The six time Melodifestivalen star, who was recently revealed to be entering the contest for her 7th attempt with the track Undo has just released a brand new festive album called Min Jul.

Sanna Nielsen is an established star in her native Sweden. She first entered Melodifestivalen back in 2001 and her best placing was with Empty Room at the 2008 final at the Globen. Her entry in 2014 with the Fredrik Kempe track Undo will see Nielsen’s seventh attempt to lift the trophy.

However more recently she has released a festive album called Min Jul. The album features Nielsen covering a range of seasonal songs such as Jingle bells and Auld lang syne. The album also features a handful of new recordings such as her single Julen Närmar Sig. This song sees Nielsen utilise her crystal clear vocals which in turn complements the acoustic guitar and piano synth instrumentation to powerful effect.

As one of Sweden’s best loved female vocalists the coming year promises to be an exciting one for Nielsen with this new album release and as part of Melodifestivalen 2014 we will see her vie with 31 other artists in a bid to represent Sweden in Copenhagen at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
