Malmö in Sweden plays host to the 58th Eurovision Song Contest in May Sweden has become one of the world’s biggest exporters of music. This important industry recognises its debt to the ground-breaking achievements of ABBA, who turned their 1974 Eurovision Song Contest win into a springboard for an international career of unparalleled success and longevity. Almost four decades after that first Swedish victory, Loreen, the winner of last year’s contest in Azerbaijan, scored a truly massive pan-European hit with “Euphoria” (No.1 in 13 countries and 29 gold and platinum sales certifications). Thirty-nine countries are hoping to repeat this success in Malmö in front of a TV audience in excess of 100 million viewers. “We Are One” is the banner under which the 2013 contest is taking place, but a listen to the 39 songs on the official album release reveals that the element that unites the contestants is their spirit of diversity.
Newly discovered stunning vocal talents take their place beside internationally established stars. The Eurovision Song Contest sets no restrictions on language or style, which makes this collection of songs unique – 39 brand new compositions with only one common denominator – they have all been chosen to represent their country with the mandate of hitting the chord of European taste and carrying off Europe’s most coveted musical crown. Will your favourite track be that winner?
