Today we got the second entry of Australia’s national selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2022. Jude York will compete in Eurovision – Australia Decides with the song “I Won’t Need to Dream”.
Listen to “I Won’t Need to Dream”
Jude York is 22-year-old singer-songwriter and comes from Toowoomba, Queensland. While “I Won’t Need to Dream” is his first commercial single, he featured on a song “Glaciers” by producer Wastemall last year.
To think of my song being shared on such a monumental platform is truly mind-blowing. I wrote it with the amazing Billy Stonecipher about staying hopeful that dreams can come true. And now to have this opportunity as a queer artist in regional Queensland, I’ve never had a better reason to believe in that message!Jude York on “I Won’t Need to Dream”
Eurovision – Australia Decides 2022, hosted by Joel Creasey and Myf Warhurst, will be broadcast live on SBS on 26 February 2022 at 20:30 AEDT (9:30am GMT/10:30am CET). The Eurovision 2019 televote winners KEiiNO will return to Australia after their successful 2019 tour of the country and be the special international guest act.
