After last summer’s hit “Girl From Sweden“, Eric Saade is taking a step away from his comfort zone with his new single “Colors”. The new single is first taste from his upcoming EP and it turns away from his traditional dance pop sound to an edgier electronic style. The new sound comes from the production team State of Sound, who with Eric has been working with since September.

Eric Saade – “Colors”

The song takes the listener back to the ’80s and has a feeling of synthpop duo Modern Talking, but with a fresh production to to still give it a feeling of 2016. With slightly deeper lyrics and a synthpop sound, the new single is something completely different from Eric — and it really is refreshing change.

Eric has made the dance pop sound his trademark so at first “Colors” might not be something for the fans of his old sound. However, “Colors” is good, and it might just be the best Saade track ever.

The lyrics deal with the pressure of modern life. He sings, “It’s spinning round like one million pills in my mind/I can feel my dream slowly coming to life.” It’s all getting too much, and he concludes, “I need to recover from black and white to colours”.

“Colors” still isn’t too arty, but it still has the commercial pop sound and could be added to any radio station’s playlist across Sweden. It still might not be able to get Eric completely rid of his teen pop idol status, but “Colors” shows that he can do much more than just disposable pop for teenage girls.

What do you think of Eric Saade’s new sound? Will you add “Colors” to your playlist? Tell us in the comments!

lol, Spotify doesn’t need to be advertised, and you can have a free account. It’s just so much more popular than any other music listening apps.

Masked advertising for Spotify from Wiwi. Not cool. I use Deezer.
