Pontus Hagberg has become a big name for Swedish pop-fans in 00s under the name Evan after releasing a series of stuff presenting pretty special mix of epic tunes, electronic sound and original voice. Two albums, two participations in Melodifestivalen (as an artist and as a songwriter of Thérèse Andersson's song) and loads of not trivial poptastic stuff.
Evan has come back in 2010 with the compilation "Bonustracks" including new single "Fall From Grace" bringing back electropop-side of Evan flowing in waves of his dreamy vocals. The most of "Bonustracks" songs were already heard by fans before but Evan didn't keep them waiting for some fresh music to come. He has released new album "The Beauty of Your Face" this year and the first single "Out Of Control" has got the video that you can watch below.
By the way you can check snippets of the album here and you can notice Evan's own version of "Do You Really Wanna Love", the song rejected at Melodifestivalen in 2008-2009 and released by Michalis Hatzigiannis later.
