“Utanför fönstret” (Outside the Window) is written by Annica Kronbäck, who wants to draw attention to the fact that Christmas is not only about joy, but that there are many children and adults who experience loneliness and, in some cases, worry.
Annica herself says:
‘The inspiration for the song comes from the story of the girl with the matches. I often think about all the lonely children, as well as adults, about all those who have no one or nothing. About the joy many feel around Christmas, but also about the extreme loneliness that becomes even more evident during this time of year. If we could all care a little more and more often, if we could share more with all those who are lonely and vulnerable. All the children who feel anxiety and distress during Christmas because of alcohol and arguments.’
The song is a reminder to all of us to think of those who may need it and to do what we can to contribute to a safe and loving Christmas. ‘Utanför fönstret’ will be released on December 16, 2022, and we are really looking forward to sharing it with all of you.
