Exciting times are on the horizon for Scandinavian artist, singer and producer Emil Wilk, better known as M.I.L.K, with the release of new single Summer Freckles via Capitol/Universal today.

The first new music since the release of his acclaimed single, Prisoner featuring Benny Sings (Rex Orange County), and the latest track from highly anticipated debut album due for release in 2020; Summer Freckles will keep the summer vibes alive as the colder months draw in.

Self produced by the Copenhagen native, Summer Freckles’ builds on the same qualities of pervious releases and will sweep listeners away with it’s soulful sincerity. Emil says “The song is a smile on the days of summer. It’s the first sip of a dry martini. It’s memories you don’t want to forget. It’s an urge to jump into your car with someone special. It’s the nostalgia you feel when you realize that the joy of this very moment is gonna fade away. It’s a song about a radiant summer day spent with a summer freckled girl. It’s inspired equally by Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” and the undeniable grooves of Chic.”

Known for being a multi-talented artist who has a hand in all facets of his creative output, the past couple of years have seen M.I.L.K rise from a blog favourite to firm favourite. Described as “A concentrated shot of summer vibes’ (NME) and “The prodigy of Copenhagen” (Rolling Stone) M.I.L.K has developed an impressive reputation and cult fanbase. Picking up millions of streams around the world and with blogs and websites clambering to feature him to such an extent, M.I.L.K has become a regular on the Hype Machine charts and a mainstay on radio playlists across Europe.

Drawing on a broad range of influences and collaborating with some of the biggest French artists across genres such as Benjamin Biolay, The Avener, The Geek, Nemir and Møme, the M.I.L.K sound is as curious as the many collaborations suggest. Mining from the same rich seam as acts such as Jungle, Metronomy and Rhye, M.I.L.K’s eclectic and intelligent alt-pop sound effortlessly blend genres and styles into his own distinctive universe that fits together like a collage of summery memories.

Having inked a deal with Universal Music, next spring will see M.I.L.K release his debut album, produced by himself and friends this album is set to be hailed as one of the great debuts of 2020 thereby cementing M.I.L.K as one of the most promising multifaceted artists for the year ahead.
