The Swedish singer, songwriter and Eurovision 2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw, released his eighth album, ”Time” today and it’s ~spoiler~ AMAZING. The album is a chronological journey from a couple of years back – sometimes even earlier than that – up until now. The album features 12 songs including the hits “Walk with me” with Dotter, “Better Now” and “Grow Up To Be You”. “TIME” is already his eighth album and the follow up to his 2016 released album “Chameleon”.
”It begins with a letter from myself to my younger self as a young boy, then it moves to quite a dark place, before things turn around for the better again”, says Zelmerlöw.
Some sessions took place during songwriting camps in Battersea, others at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studios. A lot of the songs were co-written by Zelmerlöw together with Jon Eyden. ”I now consider him my go-to guy, ‘my Guy Chambers’ if you will”.
Previous singles, “Walk With Me”, and the double A-side, “Better Now/ Grow Up To Be You”, are followed by the new single, “One”.
Zelmerlöw explains: ”It’s about a couple that fights a lot in order to let it all out, to be able to continue with a clean slate and an even deeper understanding, and hopefully an ability to love each other even more”.
The once young and inexperienced Swedish pop phenomenon with the winning smile has turned into a full-blooded pro.
”I’m really proud of this album. I believe it’s the best thing I’ve ever done, and I’m excited to share it with everyone else”, says Zelmerlöw.
