Norway's Isabelle Eberdean has served up an impressive slice of R&B-pop with her stunning debut single, 'Focus on You'.

Influenced by the soulful sounds of the greats Aretha Franklin and Roberta Flack, Eberdean not only pays homage to those before her, but showcases her own signature vocal style, topped off with flawlessly-executed production by Marius Elfstedt (Selmer, Mall Girl, Henrik Felipe).

Speaking of the personal nature of the track, Eberdean said: “The song is about choosing to focus on the person you love, after perhaps taking them for granted. It’s then you just appreciate them for exactly the way they are.”

One to watch, Eberdean is set to release her debut EP in June, and the singer-songwriter will play Trondheim Calling 2021 in her home city.

‘Focus on You’ is out now via Monstera Records.
