Albin Lee Meldau (born February 8, 1988) is a Swedish singer, songwriter and musician. He self-released his debut EP, Lovers, in 2016 with help from producer Björn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John).

Later that year, Albin signed to Astralwerks, who re-released his Lovers EP, and in 2017 released the follow-up Bloodshot EP.

In 2017, Albin was named by NPR Music as one of their must-see artists at that year's SXSW,[1] and featured as part of their Tiny Desk Concert series. NPR Music described his voice as "breathtaking, soulful, thunderous and impossible to ignore".[2]

He was previously part of a band called the Magnolia.

His debut album, About You, was released on 1 June 2018.[3]
