Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
