Agnes takes us to the church of disco on Fingers Crossed: Video premiere

Swedish artist Agnes delivers a truly religious experience with her latest track.

If the last time you heard an Agnes song was her (still incredible) hit single Release Me, we urge you to catch up.

The singer-songwriter now has seriously impressive catalogue under her belt, many of which have been huge hits in her native Sweden. Her Avicii collaboration Tough Love from last year is a great place to start, along with recent EP Nothing Can Compare

Better yet, listen to her latest release Fingers Crossed; a sparkling, ABBA-inspired '70s disco-pop number with the kind of instant chorus that wallops you round the head and barely gives you enough time to recover before coming at you again. When you have caught your breath, you'll notice those punchy disco strings are a subtle nod to Release Me. Phew!

"Fingers Crossed was inspired by the sense that nothing is impossible, because nothing is impossible!" Agnes quite rightly says. "It’s a song that can lift you up to new dimensions and like a peaceful tank it crushes everything in its way.

"The song does not excuse itself and I don’t excuse myself. I welcome you now to my party, and it’s my party so… I can do what I want to."

Anyone else hoping to get an invite to Agnes' next big bash?

The kaleidoscopic music video, premiered above, was directed by Swim Club and is inspired by Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 1973 cult classic The Holy Mountain as well as Swedish abstract artist Hilma Af Klint.

Agnes explains: "Music for me is very spiritual and as an artist I see my work is to open up to myself and others to create something bigger than what we are."

Fingers Crossed is available to stream/download from Friday, August 21.
