Sweden: Tusse releases his new single "Grow"
The Swedish Eurovision 2021 act, Tusse, has released his new single titled 'Grow', a song with a strong self inspired empowering message.
If one musician can reflect the difficulties people are experiencing in their effort to find their place of peace and progress in the world, one of them without doubt can be Tusse.
After facing from an early age the harsh side of life, as he was forced to flee from his country as a refugee and find his habour of safety in Sweden next to his aunt, through his songs he turns these personal experiences into a source of inspiration and conveys a strong message to people who have been through similar situations.
His new single "Grow' like his Eurovision entry 'Voices' coudn't differ much when it comes to the messages delivered. Growing in a world with all the problems it carries is not an easy case, especially for the younger ones.
"It's not easy to be young today, all the challenges children face. Not only do you have to find yourself and try to fit in, you also worry about the climate and the environment and what the future will look like. In addition, one must fight against mental illness, pandemics, racism, sexism, homophobia and so much more. This song is for all young people who continue to fight. This is our battle song. ”
Tusse's song 'Grow' has been penned and composed by himself along with Amanda Cygnaeus , Petter Tarland and Pär Westerlund.
