Ulrik Munther – Stay Awake

I first featured Swedish artist Ulrik Munther back in 2011, when the then-teenager was just starting out on what has ultimately became quite the career.

Having achieved viral fame with his cover of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ and competing at Melodifestivalen, Munther released three albums that all charted top-five in his native homeland.

Now he’s back with the beautifully sincere ‘Stay Awake’, a subtle fusion of indie and pop that feels deeply emotive and endearing.

“What I want to say most with this music is probably, be yourself and be honest. To think about things a little more.”

Taken from the album ‘Put Your Self Out There’ which is out now.

Swedish 17 year old kid who’s made a buzz for himself for winning a talent show in Sweden and also doing a pretty decent cover of Gaga’s Born This Way. Album’s due out later this month in Scandinavia. The track above isn’t a lead single but I love it. Beats Justin Bieber to a pulp. Check out here.
