It’s been seven long years since Anton Ewald, one of Sweden’s most famous heartbreakers, graced the Melodifestivalen stage.But now he’s back and this time he’s bringing out the big guns and playing his own in the second semi-final Song “New Religion”

Before Anton stepped into our worlds as a singer, he was no stranger to the melodifestivalen bubble. He first came on stage in 2009 when he was one of Velvet’s background dancers. In 2012 he accompanied both Andreas Lundstedt and Danny Saucedoas as a dancer But in 2013 he was ready to put himself in the spotlight and perform the song “Begging” A year later he returned with “Natural”

Although Anton made it to the finals on both occasions, he has not been featured on Mello since 2014. This is because he has been living in Miami lately, but has spent the last two months in Sweden attending melodi festivals He has promised to release an EP shortly after the competition. He is also working on another overseas project that will be released under his alter ego Kim Wolfgang, so Anton Ewald definitely has no peace of mind. He’s here on business

The difference between the two previous Melfest entries by Anton and “New Religion” is that Anton is now the man behind the wheel from start to finish. He is the main songwriter alongside Jonas Wallin, Joe Killington and Maja Strömstedt behind the song And for this reason, the track is very close to his heart “In the truest sense of the word, Anton Ewald is everything Anton Ewald in 2021!”, the singer recently said in an interview with Culturefixco United Kingdom

But some things stay the same As with his efforts in 2013 and 2014, “New Religion” is all about the dance and the groove. Despite the song’s title, the lyrics have absolutely nothing to do with religion. According to Anton, it’s about magic that arises when two hearts, each scarred, come together, collide and invent a new story Or in this case a new religion

“My song was created when I sat down with the songwriters in a studio session. We came up with this tough tune for the chorus, and after that we just felt like we had the song, it was all set you there will be action, a lot of dancing, a lot of energy and I’ll give everything, “says Anton to SVT

Here all alone in the dark
Don’t you wanna play with my weakness
You know I’m here and I feel it
Come on

When we collide like a car accident
You are my condition, my whiplash
Comes alive when we’re in distortion

Do what you want, I don’t mind
We found a new religion
Baby don’t kill the rhythm

I don’t have time for no silence
The sound of your voice is my guide
You are always there when I need it
Come on

You now that you are my addiction
You made me love that friction
Comes alive when we’re in distortion

Do what you want, I don’t mind
We found a new religion
Baby don’t kill the rhythm

Do what you want, I don’t mind
We found a new religion
Baby don’t kill the rhythm

Kristín, our Icelandic correspondent, is a mother, student and a die-hard ESC fan. She took part in the competition for the first time in 1989 – she didn’t get any points on VHS Island that year, but she didn’t care because the Austrian Thomas Forstner and the competition grabbed their hearts and none of them have let go of it since. She is a fanatical maker of all kinds of lists

I love it! I’ve already given myself the Weeknd mood.I noticed that he has worked as a songwriter for a handful of Melfest entries over the past few years, like for Olivia’s Never Learn in 2018. I’m glad he’s back on stage and heh heh 😉
