Loreen – Paper Light (Higher)


Singer of The Best Eurovision Entry Of All Time is back with the first single from her forthcoming second album. The track is called Paper Light (Higher), with the “paper light” bit meaning she could get her fans to go to a cold Stockholm park to send off a bunch of paper lanterns in this rather pretty promo video. It’s technically currently only available on Spotify in the Nordics but will be out worldwide on Monday 9 March. But of course it’s all over YouTube by now, with Warner Music Sweden frantically removing each link as it appears. It’s a big (euphoric?) house-pop number with Loreen singing in her best falsetto and a massive orchestral outro. For some reason we expected something groundbreaking from Loreen and on first listen this isn’t quite it. But, regardless, it’s an excellent song which will definitely please the fans and with any justification earn some radio play outside of Scandinavia. She also hasn’t forgotten the show which made her and will be performing the song live for the first time at this week’s Melodifestivalen (what’s that, we hear you cry?! Well, look here!). That could well be proper event telly.
