MZW is the second solo album from Swedish singer and model Måns Zelmerlöw. The album fits more into the dance genre than pop as his debut album Stand By For... did. The album features 'Hope & Glory', Måns' entry into Melodifestivalen 2009, Sweden's selection process to decide their Eurovision entry. The album has peaked at number 1 on the Swedish album charts matching the success of the first album.[1] Three single have charted from the album, "Hope & Glory", "Hold On" and "Impossible". The album was first released in Sweden on 25 March 2009. The limited edition was released one week after the initial album release on 1 April 2009 and does not differ musically from the standard edition. The only notable differences are that the text on the album cover is printed onto the case itself and not on the paper booklet. Also in the top left hand corner on the reverse of the case there is a Limited Edition number.
