Free Download: Loreen - We Got The Power (Alex Monteli Remix) + Video

Loreen is set to re-release her debut album Heal next week with some new tracks on it. Lead off We Got The Power got a huge premiere in front of 100 million viewers at last week's Eurovision in Malmö, Sweden. Sweet! The self directed video premiered this week too and features some strong visuals to go with the empowering theme of the song. Loreen is very hands on and a truly refreshing persona in the world of Eurovision. Commercial but with a very zesty twist! Brazilian DJ Alex Monteli puts a dance beat on this banger and makes it even more fit for the clubs. Nice! Enjoy belooow!

Loreen - My Heart Is Refusing Me (International Version) + Crying Out Your Name

Loreen has been busy readying her dubut album Heal which is out October 24th, after years in the making. On it we get this tasty new version of her Scandinavian hit from last year - My Heart Is Refusing Me. We love that she won Eurovision with Euphoria and upped the quality of the contest big time and then went on to actually selling the single across Europe. She has major star quality and a banger of a follow up single! This new version we can hear being played everywhere - it sounds like a massive hit and we love that it's big on emotions and so dark. Top marks! Since this was one of the entries in the Swedish tryouts for Eurovision last year and a top 10 hit in Scandinavia that market is getting its own release - Crying Out Your Name. This isn't such an in your face kinda song, more like a slow burner that will make people interested in the album. Listen to both below! For the original 2011 version of  My Heart... click here! Enjoy!

Polar Music Prize 2012 - Musical Performances 

The equivalent to a Nobel Prize for a musician would have to be the Polar Music Prize. This years recipients are Paul Simon and Yo-Yo Ma, who both traveled to Sweden to accept. Both are exceptional at their craft and truly well deserved winners. Some of Sweden's finest contemporary artists paid tribute - and below are what we gathered from our beloved youtube! Really amazing to see the reaction from Paul Simon watching and taking in the moment. Must be such an emotional roller coaster hearing your babies like this sitting next to the Swedish royals and being so in the spotlight for your life accomplishments. Enjoy!

Loreen - Euphoria - Video Premiere

Loreen has had a magical year so far - winning Eurovision and actually selling Euphoria across Europe - hitting #3 in the notoriously tricky UK market as an example. The video just premiered and we love the idea of mixing this dance track with mysticism and an organic approach. Loreen and the forces of nature merge into one. The irony is that the video never feels euphoric and that they left out her amazing choreography from the live performances. Why?! Plus the video editing feels like it's a rough cut! We're thinking a narrative would have helped out a lot! But the track is still brilliant no matter what! Have a look below! Thoughts?

Loreen - BBC Breakfast Interview 

Loreen's international media blitz started today - and wisely she started with BBC's breakfast show! Euphoria is already midweek at #2 in the UK - which is incredible. Last time a Eurovision song was that successful in that market was in 1996 when Gina G competed for the UK and had a #1 single with Oh Ah Just A Little Bit. 16 years is a long time so it's a huge feat. How cool would it be if she went to #1 come Sunday?! Yeah! Check Loreen out below - love her energy!
