German artist and 2010 Eurovision winner Lena Meyer-Landrut is back with If I wasn’t your daughter.
If I wasn’t your daughter by Lena is a very personal song as it deals with the singer’s rocky relationship with her estranged father, who left the family when Lena was six years old. The song will be featured on Lena’s upcoming new album, Gemini.
Lena also released the official video’s for Catapult (featuring Kat Vinter and Little Simz) and Home, both songs taken from her album Crystal sky (2015), but never officially released until now.
