Måns Zelmerlöw has completed his run on the current series of Så Mycket Bättre. And with that comes the EP gathering up all of his ‘tolkningar’ (versions) so that we can listen to them all together in one handy sitting. On it, we have his cover of Molly Hammar’s ‘Tell Her’ (‘Faller’), Daniela Rathana’s ‘Hatar Dig’, Norlie & KKV’s ‘Mer För Varandra’ (‘Sober’) and Anna Ternheim’s ‘This Is The One’. Listening to them all together, it’s the latter two of the four that stand out as being the highlights from his tenure on the show – most likely because with them, he’s delivered two songs which could well have come from any of his own most recent albums. They’re the most definitively Måns, and they should rightly be included in any future retrospective of his repertoire. Bright and breezy bops, the pair of ’em.
