CD singles are becoming more and more rare and even Sweden, where singles were very popular now almost have nothing. Since 2016 fans and press get USB sticks and most of the Melodifestival songs are only available as downloads. Although there were some rare promo singles of I CAN’T GO ON by Robin Bengtsson, ESCCovers decided to have a promo single designed which looks stunning.
Today it is third of our 4 competitions – this time it is Sweden.
The prize you can win is the ROBIN BENGTSSON “I can’t go on” bag.
To win this, you have to do the following:
