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!
One of the most anticipated albums of the year was released during the month of November, and we are of course talking about the latest album from Marco Mengoni. The album is titled Atlantico, and for this playlist we have featured Mille Lire and the title track Atlantico.
Fellow Italians Il Volo have also released a new album titled Ámame which is an album in Spanish. We have featured the title track as well as Ay Ay Ay Amor.
French artist Amir has released the Deluxe version of his previously released album, Addictions. We have featured the songs Sal de Mi Mente and Imagine.
The final album we have this month is by Polish artist Lanberry! The album is titled miXtura and on this playlist we have featured the songs Nieznajomy and Next Mistake.
We have an EP on this month’s playlist which is titled Din, by Swedish national finalist Oscar Zia.
New Singles from Eurovision Stars
It has been a massive month of releases from Eurovision stars, so let’s get straight into it! We will start with some of the more recent Eurovision stars, and move back through the years. From the class of 2018, we have Alexander Rybak with the track Let the Music Guide You, and we have Alekseev with the song Kak ty tam as well as the song Don’t Make Me Cry by Aisel.

Also from 2017, we have Robin Bengtsson with the song Never Born to Love, as well as Blanche with her latest track titled Moment. Naviband are back with a new track, as is JOWST in collaboration with Manel Navarro on the song Roller Coaster Ride. Another collaboration we have is between Timebelle and Sunstroke Project titled Tocame.
Let’s look at the remaining Scandinavian releases this month, including the song Vill ha mer by Eric Saade. Carola has released the song Let It In, and Charlotte Perrelli has released the song Flickan från Småland. This month we have a solo release from Topi Latukka, the lead singer from the band Softengine with the song Pehmeitä Pintoi. From Tim Schou, lead singer from the band A Friend in London we have the live acoustic version of The Tide.

From Jedward we have two new singles, one titled Karma and the other titled Golden Years. From Ivi Adamou we have Diko Mou, and from Aurela Gace we have Zemra Rratata.
