Norwegian singer Sigrid spent more than an hour greeting and chatting with fans at HMV in Glasgow’s Argyle Street on Friday signing autographs and high fiving youngsters, beaming: “Everyone is just so friendly here, it’s amazing.”

Some even showed off tattoos taken from her Don’t Kill My Vibe lyrics, while one admitted to having another 14 tour dates lined up to see her including her next Scottish gig in Edinburgh in November.

She hailed Scotland’s “beauty” after taking time out from her hectic performing schedule the day before to explore Loch Lomond while supporting chart topper George Ezra at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

The star and her band took to a windswept Conic Hill above Balmaha for some rare time off between gigs to take in the view after a whirlwind month which has witnessed the launch of her addictive debut album ‘Sucker Punch’ ahead of her own tour later this year.

Asked how she was enjoying her time in Scotland, she said: “I love it here, it’s got so much natural beauty.

"I love the fact that you can be surrounded by all this amazing nature and its only half an hour away from the city.”

In a sensational 12-months for the Alesund born 22-year-old, she was crowned BBC Music Sound of 2018, saw her single Strangers – based on the Bill Murray film Lost in Translation – crash into the UK top 10, and perform around the country including Glasgow’s O2 Academy in November last year.
