Day 3 of our feature previewing each of the songs from the new Eric Saade album, ‘Saade Vol.1’. And do you know what – we think it’s high time for a ballad!
Music & Lyrics by: Jörgen Elofsson/Fredrik Thomander
Produced by: Fredrik Thomander
Regular scandipop readers will know that we love a good Jörgen Elofsson ballad, so we were delighted to discover, and indeed hear, that Jörgen had submitted one of his legendary ballads for Eric Saade to record. Unsurprisingly, ‘Someone New’ is probably our favourite out of all of the slow songs we’ve heard from Eric across his two albums. And we know it’s only pop music, but Christ alive – this one’s a heartbreaker! A forlorn and emotional sounding Eric sings about the loss of his love interest to someone else – someone new. And the melody perfectly accentuates the sadness of the song, by adding an unbearable but brilliant drama to it. We love it.
‘Saade Vol.1’ is released on June 29th, and you can listen to earlier album clips here.
