Loreen - We Got The Power

Well Eurovision is over for another year.  The entries were collectively strong, there were some surprises along the way, but the winner was a deserving choice.

And in the middle of it all was Loreen, 2012's winner, performing in the interval show.  It's no coincidence that her latest single, We Got The Power, is released in the same week as the competition that made her a star across the continent.

However, this probably isn't what you'd expect from her.  There's still an element of the trancey Euphoria she's known for, but the whole thing starts with a guitar riff that adds a rockier edge.  The chorus, meanwhile, is uplifting (if a little shouty) and accompanied by military beats.  It's catchy enough and perhaps an indication as to the direction of her follow-up album (due later this year), but it's unlikely to induce the same euphoria as her debut, 'Heal'.


Listen: We Got The Power is available now.
