On ‘I Don’t Know Why’, NOTD shares:

We’ve always been huge fans of Astrid and have wanted to collaborate on a song together for a long time. We have crossed paths many times before, and “I Don’t Know Why” finally felt like the perfect song to do together. 2019 was a huge year for us, and since then, we’ve taken the time to figure out what the next chapter of NOTD sounds like. We can’t wait for people to hear this one and all of the other records we have lined up for 2020.”

Meanwhile, Norweigan singer-actress Astrid S has reached 1.5 billion global streams, two sold-out shows, and a successful stint with Zara Larrson on her U.S. tour in 2019.

About ‘I Don’t Know Why’, Astrid S adds:

I’ve been friends with Tobi and Sam for a little while now, and we’ve always wanted to do a song together. I was so happy when they sent me this song, which I think is perfect for the summer! I hope we’ll be able to write something together one day.”
