🇪🇸 Miki Núñez dropped his second album ‘Iceberg’!

Today, Spanish representative Miki Núñez released his brand new album ‘Iceberg’. This album follows his successful debut album ‘Amuza‘ which was released last year and reached No. 1 in the official Spanish Album Charts. The debut album was already amazing, but ‘Iceberg’ can even top this. Miki delivers a variety of styles. Uptempo songs, songs you have to dance to, wonderful ballads, Spanish and Catalan lyrics. If you liked his music before, you will love this album. A pop-rock album, full of optimistic and energetic songs It is been a little more than a year since Miki released his debut album Amuza. Just last month he announced the release of his second album ‘Iceberg’, which was released today. Me Vale was the lead single for this album during this summer, followed by Viento Y Vida last month together with Despistaos. ‘Iceberg’ is just like his debut, a very strong album. His new album sounds uplifting with a pop-rock influence, but also ballads and more emotional moments. Even though you might not speak Spanish this album feels very personal. One of the reasons is probably, that Miki wrote on every song of ‘Iceberg’. The album features a total of 11 songs. …

🇳🇱 Douwe Bob releases new single ‘Hold On’

🇳🇱 Douwe Bob releases new single ‘Hold On’

Friday the 13th is feared as an unlucky day, but not for The Netherlands’ Douwe Bob. His new single ‘Hold On’ has been released to all streaming platforms, making his day (and ours!) a lot luckier. A song against bullying Douwe Bob represented The Netherlands in 2016 with ‘Slow Down’, which turned out to not be very prophetic. The singer has seen great success in his home country, releasing two albums since his participation. Now, he is back with ‘Hold On’. The track could remind listeners of ‘Slow Down’, with its distinct country sound that would nonetheless do well on regular radio. ‘Hold On’ is a slower track, with an important message: he has written it to show support for parents whose children are being bullied. Douwe has held an intimate concert for only one fan and her family in the Leidse Schouwburg. After posting about the message of his song on social media, Douwe was contacted by many fans, eventually choosing Saskia as the one who would get a free concert. In the video below, you can see the emotional meeting and performance: You can also check out the song below: And don’t forget to follow ESCXTRA’s New Music …
