Music artist Zara Larsson performed her brand new song ‘Better You’ on an electric bus in Gothenburg to unsuspecting passengers.

The video sees the unsuspecting passengers looking on in shock and awe while the stunning Zara Larsson performs the acoustic version of her song ‘Better You’.

“It was a very special recording session, partly because of performing “Better You” for the first time, and above all because of the unusual setting, where none of the passengers knew what was going to happen,” says Zara.

The video and song is made possible by the Gothenburg’s new electric buses. The silent new electric buses noise level is so low that acoustic concerts and video recordings can take place onboard. The three electric buses run on renewable electricity and are energy-efficient, silent and completely emission-free. The batteries are quickly recharged at the terminal bus stops. Passengers have access to onboard wi-fi and phone charging facilities. The bus stop on Lindholmen has an indoor terminal.

Zara Larsson first rose to fame in 2008 at 17 years old, in the TV talent show Talang, and has since been enormously successful. With songs such as “Uncover”, “Carry You Home”, “Rooftop” and her major summer hit “Lush Life”, she has become one of Sweden’s most popular and talked-about artists. This autumn she will release a new album.

Zara’s website is a mashup of music, blog, fashion and lifestyle and here are a few photos from her recent blog called My Calvins.
