Swedish pop artist Paul Rey has released the video for his latest hit single “Talking In My Sleep” out now via Warner Music.
The song is currently Top 10 on Swedish radio and has been in the Top 50 Spotify Chart for the past two months, peaking at number six with over six million streams.
His acoustic focused 2018 EP “Note To Self” is certified Gold for sales, while the singles “Hurt” and “Good For Me” from last year were a more up-beat, pop direction.
“Talking In My Sleep” was written in a three-hour session in a Swedish hotel room during the first ever meeting between Paul, producer Lukas Hällgren and co-writer Alexander Standal Pavelich. The original vocals from that session are still the lead in the track today.
Paul has been nurtured and guided by his mentor Quincy Jones. The relationship with the multi-Grammy Award winning music icon began in 2014, when the Swedish singer began to spend a lot of time in LA.
After Quincy heard songs from Paul’s then unreleased 2015 debut EP “Good As Hell”, he took Paul under his wing and continues to mentor him today.
Paul collaborated with Snoop Dogg on the 2017 single “California Dreaming”, which has now achieved more than 40 million streams on Spotify – while the video featuring the pair has had more than four million views.
Paul has also spent time touring with the likes of James TW, Fifth Harmony, Nico & Vinz and more.
Now based in his native Sweden, Paul is working on his debut album, due for release later this year.
