If you haven't heard of her already, LINA is a singer-songwriter who won The Voice Israel in 2013. Her latest single I Wore It Better is out now, and she is currently touring with Little Mix as their opening act! I was lucky enough to catch up with LINA to talk about I Wore It Better and what to expect from her set on tour!
1. Congratulations on the new single I Wore It Better! What was the inspiration behind it?
Thank you! I love this single. I’m performing it every night on The Glory Days Tour and I couldn’t be more proud of this new baby of mine! I co-wrote it with the insanely talented Bhavik Pattani, Josef Melin and Hiten Bharadia. It’s a super fun song that talks about overcoming the disappointment/heartbreak of seeing your ex with their new crush, who is wearing your favourite sweater. It explores how that makes you feel, the memories, the pain but ends with positive and empowering feelings.
2. Was singing/music something you've always wanted to do?
I have always wanted to be a performer. I loved being on stage since I was 4 years old- dancing ballet in front of 800 people. It felt like home- and it still does!
3. You're about to go on tour with Little Mix, what do you have planned for your set?
I start my set with an original ballad called Forget - while playing the piano (a costume made pink LINA piano!), then move on to my previous single Can’t Keep Falling, two special covers, and ‘I Wore It Better’. It will be fun - I promise!
4. 2017 is coming to an end, so what can fans expect to see from you in 2018?
New album, new tour and a lot of good music!
I Wore It Better really is a brilliant song, and I can't wait to hear LINA sing it live when I see her on Little Mix's Glory Days Tour next month!
