New music releases from our Eurovision Class of '2202 June 2022 at 13:05 CEST
The Eurovision Song Contest may be over for another year, but The Sound of Beauty echoes on throughout Europe. Can’t quite hear it? Then get acquainted with the cacophony of music we’ve put together for you below.
As our 2022 artists dispersed from Turin on Sunday 15 May, making their way home to the countries they’d represented at the 66th Contest, the majority of them were already putting plans in place to keep our interests piqued while they had our attention.
The result? A broad selection of music videos, remixes, follow-up singles, albums and EPs that have recently been dropped by our Class of '22.
That Difficult Second Single
They sadly left the Contest in the Second Semi-Final, but two artists are already firmly back in our hearts again: Ireland’s Brooke has come out with new single Tongues, while Israel’s Michael Ben David shows us a different side to him on לא להיות אני.
Following her participation for Greece, Amanda Tenfjord has released new single Plans, while Bulgaria’s Intelligent Music Project move out of their safety zone on their latest single and music video Hero. Also out with a follow-up song and an accompanying music video is Sweden’s Cornelia Jakobs, with Fine.
This Is The Remix
Releasing hot new remixes of their Eurovision tunes in the aftermath of the Contest have been Estonia’s Stefan, Finland’s The Rasmus, Italy’s Mahmood & BLANCO, Switzerland’s Marius Bear and the United Kingdom’s Sam Ryder. And we’re grateful for every single one of them.
And then who can forget when Chanel broke the internet the morning after the Grand Final, by releasing the Eurovision’s Dance Break Edit of the Spanish medal-place finisher SloMo. We just hope not too many limbs were broken, too, in the inevitable attempts to replicate the choreography…
Taking a bilingual approach to new versions of their Eurovision songs, meanwhile, were Slovenia’s LPS, who brought us an English-language version of their song Disko, and Montenegro’s Vladana, who has released a Finnish-language version of her entry Breathe, now called Jää.
EPs & LPs
After his moment representing France, Alvan seized the opportunity to finally release his debut album, Magma, an eight-track record featuring his collaboration with Ahez, Fulenn.
Germany’s Malik Harris has released the Rockstars Edition of his album Anonymous Columnist, while Poland’s Ochman has released a Deluxe Edition of his self-titled debut album, now featuring his Eurovision entry River plus two brand-new tracks.
Offering their new fans a more streamlined introduction to their music, we have Romania’s WRS, who has released the Mandala EP. Emma Muscat has the perfect sonic greeting for anyone who discovered her representing Malta in Turin with I Am What I Am; it’s her new collection of songs, I Am Emma. And Portugal’s MARO has put out a three-track selection for anyone who wants to investigate more from her after hearing Saudade Saudade.
Let’s Do A Duet
Taking a collaborative approach to sharing new music, Lithuania’s Monika Liu has paired up with Jauti for a new single, Ten, Kur Tu. We Are Domi have turned to a familiar name to Eurovision fans: They are Lake Malawi! The 2022 and 2019 Contest representatives of Czech Republic got together to release the new single and video High-Speed Kissing.
Take A Video. Watch It SloMo
Finally, we’ve got some new music videos for your perusal.
2022 Eurovision Song Contest champs Kalush Orchestra released the music video for their winning song Stefania; a sobering production that was filmed in their native Ukraine in recent months. 2021 Contest champs Måneskin have also released a brand-new music video, for their latest single SUPERMODEL, which they performed at the 2022 Grand Final in Turin.
San Marino’s Achille Lauro unleashed the music video for his Eurovision entry Stripper, a video which he’s literally titled 'Performance Art’. And honestly, who are any of us to argue with that?
And speaking of performance art, we end our round-up of new music releases with Space Kelly, a song which sums up Norwegian act Subwoolfer’s own experience of participating in the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, and which can also serve as a fond look-back over the last few months for all of us.
The title? Well, it’s their reimagining of the breakthrough hit of 2022 contest host Mika, Grace Kelly.
The 2022 Eurovision Song Contest was a surreal experience for many. But Subwoolfer are here to assure us that all of this really did happen.
