Tusse has just released his new song, “This is Our Christmas Song.” The song is written by Tusse himself in collaboration with Kerstin Ljungström and Louise Lennartsson from Estraden via Universal Music Sweden/Republic Records. The song is dedicated to those who may feel lonely on Christmas, says Tusse himself. Tusse states, “sometimes we forget what the real importance behind Christmas is and instead focus on stressing about Christmas presents, decorations, whether Santa will come, etc. For me, Christmas has always been about showing how much you appreciate your family and loved ones by getting together, eating amazing food, and celebrating the love you share.” Tusse continues to explain that a sense of loneliness may feel amplified during the holiday season for some, and that they wanted to write a song to exemplify this feeling.
“This is Our Christmas Song” comes after the release of Tusse’s latest single, “Grow.” The single was written by Tusse in collaboration with Amanda Cygnaeus, Petter Tarland, Pär Westerlund and produced by Paro. The single “Grow” is all about finding oneself and the journey that every individual has with self-growth. The track accompanies a children’s choir from Class 5B in Kyrkskolan Täby.
Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born and came to Sweden at the early age of five-years-old. Since, Tusse has been making his mark in the Swedish music sphere. This year alone, Tusse broke a record when he won Melodifestivalen 2021 with his single “Voices” with over three million votes. From this victory, Tusse was able to represent Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, coming in 14th place. Tusse made history this year becoming the only artist to win both song contest TV shows Idol and Melodifestivalen. His single “Voices” is a platinum-selling song that went all the way to #1 on Spotify and Top 10 on Swedish radio and iTunes in Sweden. “Voices” also made it into the Top 200 on the Global Spotify Chart, as well as in eight other countries during the Eurovision final.
