Today is a big day for Eric Saade's fans. What should I start with?
SVT has shown a concert (shot in Stockholm's Annexet) out of Eric's Pop Explosion tour and even if you're not a fan but just liked some of Mr. Saade's stuff you're gonna enjoy this 1-hour TV-concert.
Big screens, spotlights, live band, Melodifestivalen-dancers. The team has tried to give a 100% full pack of what's these days required from pop-performance in Sweden. I mean you shouldn't expect the show of Madonna's level, consider it like a gig of a local artist and then you'll be able to enjoy performance and songs filling last 3 music years of Swedish pop.
SVT's concert has become a sneak peek of Eric's DVD to be released on November 28th. You can check information about DVD here, watch the concert HERE and check the setlist of TV-version of the concert below.
And really big news are just released snippets of Eric Saade's two new singles - "Marching (In The Name Of Love)" and "Miss Unknown"! Yes he releases two at the same time. And if the first track is a quite recognizable arena-pop we hear a lot these days (Eric's slower version of "Amazing"?) sounding like a great progression of Saade's sound of the latest two albums, then the second has turned to a hip-hop influenced ballad. Eric says that his new album should be more urban but seems like fans shouldn't be scared if "Miss Unknown" is what Eric meant because it's still very-very pop.
