It’s a new year and that means not only are we awaiting the revelation of all this year’s Eurovision contenders, but Eurovision artists from years gone by have also been busy in the studio recording new music. Here’s some of the hits released in January! Included in the list is two time Iceland representative Greta Salome, two time Hungarian singer Donny Montell, Monika Linkyte from Lithuania and British duo Joe and Jake and a solo single from Alex Larke from Electro Velvet!
Alex Larke who represented the UK at Eurovision 2015 as part of duo Electro Velvet, has debuted his latest single ‘Shine On’. Watch the video below.
UK Eurovision hopefuls Electro Velvet have taken to the Graham Norton Show stage to promote their song for the 2015 Contest. The duo made up of Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas sang ‘Still In Love With You’ an electro swing song on the chat show on Friday night, giving us a first glimpse at how the song may be staged when they perform it in a fortnight in the live final in Vienna.
God knows we all love something new and innovative at Eurovision. You only have to look back on the last ten years and you can see the great variety from the bearded lady Conchita Wurst, to the elderly Russian Grannies in 2012, scary mask wearing rockers Lordi and Ireland’s Dustin the Turkey puppet. For some of these acts the risk has paid off and saw them walking away with the Eurovision crown, others however failed to qualify.
Weeks of speculation came to a head tonight when UK announced that Bianca and Alex aka Electro Velvet will be their Eurovision entry for 2015. Their song is called “Still in Love With You” and the official music debuted on BBC’s Red Button channel tonight introduced by Scott Mills.
