Jenny Wilson’s work has been a cornerstone among fans of punchy, whip-smart pop since her 2005 debut Love And Youth. With four LPs produced in the past decade and three Swedish Grammy awards earned for 2013’s Demand the Impossible!, the newest dagger in Wilson’s boot is “Wanna Have It All”. The soulful track premieres today on Best Fit.
“Wanna Have It All” is a previously unheard bonus track taken from the EU edition of the Demand the Impossible!, released via Crunchy Frog. Punctuated by rallying backup vocals, crisp drums, melodic keyboard work and enough determination for days on end, “Wanna Have It All” is a statement of confidence packed into 3:15 of sophisticated pop pleasure. “Can you feel me?” Wilson asks. The unspoken answer echoing back from the listener? An emphatic yes.
Speaking about the song, Wilson said: “I considered this track lacking the voice of the warrior that is characterizing the other songs [on Demand the Impossible!]. Therefore I thought this one would have to wait. Today, I can't think of a better track for a spring that has already been marked by so much pain, anger, terrorism and hatred. This song reaches for the light. It's an anthem for those of us who are never going to give up on our hopes.”
Wilson also wrote a poem exclusively for Best Fit:
