Popular Belarusian singer Gunesh begins her collaboration with a Swedish music publisher, with the singer’s first song, released under the ‘Sweden Songs’ Music Publishing label, already released on the Internet.
Famous Swedish musicians, Nicklas Säwström and Christian Löwenborg Wahlström, have written the Heartbroken Woman song for Gunesh. According to the artist, Swedish Songs, and particularly its founder — Swedish publisher Keith Almgren, suggested the release of the song during the Eurovision-2016 national selection round but Gunesh decided not to make an application for the contest.
Talks between Gunesh and the Sweden Songs Music Publishing company launched in 2015 after Gunesh’s successful performances in the Belarusian selection rounds for the Eurovision Song Contest.
“It may seem strange, but having not even performed at the Eurovision I’ve benefitted from it concerning my creative development. I received lots of offers from foreign writers to perform their music during the selection round. I get musical material every year from Azerbaijan, Spain, Ireland and Sweden,” notes Gunesh.
It’s not easy to find a song which captures the attention from the first listen but this is common with the song the Heartbroken Woman. “My emotional and spiritual situation in life doesn’t match the image and lyrics of the song. Recently I gave birth to my first wonderful son. However, I enjoyed the song and decided to play the role and reflect the feelings and emotions which are experienced by any woman at least once in her life. Unrequited love, the pain of separation, spiritual torment and suffering — all these make us stronger and we continue life with even more confidence,” said Gunesh.
The song has already received lots of positive feedback in Europe and now the singer hopes that it will be enjoyed by Belarusian listeners. Gunesh and Swedish music publishing plan to continue their collaboration with new songs.
