British country music artists may be developing a good line in country pop, but this development can also, it seems, be found in Scandinavians: Norwegian-born singer-songwriter Liv Austen has released a new single, ‘The Next Time’. Austen has previously released two EPs as an independent artist; ‘The Next Time’ is out through NUA Entertainment.

Austen has a great pop voice (that actually gets more and more appealing on further listening) and as the song was co-written with Jessica Sharman (Ward Thomas) and mixed by Ash Howes (Ellie Goulding, The Corrs), it has solid country-pop credentials.
