Erik Hassle - "Stay"

Erik Hassle, following his massive 2009 Swedish smash "Hurtful" and underrated debut album Pieces, is back with a more stripped-back and emotionally-honest sound.

"Stay" marks the lead single from Erik's forthcoming second studio album due out by late spring. The song is not a conventional hit by any means but I do not think that's what Erik was aiming for when he wrote it. With a haunting piano melody, evocative lyrics, and heartfelt delivery, "Stay" is a devastatingly sincere track that finds Erik at his most vulnerable — and he's never sounded better. 

Although Erik never reached the UK and US success he was slated to achieve with his massive record deals, here's hoping the world will take notice the second time around. This talent needs to be heard.
