Swedish producer/multi-instrumentalist sir Was recently shared “I Need A Minute.” The track is off his forthcoming release Let The Morning Come, out via Memphis Industries on October 15, 2021. Sir Was is set to perform at Chats Palace, London on October 21, 2021. Speaking about the new single, Wästberg says: “I Need A Minute is about the strong wish to stick around for a bit longer. A cry for more time. At the same time, it’s a wish for a pause. I Need A Minute! You hear me?!”

2020 was supposed to be Wästberg’s big year. Still riding high from the release of his second album as sir Was –2019’s Holding On To A Dream – the Swedish multi-instrumentalist was booked to open for Little Dragon across Europe and the US. When the tour was cancelled due to COVID, he decided to channel all his energies into writing new music instead, but in August of 2020, he received some life-changing news. Tests revealed he carried the gene for a rare, hereditary condition causing multiple strokes. “At first I got very sad and scared,” says Joel of the devastating diagnosis. “But at the same time, it was like all the other worries I carried suddenly didn’t matter. I just got this very intense feeling of being alive.”

sir Was, has performed and collaborated with Little Dragon, Efterklang’s Clasper Clausen, Falle Nioke (on the recent collaborative Marasi EP) and Junip as well as performing at Eurosonic, Mad Cool and Benicassim Festivals.
