Norway's girl in red will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing up with her newly released single 'midnight love'. With an album in the works, the track is only a taste of what girl in red has coming up in 2020.

Arisen after an epiphany, 'midnight love' is one of girl in red's most intimate offerings yet. On 'midnight love', she puts herself in the shoes of someone who has been hurt — particularly drawing upon her own experiences of being on the other side of doing the hurting, as well as the experiences of a close friend.  On the single, girl in red said:

"even though i’m singing from my perspective, as the ‘’victim’’, in real life it was actually me who was ‘’bad guy’’.  a close friend was treated the same way i had treated someone else. like, this dude would text her at night to see if they could meet up, and it kind of gave her false hope that they could be something more, so she always would say yes and be there for him.  seeing that so up close gave me some perspective and i realised that my situation was very similar. so this song is pretty much me reflecting on how small i’ve made someone else feel. even though i never meant be a dick, i was. we met up recently after she heard the song and i apologised. i think she forgave me."
