Wanna Know You is the new single from Axel Jansson, described as Bruce Springsteen meets War on Drugs. Axel says “‘Wanna Know You is about the need for reconnection, the feelings and emotional ties that still affect us long after family or relationship bonds have been broken.” The single is his catchiest yet, promising to be another radio and live success. The Sweden via London singer/songwriter, who has performed at Glastonbury, ITV Scrambled and MIDEM, is hot from a packed summer of tour dates, with another tour confirmed for 2019.
Wanna Know You is the follow up single to Everything I Crave, which featured paralympian Cassie Cava (as featured in The Independent and Guardian). Earlier in 2018, Hopeless Ever After, another single taken from the forthcoming album ‘Weight Of The World’ (due for release Sept 2019) was playlisted across 65 radio stations across the UK and secured Axel a prominent spot on the Foodies Festival 2018 Tour with performances across the country. Axel’s debut single, Shine was featured in The Metro, The Mirror, The Sun and the Huffington Post.
Axel’s first gig with a band was supporting Turin Breaks, to such positive feedback that they were asked to play the Indie Week Europe Festival and global music event MIDEM. Axel then took to the road with The Coffee House Sessions which performed to 24 university coffee lounges over a two week period. He has performed at Busk the Box, London Live and I Luv Live has been invited back on the 2019 Foodie Festival Tour. For a list of dates, please check updates on his website.
