Info for S.I.D.E.S.



Emerging as a breath of fresh air in the 2010’s alternative scene, Alice Merton has never been one to shy away from personal subjects in her lyrics or to experiment with varying sounds in her arrangements. “Same Team” is no different from her other fare in that respect, with a beat and soaring voice that demand your attention.

“The last two years have been challenging for everyone in some way or another,” Merton says. “Friends and family were lost, restrictions were enforced for the first time since I’ve been alive, and mental strength had been tested to its limit.”

She continues, “S.I.D.E.S. tells my story of how I experienced these past years. It’s a summary of the ups and many downs, the psychological challenges I faced, and somehow realizing that there will always be another side to the story — the question is just how and when do you get there.”

With extensive touring and one of 2019’s standout debuts, Alice Merton’s metamorphosis from Hype Machine and Shazam sensation to bona fide stardom is has taken root. She has gone platinum in six countries, amassed over 261 million global streams, sold out headlining dates in New York and Washington, D.C., and has been championed by the likes of Billboard Magazine, Rolling Stone Magazine, Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show, James Corden's Late Late Show, and Live With Kelly and Ryan.

While studying at University of Popular Music and Music Business, Alice Merton founded Paper Plane Records Int. with her best friend and manager Paul Grauwinkel, while crafting songs alongside co-writer and producer Nicolas Rebscher. Label and radio reps scoffed at 2019’s “No Roots” - It’s a minute too long! Take the guitars out! - but by the time it topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart in the U.S. and amassed over 142 million YouTube streams, naysayers turned to supporters.

Long safe from those one-hit wonder jabs (the fiery “Lash Out” followed “No Roots” as an alt radio staple) MINT finds Alice Merton progressing from the owner of a handful of hits to an accomplished album artist. On “Funny Business,” she ventures outside her usual circle of collaborators and enlists Grammy-nominated producer John Hill (co-producer and co-writer of Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still”) for a swaggering, bass-groovy joyride that's ready to duke it out with "Why So Serious" for the title of Alice Merton's next big hit. It also doubles as her own personal dos and don'ts checklist: "I don't break hearts / I don't do funny business / I just ride in cars / And watch them get hung up in it." Seriously, why so serious?

Your first single - the only song you’ve ever released - goes to No. 1 and explodes into an international smash; what do you do next? Well for one thing, you release more songs, but for Alice Merton, the breakout success of “No Roots” ignited a madcap run of transcontinental gigs, interviews, and television performances; all the while, she was writing and recording songs towards her debut album whenever she got a sliver of free time. Alas, the payoff is finally here: the debut album MINT is due January 18th via Paper Plane Records International. For Alice Merton, the whirlwind story is in the songs. ​

“Some talk about growing up and moving around a lot,” the English-german artist observes, “But a lot of others discuss the struggles we’ve had with starting a label, the feeling of trying to prove yourself to everyone.” After studying at University of Popular Music and Music Business, Alice Merton founded Paper Plane Records Int. with her manager Paul Grauwinkel, while crafting songs alongside co-writer and producer Nicolas Rebscher. Label reps scoffed at “No Roots” - It’s a minute too long! Take the guitars out! - but by the time it topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart in the U.S., hit the Top Ten in further 9 countries, streamed more the 300 million times and sold over a million units which ultimately helped her go platinum in seven countries, naysayers turned to supporters.

Regardless, she’s safe from that one-hit distinction and with extensive touring and one of 2019’s standout debuts on the way, Alice Merton’s metamorphosis from Hype Machine and Shazam sensation to bona fide stardom is starting to... take root. “It feels really relieving,” she affirms. “I’m very excited we can finally put these songs out and even start working on the next chapter.” ​

In addition to 7 Platinum Awards for her debut single in Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, Austria and Turkey, Alice Merton has also won the Echo Award, EBBA Award and two awards for pop culture.

This album contains no booklet.
