The artist Kaleen has released the music video for her song 'We Will Rave', which will represent Austria at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest in May.

Now that we can rave, We Will Rave - Austria's song and music video for Malmö is out!

Kaleen, the 29 year-old native of Upper Austria, will be representing her country at this year's Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, where she will be performing her techno-inspired pop track We Will Rave

The artist is positively raving to tell us more about the song:

"‘We Will Rave‘ is about needing a place of refuge when your heart is broken, and finding it in music. The rave is where the outsiders and wounded souls go to heal and dissolve their problems through music. It’s the sea of rhythm that washes the pain away and gives us salvation.”

Now that the Eurovision Song Contest is on the horizon, Kaleen looks forward to the opportunity of sharing We Will Rave with an audience that can take the song and make it their own:

"I am extremely looking forward to performing this along with the fans. It is my perfect Eurovision song. It allows me to combine everything I love, and to get carried away with the audience. The song is adaptable for everyone: ‘We Will Rave’ can become We Will Dance, We Will Sing, We Will Live, We Will Party…. It is powerful and positive, even though you might be fighting through something at the moment. It’s supposed to enhance a life-loving state of mind and getting lost in a moment.” 

We Will Rave will be performed for Austria in the First Half of the Second Semi-Final at the Eurovision Song Contest in May. The song was penned by Anderz Wrethov, Jimmy "Joker" Thörnfeldt, Julie Aagaard and Thomas Stengaard.

Kaleen has been working as a choreographer and stage coach since 2020. She taught herself how to professionally record and produce songs, and the first self-produced single of hers came out in September 2021, under her own label, Wifi Records. 

After three more singles, Kaleen took the step of writing and recording a complete album. This debut LP, Stripping Feelings, was released in September 2023.

In 2021, she was the creative director for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest entries for Spain and Bulgaria, and at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022, she was both creative director for Spain and stage director for the entire production.
