As summer draws to a close, Swedish artist Elliphant has officially debuted her brand new single “Time Machine.” The track arrives as the latest offering from her forthcoming full-length album produced by famed record engineer Mark Rankin (Adele, Florence & the Machine), which is due out for release this year via Create Music Group.
Imbued with nostalgia for simpler times, “Time Machine” is an anthemic ode to the longtime friends in our lives that keep us young at heart. In a moment when we can’t see many of the people that mean so much to us, it’s a welcoming invitation to reminisce and transport yourself back in time. Listen to the song now via digital streaming platforms everywhere HERE.
“To have an old friend means having your own time machine. This song is an embrace to a group of girlfriends that have been my anchor for more than 20 years,” Elliphant says. “We all have been through so much, but when we get together, time stops and we are 13 again. It’s like nothing has or will ever change; through their eyes, I am forever young.”
To celebrate the release of the song, a “Time Machine” TikTok challenge has kicked off today asking fans to post videos of themselves in vintage outfits from past decades for a chance to be featured in Elliphant’s upcoming music video for the track.
Earlier this summer, Elliphant returned with her first piece of solo music in four years with the release of “Uterus.” Along with the stunning music video (shot by Stockholm-native Liza Morberg) which featured a beautifully pregnant Elli in and around the grounds of Sweden’s illustrious Tullgarn Palace, the highly personal song is particularly special given the birth of her baby girl this past August.
