The 2014 Melodifestivalen winner and Swedish representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen has released a new improved version of the Fredrik Kempe, Hamed ‘K One’ Pirouzpanah and David Kruger composed entry Undo.
In March we saw Sanna Nielsen win Melodifestivalen on her 7th attempt and lift the grand prix with the majestic electronica power ballad Undo. It was a personal triumph for Nielsen, something for which was an ambition of her’s for many years to win the popular Swedish national final which she did at the Friends Arena in Stockholm following in the footsteps of such celebrated Melodifestivalen alumni as ABBA, Carola, Charlotte Perrelli, Lena Phillipsson and Loreen.
Leading up to Eurovision finals at Copenhagen in only a few weeks sees Nielsen release a new version of the song. The changes are subtle as the instrumentation and backing track seems to have been touched up giving it a sparkly cleaner wall of sound and of course there is the lyric change with the insertion of the word love after the lyric sad in sections of the song. Whilst its been said that Undo capture’s the image’s of Wuthering Height’s Heathcliff and Cathy on the stormy moors; this new version released by Nielsen’s record company Warner Brothers certainly ramps up the dramatic effects in the track to an even stronger dynamic conclusion in the crescendo of the song.
What can be assured is that Miss Nielsen certainly looks to be heading to Copenhagen as one of the hot favourites to win the grand prix. Betting houses and bookies are tipping her as one of the strongest contenders to win the contest next May.
