Janet Leon, “New Colours”

Despite a little internal rhyme in their titles, “New Colours” isn’t quite Cyndi Lauper‘s “True Colors” (a more established gay anthem), but the latest single from Janet Leon, Swedish chanteuse and former member of girl group Play, is a big, unapologetically gay dance song. (It comes as no surprise that it’s the theme of Stockholm Pride 2013.) With production credits from Jorgen Elofsson (who helmed Kelly Clarkson‘s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)”), it’s euphoric and celebratory. Pride, y’all!
