Margaret Berger - Human Race

As the pop community continues to bemoan the lack of new material from Robyn, Norway's Eurovision entry from 2012 has stepped up to the plate.

Since placing second in Norwegian Idol in 2004, Margaret Berger released two albums before entering Eurovision this year to become quite the star.  Human Race is the follow-up to I Feed You My Love and will feature on her forthcoming third album.  It's a cosmic electro-pop track about loss of innocence - as she laments on the chorus "I don't know where I lost my faith, help me escape the human race".  The downbeat lyrics contrast with the sci-fi sounds, bleeps and bloops and glittering production, together forming this brilliant pop track.

It's clear, then, that Berger is a force to be reckoned with.  Expect to hear much more from her in the coming months across Europe and beyond.


Listen: Human Race is available now.
