Loreen has this week released a brand new single. ‘We Got The Power’, written by Ester Dean and produced by Patrik Berger.
The week she’s chosen to release it is no coincidence. It’s one year since she won the Eurovision Song Contest with ‘Euphoria’, and so this week the contest is taking place in Sweden because of her. And on Saturday night’s show she’ll perform the song live.
‘We Got The Power’ is quite different from anything you’ve heard from Loreen before. Militant beats, dramatic guitars, and a chanting, shouty choir. With just a little bit of the ethereal dance sound that we associate with Loreen. And the involvement of Patrik Berger (Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’) and his production is evident here too. It’s dark and moody, yet somewhat uplifting at the same time. And an exciting glimpse into what we can possibly expect from the second album of hers, due out later this year.
The song is released tomorrow on iTunes, but is already available to listen to on Spotify. Or right here;
