Ah, here’s the video for ‘Sleepless’ by Eric Saade, which was a released as a single in Sweden (and all around the world on iTunes) just before Christmas. It’s a fitting accompaniment to the fun, delightful little pop song, and a good taste of what to expect from Eric’s Meloifestivalen debut next month! He’s one of the artists that we’re most excited about in this year’s competition.
The video itself was directed by the marvellous Anders Rune, who’s directed videos from the likes of Lena Philipsson, Sarah Dawn Finer, and more recently, ‘Burning’ by Alcazar, and the original and much loved ‘Release Me’ by Agnes! It’s mostly a simple affair, introducing Eric against a white back drop. But it’s been interspersed with club scenes where Eric seems to be channeling Robert Pattinson from Twilight, whilst semi seducing his lady! Not intentional probably, but there’s a definite vampire vibe there!
