New Music Friday – this week with Sam Ryder, Kristian Kostov, Jamala and more!

Ten of the best new songs from Eurovision artists!

Alexa Curtis – ‘Cry’

Australia’s Junior Eurovision 2016 representative Alexa Curtis is not the only one crying this week after the recent news that the nation will not be returning to the contest this December. However that has not stopped us sharing the latest single from one of Australia’s brightest young talents to come out of Junior Eurovision. Since her participation with ‘We Are‘, Alexa is a mainstay of youth television across the Southern Hemisphere. Currently starring in Rock Island Mysteries on Nickelodeon. This week Alexa released ‘Cry’, a mature mid-tempo synth anthem about a bad relationship.

KEiiNO – ‘SPED UP (Remixes)

Of course Norway’s Eurovision 2019 holy trinity KEiiNO, always understand the assignment on New Music Friday. After another successful tour Down Under, the band are back with the 6-track SPED UP (Remixes) EP. Ever wondered what joiking would sound like in nightcore? Then look no further! These six tracks are exactly what it says on the tin; sped up, high-pitched reinventions of classic KEiiNO hits. The perfect workout and household chores aid, as the playlist starts off gentle and increases in intensity!

If you’ve ever wondered how some of your favourite KEiiNO songs would sound like at a higher speed and pitch, this upcoming Friday might be your lucky day! We’ve remixed 6 of our songs we wanted to check how they would turn out a bit, (and a few A LOT) quicker. These versions might give you an extra energy boost while cleaning, dancing or working out, maybe a good laugh or perhaps a new favourite (or least-favourite).

Michela – ‘Lost In The Shadows’

Although Michela has featured on numerous collaborations with her Maltese Eurovision colleagues, such as Destiny and Ira Losco, ‘Lost In The Shadows’ is her first solo single since participating for the island nation in 2019. Back to her best after a music break, Michela explores a country-pop sound in her new single that talks about the boundaries of trust in a relationship. This is expected to be included on the forthcoming debut album.

Lisa Bird

My first Eurovision memory was watching 1994 as a hatchling. I've been tapping my talons to the bops and bangers from Europe and beyond ever since! I finally spread my wings to attending the contest in Lisbon 2018 and am now a regular at many events and national finals - especially my regular nest at Eesti Laul.
