Meet Swedish pop singer/actor Felix Sandman, who introduces his new single "Middle of Nowhere" today on Popdust.

Sandman says, "The inspiration for 'Middle of Nowhere' came from me finally finding happiness in life after a long time of not feeling it at all. The song is sort of bittersweet, where you have found love for someone but at the same time you are scared that you are moving too quickly, and you keep hoping that the person feels the same way that you do. It's like, should I really say that, or should I not? You are stuck in some sort of limbo."



Prior to going solo and starring in Netflix's original series Quicksand, Sandman was part of Scandinavia's biggest boyband FO&O, touring the globe and accumulating more than 80 million streams on Spotify. His debut single, "Every Single Day," launched his solo career, hitting the number one spot on the Swedish pop charts and staying there for four weeks. He followed with "Imprint," which rocketed to the top of the charts and collected Sweden's Rockbjörnen award for Breakthrough of the Year.

Last year saw Sandman drop his debut album, Emotions, delivering 11-tracks saturated with a parade of emotions, including dazzling highs and dark lows, supported by a national tour with Benjamin Ingrosso.

"Middle of Nowhere" opens on an infectious laid-back pop melody topped by Sandman's delicious, velvety tenor. When the buoyant rhythm enters, the tune takes on bright layers of sonic textures sustained by soft radiant harmonies.

The chorus showcases Sandman's seductive falsetto, infusing the lyrics with surface colors brimming with cool crystalline savors.

"Hope you feel the way I feel / I'm wide awake can I call you / You don't say too much / But I know it's never enough / I hope you feel the way I feel / Cause girl / It's like I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere."

Piers Morgan vs. Rudy Giuliani Is the "Godzilla vs. Mothra" of Our Era

They are two masters at the top of their game—their game just happens to be making fools of themselves.

Once in a generation two titans in their fields go toe-to-toe in a battle that will echo through the ages.

Ali vs. Frazier. Venus vs. Serena. Kasparov vs. Topalov. Now we have a new match to mark down in the annals of history. Not between two great athletes or cunning strategists, but between two of the most unflappably obnoxious ghouls the world of TV punditry has ever known: Rudy Giuliani and Piers Morgan.

In interview after interview they have each proven themselves incapable of allowing others to speak or of recognizing when they're making asses of themselves. No call for civility or reminder of their contradictions will convince either of these mythic figures to back down, apologize, or allow someone else to finish a thought. To see such paragons of interruption and phony outrage sparring over President Trump's disgusting handling of the George Floyd protests—shouting over each other through a delayed video feed—is like watching Baryshnikov and Nureyev stomping on each other's toes.
