Following on from his big comeback with ‘Colors‘ earlier in the year, Eric Saade continued his successful reinvention as an electropop artist throughout the summer with follow-up singles ‘Wide Awake’, and ‘Back 2 Myself‘. And particularly with a remix of ‘Wide Awake’ that became a big breakout hit in Russia and across other parts of Eastern and Central Europe. Yesterday, Saade appeared at Musikhjälpen alongside Gustaf Norén from State of Sound who features on ‘Wide Awake’, to perform the original version of the song. Check out the performance below. And also check out Eric’s current EP if you’ve yet to – ‘Saade‘.
You can find ‘Wide Awake’ (Red mix) on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
