Throughout 2017, we enjoyed creating weekly playlists featuring songs from Eurovision and national final stars, new and old. This year, instead of (im)patiently waiting for artists to release new music each week, we’ve decided to focus on new music on a monthly basis.
We’ve selected songs that have been released on Spotify this month, and we’ve excluded songs that were competing in national finals (as we have our national final playlists for these tracks!). Also, since there’s thousands of Eurovision and National Final stars from over the years, it can be hard to keep up with all the new releases, so if you notice a song is missing, let us know and we’ll add it to the playlist!
This month we’ve been blessed with some incredible albums. Two of the most anticipated albums have come from two Swedish stars who also coincidentally share a bromance! The first album is from Felix Sandman who released his debut album titled Emotions. The 11 track album features both his previous singles Every Single Day and Imprint. We have featured Lovisa, Are You and 0 Emotions on this month’s playlist.
The other anticipated album came out towards the end of the month, and that was from Benjamin Ingrosso. The album is titled Identification and features 12 songs including his previous singles I Wouldn’t Know and his Eurovision song Dance You Off. We have featured I’ll be Fine Somehow and Good Intentions on the playlist.
Some of the other albums released this month include I Can, which is an album from former Latvian national finalist Markus Riva. This is Riva’s first album since 2013 and features 11 songs, including a live version of the song Take Me Down. We have featured the songs I Can and Try on the playlist this month.
Former French representative Amandine Bourgeois has also released her first album since 2014, with the latest disc titled Omnia. On the playlist we have included the songs Tell Me Who You Are, Tout est clair and Pas à Vendre.
Former Ukrainian national finalists The Hardkiss have released a new album this month featuring 17 tracks. We have included Does It Feel and 00:00 on the playlist! From another national finalist, we have Italian artist Malika Ayane who released the album Domino. We featured Non Usciamo and Sogni tra I Capelli.
Slovenian representative from 2018, Lea Sirk, has released an album titled Roza which features 12 tracks much different to her Eurovision entry, Hvala Ne! On the playlist you will find the song Cakam Te.
New Singles from Eurovision Stars
Wow, there’s a lot of new singles this month, so let’s get straight into it! We will start with the most recent Eurovision stars and work backwards through the years. Starting with one of our favourite releases this month, and that’s from German representative Michael Schulte. This is his first release since Eurovision, and it’s titled Never Let You Down. Also from this year’s contest, we have a new track from Sevak Khanagyan as well as a new remix of the winning song Toy from Netta. Last but not least from the 2018 contest, we have Aisel with her latest song My Only.
From the 2017 contest, we have Greek representative Demy with her latest track titled Too Late. There’s a new track from Aleksander Walmann titled Waiting For Your Love, plus a Killer new track from Nathan Trent! Naviband have released a new song, as has Joci Papai and Triana Park. We have a new remix of Manel Navarro’s latest released Voulez-vous danser. From the class of 2017, we also have a collaboration track between Soundland and Timebelle titled Heartache.
Racing through to a mixture of previous years, we have Stig Rästa who collaborated with Big Ohe on the song Sa Ju Tead, while we also have the latest track from Anouk titled Het Is Klaar. Tim Schou released a song called Run Run Run Run Run, while Magdalena Tul returned with a new single titled Va Banque.
We also have new music from Cleo, a single titled Film and a new track from former Russian act Alex Sparrow titled Hello Angel. From Czech artist Marta Jandová we have her latest single titled Školíš Mĕ. From former Eurovision winner Conchita, we have Für mich soll’s rote Rosen Regnen.
The last few songs from this category include Sergey Lazarev who released two remixes of his song Shyopotom, plus perhaps our favourite tune of the entire playlist, I Don’t by Robin Stjernberg. Nina Badric has also released a new song, titled Rekao Si.
New Singles from National Final Stars
We will try keep it short and sweet, but like the previous categories, there have been a fair few new releases this month! We will start with Icelandic act Hildur with the song Picture Perfect. Keeping with the scandi theme, we also have ISA with her latest song Shy.
Former Melfest act Mendez has collaborated with Linda Pira and Danny Saucedo on the new track Latino Americano. Fellow former Melfest artist Oscar Zia has released the song Betong, and Molly Sandén has recorded with the Spotify studios with a song titled Ingen som jag.
Also from Scandinavia, we have Tone Damli who has released the song Seasick.
From outside of Scandinavia, we have Maltese national finalist Aidan with the song Mine, and from neighbours Italy, we have Le Vibrazioni with Pensami Così. Rocco Hunt has also released a new song, titled Fammi Scendere.
The last few songs include Patik by Miks Dukurs and the song My Civil War by Xavier Darcy.
