After weeks of speculation, Cyprus finally revealed that Eleni Foureira would represent the island nation in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. She will sing Fuego, written by previously announced composer Alex Papaconstantinou. Now, it seems Alex P has revealed the rest of the team behind the track!
Hotter than fire
Yesterday, Alex reposted Eleni’s Instagram post which officially announced her Eurovision participation for Cyprus. In the repost, Alex tagged Anderz Wrethov, Didrick, Teddy Sky and Viktor Svensson. This surely indicates this is the full team behind Eleni’s entry Fuego.
The last Eurovision-related song Alex P was involved in was Margaret’s Cool Me Down, the runner-up in Poland’s 2016 national selection process. This track was composed by Alex as well as presumed fellow Fuego writers Anderz Wrethov and Viktor Svensson. On this occasion, Robert Uhlmann, Linnea Deb and 2009 Azerbaijani representative Arash were also amongst the composers. Nevertheless, could Alex, Anderz and Viktor have created the next Cool Me Down?
Some new faces
Teddy Sky is part of Alex and Viktor’s trio VAX, formed in 2017. Meanwhile, Didrick is a third of Swedish electro-pop group Ember Island. Furthermore, he recently released Ready To Fly, a collaboration with Owl City’s Adam Young.
Fuego is expected to be released between the end of February and the beginning of March.
Are you excited about the prospect of this songwriting team? Furthermore, could Fuego become as much a fan favourite as Cool Me Down was in 2016? Let us know below!
