In the last couple of hours, it has emerged that Nathan Trent has released his Eurovision entry Running On Air on Amazon Music. The song will represent Austria at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
As the clock turned midnight in the various time zones across Europe, Nathan’s song became available to download and stream. It is unknown whether this early release was scheduled or whether Amazon have mistakenly released the song a day earlier than planned. Nevertheless, the song has now also appeared on Spotify so it seems like a planned release.

Refreshing acoustic-pop

Nevertheless, fans have rushed to listen to Nathan’s entry and you can listen via the Spotify link below. If the song is not yet available in your country, try waiting until your time zone passes midnight. Running On Air is an acoustic-pop track. It is perhaps reminiscent of musicians such as James Morrison and Jason Mraz.

Performing in the second semi-final

Nathan will perform his entry in the first half of the second semi-final which takes place on May 11th in Kyiv. Furthermore, you will be able to see Nathan perform live at the London Eurovision Party on April 2nd.

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
