Written by Alice and produced by Troy Miller (Emeli Sandé, Jamie Cullum), the soaring pop ballad builds from delicate silky vocals and acoustic guitar into a gleaming emotive chorus, incorporating moving harmonies and lush touches of electronics and strings. The lyrics explore feelings of regret for a long gone teenage love, and the awareness that the sweetest things are often those that are lost.
Regarding the single Alice says, “I wrote this song about my first love. I was staying at my parents’ house in lockdown, and being in my old room, rediscovering old photos and diaries, brought back lots of memories and forgotten feelings. I found myself reliving the power of that first love… maybe you can’t love anyone that deeply more than once.”
‘Seventeen’ follows the release of the upbeat pop track ‘Crush’ at the beginning of 2021, which proved a streaming hit featuring in a number of high profile playlists including 10 New Music Friday playlists across the world on Spotify.
Alice released her debut EP Celebrate Life in 2018, which also became a huge streaming success. The title track was a tearaway hit achieving over 3.5 million streams on Spotify, charting in the iTunes Pop Chart and receiving great radio support from BBC Introducing alongside spins on the national Dutch Radio NPO Radio 2.
The new songs from Alice Pisano in 2021 prove the captivating diversity of the fast rising singer. Her intimate story telling and enchanting vocals lead the charge whether she’s performing an emotive ballad or huge pop anthem and her success is sure to continue with more exciting releases to come this year.
