Molly Hammar Releases Captivating New Single, ‘Shortcuts (I Can’t Wait)’

Swedish chart-topping R&B sensation, MOLLY HAMMAR is back again with her new single, ‘Shortcuts (I Can’t Wait), released via Cosmos Music.

Molly’s latest offering opens with the soft trickle of piano keys and laid-back R&B melodies, while Stockholm-born songstress’ smoky vocal captivates with unwavering honesty about the ongoing struggle of chasing her dreams. Molly’s powerhouse vocal gradually builds to give an air of someone who has truly found herself.

“I’m so tired of not being a superstar” Molly quips with a twinkle in her eye. “I said that to my songwriters, and that’s how ‘Shortcuts’ was born. “Shortcuts” is about all the shortcuts you can take towards fulfilling your dreams and the struggle I think everyone faces when you have big dreams and want to achieve them. All the pressure that comes with it, the frustration, the longing. I’ve learned that taking the long road always pays off in the end, if you want something that’s gonna last. Both career wise and in life. It’s a frustration anthem in the most beautiful way.”

Co-written with Professor P (Avicii, Daniel Adams-Ray) and produced by PARO (Dua Lipa, Alicia Keys, Paloma Faith), ‘Shortcuts (I Can’t)’ follows huge singles ‘No Place Like Me’ featuring Big Narstie, ‘WORDS’ and her summer hit ‘Show Me’ with Kim Cesarion, which have collectively garnered widespread media support across the UK and globally from the likes of BBC Radio 2, BBC 1Xtra, Channel 4, The Line of Best Fit, Complex, NYLON and Idolator.

‘Shortcuts (I Can’t Wait)’ will form part of Molly’s second EP, slated for release next year.
