Song of the Day: Måns Zelmerlöw – Should’ve Gone Home

Måns Zelmerlöw tries emotional midtempo for second single
As you all might remember, Måns Zelmerlöw managed to win the Eurovision Song Contest in May with his song ‘Heroes’. The pop star brought the victory back to Sweden and is building up an international career with the release of his album Perfectly Damaged. After an extensive press tour, he just started a string of club concerts around Europe and the release of his new single single ‘Should’ve Gone Home’ is another great piece of promo for the release of the album.

Måns and his team decided to show a different side to him as an artist with the second single. They didn’t go for one of the more uptempo tracks on the album which are in the same style as the hit ‘Heroes’, but they decided to release the midtempo ‘Should’ve Gone Home’ instead. In the song written by Fredrik Sonefors, Martin Bjelke and Micky Skeel, Zelmerlöw regrets being unfaithful to his lover, only to find out she is all he wants. “Feels like I’ve been looking everywhere, just to find out that it’s you”, he sings heartbroken and ashamed. The track is a great pop tune, tailor made for radio and it shows off his vocal talents perfectly well. Here’s to another hit by our favourite Eurovision Hero.

Update: The official video is out and shows Zelmerlöw out in the city at night in reverse as he knows he should’ve gone home, but he didn’t. Totally fits the track and it’s beautifully shot.

He also did a flawless live rendition of the track on the roof during a Swedish television show!
