Each week, Eurovision Union will be bringing you a specially curated playlist featuring songs recently released by Eurovision or National Final artists, and a few of our old favourites. This week, we’re featuring some newer releases from some of our favourite 2016 Eurovision artists, and some songs to get us in the mood for the upcoming national finals.
Here is the playlist:
We’ve just recently learnt about who would be participating for Lithuania in their 2017 National final, and one of those 51 songs is actually written by none other than Aminata. Inspired by her 2017 involvement, we’ve including Love Injected, which she performed at Eurovision 2015. To read more about Lithuania’s national final selection, click here.
Also featured on the playlist are songs from our recent features on Eurovision Union, including a song from Can Bonomo’s most recent album, inspired by our Artist Profile of the multitalented artist. I’ll Be Around (Bounce) by Elly V has also made it to the list, after much debate about the song and whether it could have been a good choice for Austria in 2016, a post which you can read here.
Both Devil by Anton Ewald and Running Out of Time by Greta Salome were both featured in our new music section, and still remain two of our most recent favourites by former Eurovision/National Final artists, despite sounding completely different from one another. Amore Pop is another favourite from Italy’s Antonio Maggio, who participated in Sanremo a few years back.
We’ve also featured a few tunes inspired by the upcoming national finals, including songs from Sweden’s Loreen and Ace Wilder, Italy’s Clementino and Finland’s Lauri. Although it has now been eliminated from Spain’s National Final, we’ve also given some love to Brequette, who had our favourite song from the 2017 online component of Spain’s national selection.
Lastly, some songs suggested by you guys on Twitter. We have songs from Douwe Bob, Nina Kraljic, Amir and Måns Zelmerlöw.
