Friday is the home of new music releases around the world. We’ve taken the time to compile a list of songs that you must listen to before next Friday comes around! We feature stars from both outside and inside of the Eurovision world. So, what are you waiting for? Dive on into ESCXTRA’s New Music Friday!
Outside the Eurovision world
Throughout the last few days, we have already posted about a few of our favourite releases from inside the Eurovision world. Therefore, before we recap them let’s check out some brand new songs from outside the Eurovision world.
“Don’t Tell Me” by Ruel
Is this the future of Australian music? Ruel hits the scene as an unknown 14-year-old, having only featured on M-Phazes “Golden Years” before this week. Last month, he covered “Weathered” by Jack Garrett along with M-Phazes for triple j.
Yup, this sounds like a pop-star in the making. With the Australian producer, M-Phazes, giving him writing and support such as this, Ruel is bound to go far. Perhaps he could represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018.
“It’s a Lie” by The Vamps featuring TINI
For our second song this week, we look at a group who performed at a national final earlier this year, despite having no obvious ties to Eurovision… yet! The Vamps released the first half of their third studio version, “Night and Day (Night Edition)”, featuring a collection of ten songs. One of these features Disney Channel Latin America star TINI! “It’s a Lie” harnesses that summer vibe with a Spanish guitar and a Latin beat. Are The Vamps heading for their first UK number one album this week, plus a participation for the United Kingdom next year? Only time will tell.
“Down by the Water” by Amy Macdonald
A brand new music video for a brand new album! Scottish singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald has released her video for “Down by the Water”. As an artist who has been tipped for Eurovision by media outlets, on and off, over the years, is Amy Macdonald’s latest sound the kind of genre that the BBC should turn to?
