23 year old Norwegian artist Pen Gutt debuts today with his first release ‘Independent' - Pen Gutt’s debut release on Luft Recordings and Terrible Records is another signifier of the wealth of homegrown talent emerging from Norwegian shores - with ‘Independent’ following the likes of SASSY 009 and Sigrid in making waves on the global stage.

‘Independent’ was recorded last summer, shortly after Pen Gutt returned from a year in Denmark - “I had a lot to say, so everything just poured out,” he told The FADER. Explaining the joyful celebratory feeling bounce behind the chorus, he said, “The hook came from that I wanted to make it cool to say that you're independent, that you don’t need anybody but yourself, and it really doesn’t matter if you got a boss or not. You’re the one in charge.” In the true spirit of independence, the typically vibrant accompanying video was fully self-directed by Pen Gutt, too.
