Listen to the song now here.Watch the official video here. The new song is the first single to be released from Nea's forthcoming debut album, TRANSPARENT, due out fall 2023.

Armed with a fresh sound rooted in the raw undertones of '90s grunge, seamlessly melded with Nea's signature pop sensibility, "A Lover Like Me" is a self-love anthem dripping with magnetic charisma and fearless grit. Written and produced by Nea and Daniel Ledinsky (Tove Lo, Shakira, Rihanna), Nea describes, “'A Lover Like Me' is one of those rare songs that just wrote itself. I had a lyric idea, Daniel played some chords and 2 hours later we had the song! I love the rawness of the vocals and the vibe, that there’s an edge to it.”

Stepping into 2023 with 800 million+ streams as a solo artist, today's new single marks a bold start to a year destined for massive growth for Nea. With her debut album slated for fall, Nea is also confirmed as an expert panelist alongside Carl Falk & Elias Kapari on Sweden's forthcoming Songland shoot-off, which debuts this spring.

First establishing herself as one of Sweden’s most prolific songwriters, penning songs for notable artists such as Zara Larsson, Felix Jaehn, Tinie Tempah, Tove Styrke, and Axwell, 2019 marked the beginning of a destined transition for the multifaceted creative. First debuting as an artist with single "Some Say," the track, along with its Felix Jaehn Remix, were certified diamond, platinum or gold in 21 countries, reached #1 on airplay in 7 countries and became the 9th most played track on European radio that year.
