Axel Schylström has returned to Melodifestivalen but this time as a songwriter on Moncho's "Cuba Libre" entry. When asked if he would ever return to the contest, he professes a love for the show and competing. During his time on Swedish Idol, he missed out on competing and performing at the finals by just one week, only to have the same thing happen in his Melodifestivalen debut when he was eliminated during the Andra Chansen duels. If and when he competes again, he will only want to do so when he feels he has the right song to take him all the way to the finals.

In addition to working on new songs, Schylström shares that he is working on a new autobiographical book intended to help inspire and motivate others to overcome their personal challenges. He will embark on a tour throughout Sweden this fall on which he will give speeches to those in attendance as well as perform songs.
