Eric Saade - Colors

I've always enjoyed Swedish pop singer Eric Saade's dance-pop music. Now, he's back with a new single and a new style. Eric has written "Colors" together with, among others, Gustaf Norén from Mando Diao and Viktor Norén from Sugarplum Fairy.

But when artists say they want to make "serious music", I tend to worry, since that usually mean boring acoustic stuff that I can't stand. One example is September, whose new "credible" music as Petra Marklund bores me to sleep. But in Eric's case, I was positively surprised!

Because even though "Colors" isn't an uptempo track, the sound is still electronic, which is what matters to me. The song is a grower and I also like the whole VHS retro feel of the video down below. So what do you think of "Colors"? Please leave a comment.

The track is out now on iTunes Amazon UK, Amazon US and Spotify.

Eurotix - The Best Of Times (EP and video)

Artwork by Jimmy Dyrebrant.
Mine and Larry Forsberg's synthpop project Eurotix just released the new EP "The Best Of Times". The title track received the highest number of votes in a poll where our listeners got to choose the next single. The song means a lot to me since I wrote the lyrics myself and because the sound is inspired by my favourite genre: italo disco.

The EP includes a new radio edit of the title track and the bonus tracks "Face Down" – an homage to my favourite Kim Wilde track – and "You Won't See Me Dancing". Finally, we've included a Hi-NRG remix of the album track "Su-Su-Superman", inspired by the sound of iconic producer Bobby Orlando.

Check out the gay themed video down below. It was made using "The Sims 4". The EP is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

"The Best Of Times" tracklist:

1. The Best Of Times (Radio Edit)
2. Face Down
3. You Won't See Me Dancing
4. Hi-NRG Superman

Book sale

I've bought some new books at the book sale: "Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walter, "Doctor Sleep" by Stephen King och "Melting The Snow On Hester Street" by Daisy Waugh. King's books are always thrilling and the other two books include things I love to read about: drama, glamour and classic Hollywood stars.

Sergey Lazarev - You Are The Only One

I've been a fan of Russian pop hunk Sergey Lazarev since 2007 and have collected all his CD's over the years. Now, Sergey is back with a new song, the cool dance-pop track "You Are The Only One", which is representing Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. I really hope he'll go far in the competition. Sergey has become quite a gay icon after protesting Russia's awful anti-gay laws.

The track is out now on iTunes, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

A Day out in Saint-Tropez with Joan Collins

As the title says, we get to follow Joan Collins – fabulous Hollywood legend and "Dynasty" soap diva – out in Saint-Tropez. Check out the video down below. I can't get enough of this soap queen and I wish they would make a "Dynasty" reboot with Joan and Linda Evans reprising their roles. One can dream, right?

ILY - Magic

I've written a lot about Swedish pop singer Mimi Oh and her eighties inspired music. Now she is back with a new name, ILY, and her single "Magic" is one of my favourite songs at the moment. The electronic dance-pop track is so catchy and I can't wait to hear more from ILY.

"Magic" is out now on iTunesSpotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US. Check out the cool video down below:

Courtney Act - Kaleidoscope

Australian drag queen Courtney Act got her big break in season six of "RuPaul's Drag Race". Now, she has released a new single, the lovely title track of her 2015 EP "Kaleidoscope". Sure, Courtney doesn't have the strongest voice in the world, but the electronic dance-pop tracks are really catchy and definitely worth checking out if you like artists such as Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga.

I'm really enjoying the whole EP but my personal favourites are "Ecstasy" and the wonderful title track. Don't forget to check out the cool LGBT themed video down below. The EP is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon UK and Amazon US.

"Kaleidoscope" tracklist:

1. Kaleidoscope
2. Ecstasy
3. Ugly
4. Body Parts
5. Boys Like Me
6. Inhale
