Mads Langelund - Paper Plane

October 17, 2022

It's been nearly two years since we've felt such immediate excitement, right from the intro: since Skip Curtis' "Someone For You" in November 2020.

Yes, super catchy from the third second, "Paper Plane", the new single from Danish singer-songwriter Mads Langelund won us over from all points of view!

First, the super clever writing, evokes a long-distance love relationship, as the key phrase of the chorus says: "If I could jump on a little paper plane, I would already be on my way to meet you there ".

Then, as we already said, the super catchy melody. My 21 years of radio experience have taught me that a song has a chance of making it to the A-list if a catchy melody (usually the chorus) pops up in less than 40 seconds. For "Paper Plane", you must not wait less than 3 seconds to capture the attention of the listener and make him shake his head in traffic jams.

Then, the production is super detailed too! And it's Mads himself who produces his tracks. He has been helped by Asger Møller on this one. A work of a goldsmith, where each element has the place it deserves.

Finally, the music video (to watch below) is touching, showing a young aviation fanboy fulfilling his dream. By dint of playing with paper planes, he ends up getting on a real plane. Very professional, the music video is also directed by Mads!

The artwork is also very successful, highlighting the young boy from the music video with the lyrics in the background.

Mads Langelund is definitely a multi-card artist who succeeds in all aspects of his music, whether audio or video.

Released on Friday, the song has been in our heads all weekend and we couldn't wait to let you discover it. A real crush and we can already say that it will be in our summary of the best songs of the year 2022.
