Continuing the floaty and emotive theme in her videos, Alex Maxwell returns with ‘Letting You Know’.
The London-based 22 year old (yes England, not Sweden!) co-wrote the track with Max McElligott, the former frontman of British alt-rock band WolfGang, who has also penned records with The Naked and The Famous, and Kylie Minogue and Fernando Garibay.
Alex is working on her debut EP, for a release later in the year.

Alex was born in London but spent her teenage years writing music in Madrid before moving back to the UK to develop her music in 2014.
Her new release is called ‘No Flight’ and was, ironically, written with producers, The Flight (David Bowie, Björk, Lana Del Rey). The video is a mesmerising collage of charming colours and Eastern beats.
Alex is Hollywood Records’ first UK signing, and is currently in the studio co-writing and producing her debut album with Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter Carey Willetts (Athlete), The Flight and Dan Grech-Marguerat (Radiohead, Tom Odell, Wolf Alice).
