The Netherlands have announced some details regarding their entry for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. Mia Nicolai & Dion Cooper will sing “Burning Daylight” in Liverpool this May. The song is set to premiere tonight.
“Burning Daylight”, not “Chasing Highs”
For a while, it seemed like the Dutch entry would be titled “Chasing Highs“, based on a Genius entry under that title. However, broadcaster AVROTROS have now announced that the song will be called “Burning Daylight”. We know that the songwriters behind the Dutch entry this year are the artists themselves, as well as Jordan Garfield and Duncan Laurence, just like AVROTROS revealed when announcing their entrants for Liverpool. The Eurovision 2019 winner is the creative behind Mia and Dion’s entry for Liverpool.
Tonight, the Dutch entry will premiere on national television. The song will see daylight for the first time on the talkshow Khalid&Sophie, which airs around 19:00 CET. “Burning Daylight” will be played around 19:15 CET. At the same time, there will be a premiere on YouTube.
