Vancouver musician Nickolaj (pronounced Nickolai) is excited to announce the release of his new single ‘First Place’ out today on all digital platforms. The track is the lead single from Nickolaj’s debut EP Step Into The Light, which is set for release this summer.

Step Into The Light is produced by award-winning composer Adrian Emond and was recorded entirely by Nickolaj and Adrian in their respective home studios. Working remotely between Vancouver and Calgary, they were able to find ways to collaborate on the album virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The uplifting pop-driven first single, ‘First Place’, is a song about feeling victorious, successful and confident.

“I wanted to affirm that I believe in myself and my abilities,” says Nickolaj. “‘First Place’ is ultimately a song about greatness, and by sharing this song, I strive to inspire others to pursue their definition of greatness.”

Choosing freedom over fear is the driving force behind Nickolaj. After living in Denmark during his adolescence, Nickolaj moved to Vancouver where much of his formative years were spent listening to The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alicia Keys, Prince, and Michael Jackson. He spent his early 20s performing in intimate lounges, historic venues and local festivals, gaining acclaim among his peers, and then two years at music school further nurtured the prospering songwriter. Nickolaj’s unrelenting devotion and energy now propel him into a blossoming solo career.

Nickolaj’s new single ‘First Place’ is available now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide. For more info, please visit nickolajmusic.com.
