In 2013 he represented the host nation at Eurovision with the perfect piano pop song “You”.
And this week Robin Stjernberg reminded the world exactly why Sweden is so smitten with him when he revealed his new single “Feed On My Love”.

Emotional and epic songs about unrequited love are what Robin does best, and he certainly doesn’t disappoint with this new release.
A gospel choir lends Robin a hand on the new song, which serves as a contrast to his last single “Rain”, which was remixed by Didrick.
Understandably, our Swedish heartthrob is already bouncing off the walls about his new track. Writing in the single’s official press release, he says:
“For me, I love the song incredibly much, not only because I feel I got a good song but also because it shows a whole new side of myself. I let people see my creative side more in depth.”
Robin is a man wronged, and the gritty piano compliments his grungy new look on the single cover. Work that grey scale!
The shy teenager we met on Swedish Idol has long been forgotten, however with that revenge-fuelled chorus, we won’t be missing him any time soon.

Sweden at Eurovision
Sweden has racked up a more than impressive record at Eurovision in recent years. Out of the last six contests, the Scandinavian nation has finished in the top five five times.
Unfortunately for Robin, it was his stint in 2013 that interrupted the pattern. Still, his 14th place finish is nothing to be scoffed at.
Much of Sweden’s success is down to its multi-week national selection process Melodifestivalen. The 2017 edition of the pop extravaganza is set to kick off this Saturday, 4 February.
Eurovision winners Loreen and Charlotte Perrelli will do battle with Melfest veterans like Mariette and Wiktoria, as well as newcomers such as The Fooo Conspiracy and Benjamin Ingrosso.
