The Barcelona terrorist attacks have shocked the world and have affected so many people in many different ways. Many stars have made statements and have sent tweets out about how saddened they are. As for Eurovision 2015 winner, Måns Zelmerlöw, he once called the city his home and released his fifth studio album in honour of the city in 2014, titled Barcelona Sessions.
Yesterday saw him release an unheard demo of his love for the city revealing that he has been devastated by the news. Hence the release of the official audio on YouTube. The track is accompanied by an image which looks set to be the single artwork to the song.
Listen To Måns Zelmelöw’s “Can I Call You Home” Here:
The song was written by himself alongside Robert Habolin and Gavin Jones. It’s a relaxing soulful pop ballad that is rhythmically enchanting. Lyrics wise, we hear him singing about a beautiful woman; but as the song progresses, he could well be singing about the beautiful city of Barcelona.
Upon the release of the song, he made a quick statement on Instagram, which can also be found in the description of the music video.

I am absolutely devastated by the events in Barcelona yesterday. Enough now. As many of you know, Barcelona is very special to me. I loved every second of my years there – the people and their mentality, the city and it's versatility, the beauty in its architecture, the mountains and the beaches. It's a friendly city. I felt that the first time I set foot there and still do every time I visit. The dark forces of this world try to take that away from city after city, but fail every time. They will fail in Barcelona too. I actually wrote a song about my love for the city a couple of years ago together with Robert Habolin and Gavin Jones. It never became more than a demo. But I felt I wanted to share it with you in this moment of grief. Link in bio. #barcelona
We adore this song and we are so grateful for this Eurovision Winner dropping this track. This track may never have got the light of day; now we can play it as we think about the awful attacks in Barcelona. Our hearts go out to every single victim and their families. We also agree with Måns Zelmerlöw that dark forces try to take friendliness away from great cities such as Barcelona but, in the end, they always fail.
