Videos for this year’s Melodifestivalen songs are making their way online, and now it’s the turn of hot favourite Eric Saade, who has just released the lyric video for his song “Sting”. But it’s not just a lyric video – we also get an extensive look behind the scenes of the Melfest “Sting” production.
Shot in moody black and white, the video includes outtakes from the pre-recorded components of the #Melfest performance. We also find Eric busy in dance rehearsals, charming the media, hard at work in the recording studio, and the triumphant moment at Melfest when he discovered he was safely through to the final.
He also kindly throws in a bit of the famous Saade shirtlessness that his his Instagram is becoming known for. Tack, Eric. And of course the lyrics are all there so you can sing along with “dude, you’re drunk or whatnot”. One thing is for sure – if there’s this much packed into the lyric video, we can’t wait to see the proper version.
