AceShowbiz - Zara Larsson has finally returned to the music industry. Kicking off the promotion of her upcoming third album, the Swedish singer officially released its lead single "Ruin My Life" on Wednesday, October 17. It was premiered live during a secret show in New York City last month.
Written by Michael Pollack and Stefan Johnson among others, the song finds Larsson singing about missing her former lover and begging him to come back to her. She doesn't even care if that ends up with him ruining her life because she loves him too much to even care.
"You set fire to my world/ Couldn't handle the heat/ Now I'm sleeping alone/ And I'm starting to freeze," she sings over thumping drums and catchy beat. "Baby, come bring me help/ Let it rain over me/ Baby come back to me."
Besides "Ruin My Life", the new album will include tracks "Don't Worry About Me" and "Wanna". It will be her first album in two years, following her 2015 record "So Good". It's unknown when the album will be released as it hasn't gotten a title.
Larsson recently opened up why she had not released any new music until now, saying on Instagram Stories, "I'm really anxious about my music because I want it to be perfect for you... and the production just isn't there 100 percent and I don't want to release anything half-a**ed."
"I feel like I've always been open about wanting to be commercially successful... [but] it's really hard to schedule a release when you're not a global superstar. I'm not f***ing Rihanna," she continued. "The more I wait, the more pressure I put on myself and it's making it harder to release something because now my expectations of myself are so high and I know the other expectations of me are high, too."
The "Lush Life" hitmaker concluded her lengthy post by revealing her "worst nightmare," and that is the thought of her fans not liking her new single.
