A year after reaching 13th place at Eurovision 2014, our favourite Swiss singer-lawyer Sebalter has released a new single, “Shadows”. It’s taken from his album “Day of Glory”, which was released in January.

Judging from Instagram, the three-minute song has been in the pipeline for over a year. That’s at least 121 days per minute. Was it worth the wait?

Anyone familiar with “Hunter of Stars” will immediately recognize Sebalter’s lively acoustic sound in “Shadows”. But there are some vital differences. Firstly, the violin has disappeared. And, to my disappointment, so has the whistling. But in their place Sebalter has brought along a ukelele to liven the track. This overwhelmingly chipper song encourages us to forget our worries and not “switch the light off”. In short: it’s easy-listening at its easiest.

The breezy video is easy-watching, too: a female friend follows and photographs the singer in an idyllic country house. My one complaint? Not enough Sebalter. Nevertheless, it’s a light, catchy song with a suitably sunny video. Enjoy!

Guys you do not have to get upset like that over this….You are big fans of Sebalter and you do fine….I just have my own reason to have an issue with Sebalter & it doesn’t matter what kind of person Sebalter is in his life & in reality.. After all you will see not all of the fans to have the same sceptic & opinion about any singer…Others might love him,others might like him but criticize him over flaws or some issues.. Every fan has the right to express his own opinion if he sees it with his personal prism..… Read more »

@ Anne i dare you…Lose your cool.. I really do not care if u do.. Its something personal for me…I never said that Sebalter is mean or bad guy.. I was turned off by him for my own reasons but this does not mean that i believe he is horrible awful person…Obviously he is NOT.. Its just that i do not see him with the same eye i was seeing him at first when i became fan of him.. Im really not a sucker that wants to get fooled & get played just because im so loyal fan to all… Read more »

@Mario Sebalter is more than a musician he’s a complex person so he has more to do… And if you are so interested in him you should know that music is only a hobbie he loves being a lawyer and that’s his priority! Plus he’s the kindest person in the world don’t you dare to talk like that on him.. Otherwise I’ll lose my cool…

@Mario We are sorry you feel so upset with Seba, but as @SebalterOnline wrote, he is always very busy .
He said in many interviews that Music is just a portion of his life, a sort of support, but when he has time to check and update his page, Seba is always kind and free to interact with the fans.

@Mario, sorry you are feeling so negative about Seba. But actually Seba said recently that Eurovision was one of the highlights of his past year, so it was very important for him.
Also, with regards to earning stardom, he had already come from a successful Swiss band of 10 years and had just started out his solo project whilst still working as a Lawyer, and is still involved in other work besides being a musician. There are times when he can’t always be available to talk to us but when he is, he’s always nice to everyone.

Well i don’t care anymore about him…
Such disappointment..
He just lost me from a fan of him with his attitude..
Typical…Hotties like him are changing once they go to EuroVision & earn stardom & popularity..
I believe that he just used Eurovision for his own benefit taking advantage of it & he doesn’t care really about the contest..
I thought that he might was different but he isn’t..

But i do not worry myself as there are gazzilion other hot babes in the music business that i can support with being their new fan of theirs..
