  • I have used Euro Sulution exclusively for my bigger projects this year as I see a much better spread and activity than a normal DJs-only promo. Can definitely recommend them for top UK results and very detailed frequent reports on activity.

7 Years

Release date: TBC Label: Warner Brothers



Danish artist Lukas Graham’s track ‘7 Years’ has captured the imagination of fans the world over, and has grown organically to the extent that it has already been played over 111 million times on Spotify. Meanwhile, its two official videos are now approaching 9 million views on YouTube, and he also made a breakthrough in the Stateswith a performance on Conan which fans voted as their favourite musical performance of 2015with an overwhelming 98% of the vote.

Now building momentum here with over 4 million UK Spotify streams, ‘7 Years’ is set to impact on March 4th.

Building from its stripped-back piano and vocal introduction into a powerful chorus, ‘7 Years’ is a song in which Graham tells the emotional story of his life to date and his hopes for the future. He draws parallels between his own experiences at different times in his life and those of his father.

“I couldn’t go any further than 60 because my father died at 61,” he explains. “I need to pass it to believe it. It’s a song about growing older. I’m also coming to a realisation that being a father is the most important thing. My biggest dream is not to be some negative old dude, but to have my kids’ friends say, ‘You’re going to visit your dad? Say hi! He’s awesome.’ I had a perfect father.”

Lukas Graham hails from Christiania, an autonomous, creatively-focused community in theDanish capital of Copenhagen. There are no cars, streetlights, or police. A personal toilet and running water were considered luxuries in the early nineties. Dogs roam the cobblestone streets without leashes, and plumes of smoke billow out of the windows. However, people are happy, and they help each other out. Christiania is why Graham makes the music that he does. It’s why he is who he is.

Raised on a soundtrack of The BeatlesThe Rolling StonesGregory IsaacsJames BrownAl Greenand The Prodigy, and particularly inspired by DrDre and Irish folk music from his father’s roots, Graham describes his music as “Folk music and classical mixed with soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and rap… We get down and dirty, and we talk about all the little things.”

After spending six months in Buenos Aires to clear his head and get away from the darker side of his hometown, Lukas brought that sound back to Christiania in 2010 where he joined forces with his writing team Future Animals. Writing lyrics first and telling stories, the style felt alive. It defined his 2012 self-titled first full-length album, which would go quadruple-platinum in Denmark and yield three smash hit singles: ‘Drunk In The Morning’ and ‘Better Than Yourself’ would go #1 and‘Ordinary Things’ peaked at #2.

That translated to the rest of Europe. In Germany‘Drunk In The Morning’ became a staple and reached #1 on iTunes‘Happy Home’ would give him his third number one in Denmark in 2014and went multi-platinum in Norway and Sweden. Also known for a phenomenal live show, he’d go on to play countless sold out shows and earn festival main stage spots alongside his “boys” in the band – Mark “Lovestick” FalgrenMagnús “Magnúm” Larsson and Kasper Daugaard – becoming the most popular live act in Denmark.
