"Juliet" chart performance

Darin's second single "Juliet" from his upcoming album "Fjärilar i magen", which is out on September 25, collected very positive reviews from critics and fans. The first charting week gave very good results as well:

- Sverigetopplistan: in the Swedish official singles chart, "Juliet" debuted at position number 37 in "Veckans Singellista" (Weekly Single Chart) and at position number 17 on "Svenskt Topp-20" (Swedish Top 20), both higher than "Ta mig tillbaka" which debuted at positions number 98 and 20 respectively and which is charting at positions number 21 and 12 this week.

- Digilistan: in the Swedish digital singles chart, "Juliet" debuted at position number 6, also higher than "Ta mig tillbaka" which debuted at position number 8 and which is charting at position number 3 this week, almost 5 months after its release.

"Ta mig tillbaka" live at Sommarkväll

Darin was a guest to the Swedish tv show Sommarkväll where he sang "Ta mig tillbaka" and had a chat with the host. We will translate the interview soon, in the meanwhile enjoy the performance right here (around minute 25:00).

"Juliet": lyrics and translation

Like we did with Ta mig tillbaka, we wrote down the lyrics of "Juliet" and translated them into english. Enjoy!

De säger att vi inte passar för varann
Du är besatt det är för bra för att vara sant
Men när det känns som om din värld har skakats om

Det var en gång två unga själar, en förvirrad efterfest
Ett ögonblick jag alltid kommer minnas mest
Du såg på mig, jag såg på dig o allt försvann
Du tog min hand

O det finns inget annat o det enda jag vill se är du
Så kom ut

Juliet, mitt hjärta blöder i en sommarsång
Juliet, jag står här utanför en tom balkong
Kommer du nångång
Oh oh oh
Kommer du nångång
Oh oh oh
Kommer du nångång

Du gör mig skör men jag vill inte sätta stopp
Ett bättre jag du rensar giftet ur min kropp
O alla färger blir så starka genom dig
Bli ett med mig

Känns som ett helt liv sen vi sågs igår
När varje stund, varje sekund är som ett år
Stämmer gitarren för snart är jag hos dig
Håll ut för mig

O jag gör vad som helst för att få vara nära dig just nu
Så kom ut

New single "Juliet" out July 14

Darin picked the second single off his seventh studio album: "Juliet". His intention to release this song as next single was already clear when we asked him in Singapore and also since he performed it for the first time ever at the tv show Moraeus med mera which is airing this autumn.

As we said before, the song has a strong country/folk sound and it's a tuneful summer hit. Also, the lyrics are a modern version of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

Juliet is going to be released on July 14th and on the same day, Darin will perform it at Allsång På Skansen, just like when he performed "Ta mig tillbaka" at Skavlan on the day of its release. The song will be made available on iTunes and Spotify in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. Here's the single cover that Darin shared.
