Dotter has released her brand new single called Bon Voyage. It is a very catchy and upbeat feelgood track.
DARIN (Zanyar) is a Kurdish-Swedish singer who had taken part in the Swedish selection a couple of times. He has released a Christmas song a few days ago.
Molly Sandén has released an energetic and fun packed video clip for her latest hit Vi ska aldrig gå hem (We’ll never go home). The track is super fast paced and upbeat with a lot of energy.
Emilia Sjöholm has covered one of the new comeback ABBA songs of 2021, Don’t Shut Me Down. She does a really great job as it is difficult to cover ABBA songs, and she gives this a lot of credit.
Dotter recently released her new single called Jealous. It is a melodic and upbeat song with a happy atmosphere.
Theoz has covered Hooked On A Feeling for his new release. It is a cover of the Blue Swede (a group that featured Bjorn Skifs who represented Sweden twice at the Eurovision song contest) number one in the USA and also a hit by the composer, B J Thomas, who died a month or so ago.
A new release from Sweden brings us ATTLERUD feat. JEPPE with the catchy new song NU /NOW.
Check it out below.

- Felix, Oscar & Omar/FO&O – Gotta thing about you
- Nano – Hold on
- Wiktoria – As I lay me down
- Benjamin Ingrosso – Good lovin’
- Owe Thörnqvist – Boogieman blues
It is difficult for ESCCovers to single out who we will promote but finally we decided on FO&O with “Gotta thing about you” as one of the composers Robert “Mutt” Lange is from South Africa and ESC Covers is a South African based website.
FO&O is one of the acts in tonight’s third semi final in the Swedish selection for the 2017 Eurovision song contest in Kyiv.
FO&O is short for Felix, Oscar & Omar, the three members of the group. The group was known as The Fooo Conspiracy until recently, but changed their name to a shorter form after former member Oscar “Olly” Molander left the band. Now there is one less O since this O went to look for greener pastures as someone put it.
The group is debuting at Melodifestivalen 2017 with a song called “Gotta Thing About You”. Robert John “Mutt” Lange (originally from South Africa) and Tony Nilsson have written the song. Mutt has written and produced songs for superstars such as Maroon 5, Lady Gaga and Backstreet Boys as well as for this ex wife Shania Twain and Bryan Adams. Tony Nilsson has had over ten songs at Melodifestivalen over the past years, so he seems to be a veteran.
