Great news for fans of Swedish pop with a new single and confirmation of a new album from Swedish pop darling Agnes.
As you’re probably aware, the Swedes do pop better than virtually anyone else on the planet.
It’s why so many of today’s biggest global stars look to the Scandinavian industry for their biggest hits.
While it’s only really her 2008 smash ‘Release Me’ that’s garnered much attention outside her native Sweden, Ms Carlsson’s pop output has continually impressed.
But her new single ‘Here Comes The Night’, released on Friday, is a cracker.
It’s so Swedish, so pop that it might even out-ABBA ABBA and it’s genuinely one of the pop highlights of 2021.
There are ABBA flourishes, an abundance of cool and quirky chord changes, a catchy as hell chorus and a stunning vocal.
“‘Here Comes The Night’ is a homage to all of us out there who are longing to just let go,” Agnes reveals. “It is a declaration to the dreamers, the night, the mist, the spirituality. Those that dare to fall in love – with the moment, the people around them and themselves.
“Hopefully, it will guide the listener into a moment of something they can call freedom.”
And the best part is? There’s a whole album of new Agnes tracks to follow; her fifth long player ‘Magic Still Exists’ due to drop globally on Friday October 22.
