In light of last night’s tragedy in Barcelona, Måns Zelmerlöw has taken to his social media today to declare his love for the city and its people. And also to share a song he wrote about his love for Barcelona, which up until now has remained unreleased.
Here are his words, and his song;
“I am absolutely devastated by the events in Barcelona yesterday. Enough now. As many of you know, Barcelona is very special to me. I loved every second of my years there – the people and their mentality, the city and it’s versatility, the beauty in its architecture, the mountains and the beaches. It’s a friendly city. I felt that the first time I set foot there and still do every time I visit. The dark forces of this world try to take that away from city after city, but fail every time. They will fail in Barcelona too.
I actually wrote a song about my love for the city a couple of years ago together with Robert Habolin and Gavin Jones. It never became more than a demo. But I felt I wanted to share it with you in this moment of grief.”
