Another week comes to an end and that means it’s New Music Friday! Storms are gathering across parts of the world this weekend and we can’t think of a better way than to banish them with bangers. So it’s time to share the best new releases from the Eurovision world this week. Over the following pages is everything you need to know for your weekend playlists!
Sirusho – ‘Summer Love: Vuy Aman’
Back in 2008 Sirusho dazzled everyone in Belgrade with ‘Qele Qele‘ and earned what is still Armenia’s joint highest finish of fourth place. Over a decade later and the Queen of Summer is still releasing hit after hit. This time we’re taken on a follow up to the duet with Sebu, one half of Capital Cities, ‘Vuy Aman‘. Now Sirusho is taking the lead with some ‘Summer Love’ of her own and written by herself. Where ‘Vuy Aman’ spoke of a passionate love spanning the continents, here is the realisation of experiencing a summer with a loved one. “You left a mark right on my heart, I’ll follow you eternally.” Also a rare treat to have an English language song from Armenia’s greatest export besides apricots.
As always, Sirusho provides a lovely Visit Armenia advert with her self-directed video seeing the sights of Gyumri and the intricate camera shots blending seamlessly into the lush electronic, dance hall beats of the melody. Check out the first entry in this week’s New Music Friday below:
