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 are 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!
There have been a few album and EP releases during October, so let’s get into it! First up is AWS, the Hungarian representatives from 2018 who have released their album titled Fekete Részem. The album features 13 songs including their Eurovision entry plus the acoustic version. We have featured X/0 as well as Fuss on this playlist!
Former Eurovision winner Jamala has also released an album in October which features a total of 10 tracks including I Believe in U which she performed at Eurovision 2017 as a Grand Final interval act. Two songs have been featured in our playlist!
Former Swedish representative Robin Stjernberg released his latest EP titled Under Water and features four songs including the previously released single I Don’t. We have featured the other songs off the EP which are Under Water, It’s Hard to Get Hurt (When you got nobody) and Always.
Czech artist Marta Jandová has also released a new album titled Barvy which features 11 tracks. We have featured the title track of the album on the playlist.
From former Eurovision winner Conchita we have From Vienna With Love which is a collaboration with the Wiener Symphoninker and features some original and cover songs in collaboration with the orchestra. We have featured Writing’s on the Wall in the playlist.
From Italy, we have Valerio Scanu who has previously participated in Sanremo, and has just released an album titled Dieci. We have featured the song Capovolgo il Mondo in this month’s playlist.
