WATCH: Sondre Lerche Serenades SPIN Office

Sondre Lerche

Since he broke onto the scene with 2002's Faces Down, Norwegian-born singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche has been adored for his conversational live shows and his sweet-sounding but nuanced pop songcraft. At his recent stop at SPIN's NYC office, he showed off loads of both.

In between performances of three songs from his SPIN-lauded new album, Heartbeat Radio, Lerche explained each song's origin, including tales of getting his green card ("Good Luck") and how he collaborated with another songwriter for the first time ("Words & Music").

Check out his set below. And for more SPIN Sessions, including performances by Frightened Rabbit, Metric, Girls, and many more, click here.
