As we start the new year, the artists continue to finalise their Eurovision entry, with the aim of releasing them within the next three months. One of the favourites from Eurovision 2020, Daði Freyr has revealed in an interview with RUV that his 2021 entry will be revealed in March.
Alongside Daði, other internally selected artists for the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest will also release their entry in March. With some countries also concluding their National Finals in March.
I’m going to try and win. I do not want to promise anything
Speaking to RUV about his 2021 Eurovision entry, Daði revealed a bit more about his entry:
I would say it’s a logical next step from Think About Things. It’s upbeat and there will be a bit of dance to it, and suchlike. It’s an upbeat pop song
Daði is currently finalising the work on his 2021 Eurovision entry, as he asks Eurovision fans for their voices for his entry. He also revealed on the interview, that he has received over 250 entries so far.

Daði Freyr at the Eurovision Song Contest
Daði, along with his band Gagnamagnið, won the Icelandic national final with the song ‘Think About Things’. They would have represented their country in this year’s contest in Rotterdam. Daði was no stranger to the Eurovision world, taking part in Söngvakeppnin 2017 with “Is This Love?”.
With the cancellation of the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, it has taken some time to confirm if Daði Freyr will be returning for 2021. However, in the end, it was confirmed that Daði, along with his band Gagnamagnið will represent Iceland in 2021.
