"Down This Road" features Highway Superstar, and will feature on Sally Shapiro's Sad Cities album alongside previous outings "Christmas Escape", "Forget About You" and "Fading Away".

Sally Shapiro said of the track, which is teamed with a video directed by Orion, ""Down This Road" is a melancholic, jazz-influenced synthpop song that we wrote together with Highway Superstar (Alex Karlinsky). Alex sent us an idea for the first verse, which we really liked. We had also been messaging with Jorja Chalmers about a collaboration, because we love the way she plays the saxophone. So Jorja recorded a great saxophone solo for it."

Karlinsky added, "When I started thinking about "Down This Road", the setting and atmosphere was pretty clear to me. I've known Johan and Sally for quite a while now, and I'm a big fan of their music. Naturally, I was quite nervous but I am thrilled with the outcome, and so happy and proud to be a part of Johan and Sally's new album. This song took me on a journey, and I hope it takes you to a place you haven't been to, as well."

Sad Cities will be the duo's first new album in five years, after 2016's The Collection, and was mixed by mixed by Agebjörn and Johnny Jewel.

"Down This Road" featuring Highway Superstar is out now. Sally Shapiro's Sad Cities album will land 18 February via Italians Do It Better.
