opera that stuns us. This is one artist who is just waiting to become a global sensation. No one is doing what Ina Wroldsen is doing right now, and with her killer vocals and brilliant songwriting skills, a flat-out unstoppable hit will have her name in lights – we really hope this song is the one as it deserves to break records around the globe.
Non-stop catchy this song won’t just stay with you for an hour or so, it won’t just stay with you for the rest of the day; this song will stay with you for the rest of the week. It’s strong, it’s powerful, and it is completely addicting. Lyrically, Ina Wroldsen sings to an ex-lover and how she is the “pinnacle of all the mistakes” that person made. It’s a haunting track and has a nightmare/horror tone to it, which was Ina Wroldsen’s whole thought process for this song.
According to an Instagram post, she said: “Remember Me is a song about being haunted. In my case I was being chased down by dreams that I tried to bury…thing about burying dreams though, is that they don’t die. Because Remember Me was based almost entirely on my sub conscious, I thought it fitting to use Nattmara as the character for the video. Nattmara is the nightmare.”

Following on a theme from her last music video, where “Sea” introduced us to The Nøkken, this music video introduces us to The Mare / Nattmara. A description follows on from the title screen saying: “A creature of old norse mythology. She comes in the night, reminding us that we can never separate ourselves from our actions. She pushes the air from our lungs and the real from our minds. Beware of the consequence.”
This is a pure narrative music video, as we watch a guy who is haunted by The Mare who gives him flashbacks of a woman who we presume he killed. It’s quite the disturbing music video but manages to really embody the song and all the viewers certainly understand who The Mare is, even if you haven’t heard of it before today – just like us.
“Remember Me” deserves a hell of a lot of recognition, it’s definitely one of our favourite songs right now. It is available to download and stream through Simco Limited as part of Syco Music.
