The Swedish CD containing all 32 songs from the 2007 Swedish selection can be bought from the 6th of March, 4 days before the Swedish Melodifestival final in Globen, Stockholm.
According to our partner site escsweden.com the official release is March the 9th, the day before the final, but Statoil customers can buy the CD already from the 6th, due to the fact that the petrol company is one of the sponsors on this years Melodifestival.
The price is estimated to be around 179skrbut it can vary a little bit depending on the shop.
Last year Statoil, as a sponsor, also had the benefit of selling the CD and this turned out quite well. Within the first six weeks, the company had already sold 30,000 copies of the CD. At that time 180,000 copies had been sold in total, so one every sixCD's were soldthrough the sponsor.
The Melodifestival CD is a top selling product both in Sweden and among Eurovision Song Contest fans abroad and this year will probably be no exception. In a time where the music industry is complaining about internet downloads being a big problem, this is extremely good as mp3 files of these songs will be floating among fans as soon as the Swedish selection kicks off.
The 2007 CD will feature the traditional Melodifestival logo of a crown in different colours and this year’s background will be yellow.
