Sweden’s biggest pop star Zara Larsson drops her long-awaited album Poster Girl and is ready to play the songs live for the first time in a free online concert on the International Women’s Day.
Stockholm’s own Zara Larsson is undoubtedly the biggest pop star we have in this country, with her big breakthrough hit Lush Life approaching a cool billion Spotify streams alone… She has been working on her third album Poster Girl for quite a while now, enlisting the help of different producers and songwriters, but still keeping a thread of similar pure pop vibes for the whole album.
The producers include Swedish names like Max Martin as well as Mattman & Robin. On the songwriter front we can especially note Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, who are hitmakers extraordinaire for numerous big names including Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.
Zara’s vocals really take the starring role in leading us through the pop perfection that makes up her album. The themes of the songs touch most often on love in one way or another. Some of the songs are sure to make you wish you were on a dancefloor, while others are more introspective.

Online concert on 8th March
Celebrating the launch of the album as well as the International Women’s Day, Zara is playing a free online concert on the 8th of March. The concert is presented in cooperation with Live Nation and IKEA. The large-scale production is set up at a trade fair center, where IKEA’s interior designer Midori Hasuike has designed several special sets for the live show.
“Gender equality has always been close to my heart, so it feels very good to dedicate my first live show in more than a year to all the amazing women around the world. I’ve really been longing to perform live, so I hope I can spread some glitter and joy to everybody at home with the help of my band and my dancers”, Zara Larsson comments.
Zara really is at her best in a live setting, so make sure not to miss this visually extra special show on Zara’s YouTube channel on the 8th of March. It will be available for viewing for a limited time afterwards.
