James Newman is returning to represent the United Kingdom at Eurovision, after he was selected as the country’s representative in 2020 as well. He was set to sing “My Last Breath” at the contest, before it was cancelled due the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with BBC Newsbeat, James said that his 2021 entry “Embers” will be “positive and upbeat”.

I feel like everyone wants a party and to have some fun so when I was writing, thatโ€™s what I had in my head. I wanted something people can dance to, even if itโ€™s just in their kitchen.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmรถ. I'm studying journalism and I love music โ€” you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
