A few weeks ago Eurovision 2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw told wiwibloggs that he had submitted two songs — as a songwriter — to Melodifestivalen 2016. Today Thomas G:Son — the legendary composer behind Eurovision favorites like “Euphoria” — confirmed that he worked with Måns on one of them.
His comments came on P4 Skaraborg Sveriges Radio this morning. He did not reveal who will sing the song, but he did say that another top-tier Melfest composer — Peter Boström — also collaborated with them.
