Dami Im is “Fighting for Love” in her Eurovision follow-up single

Following her overwhelming victory with the juries at Eurovision 2016, she stuck around Stockholm and hit the studio.

And on Friday morning Australian pop star Dami Im proved that her extended trip to Sweden was definitely worth it as she released her latest single “Fighting For Love”.

The three-minute track rides the electronic dance wave that’s sweeping the charts worldwide, marking a dramatic shift in sound from Dami’s recent Carpenters tribute album.

And while the style may be different the delivery is once again fuelled by her signature powerDami, you ain’t gotta fight for our love — you already got it!

Once again the “Sound Of Silence” hitmaker worked with Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci (a.k.a. DNA Songs) — the geniuses behind her Eurovision 2016 track.

Heavy on synth and drums, the song has hit written all over it, building steadily to a memorable chorus. I dare you not to bob your head.

In the number Dami lets her lucky love know that she’s in it for the long-haul: “When the weight of the world is on your heart, no, I won’t let it tear us both apart, My love, I’m fighting for love…”

“Obviously we had the overseas market in mind for my first release after Eurovision and I work really well with the DNA boys,” she told News Corp Australia.

Dami, who recently won the wiwibloggs Vision Music Award for Most Likely to Succeed Commercially, seems to have undergone an edgy transformation to accompany the release.

In recent days she has shared a series of teasers and images with her 175,ooo Instagram followers, showing off her newfound swerve on style.

Among our favourite looks is the deeply plunging avant-garde dress, above, which hangs from skimpy spaghetti straps and shows off her silky décolletage and supple back.

In September the “Sound of Silence” singer announced that she had sold out her first national tour of Australia, prompting her to add encore dates in cities including Adelaide, Canberra and Melbourne.

“I didn’t expect my first national tour in Australia to sell out so fast and get such a positive response,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I’m thrilled to announce that NEW dates have been added in 2017! Tag your people that might have missed out.”

“Fighting For Love” lyrics — Dami Im

Hold me close when you love, love is low
I fill you up
Hold my hand, feel the spark
Start a fire in the dark
When the times, when the times are getting rough
When you feel, when you feel it’s all too much
My love
When the weight of the world is on your heart
No, I won’t let it tear us both apart
My love
I’m fighting for love
‘Cause love is the only thing I feel
I’m fighting for us
‘Cause you are the only thing that’s real
I’m fighting for love
(I’m fighting, I’m fighting for love)
I’m fighting for love
(I’m fighting, I’m fighting for love,
I’m fighting, I’m fighting for you)

(I’m fighting, I’m fighting for Love)

Don’t give up, don’t give in
When the fear’s creeping in
No matter what you think you’re facing
What we have is too strong
Feel it in, in my bones
When the times, when the times are getting rough
When you feel, when you feel it’s all too much
My love
When the weight of the world is on your heart
No, I won’t let it tear us both apart
My love
I’m fighting for love
‘Cause love is the only thing I feel
I’m fighting for us
‘Cause you are the only thing that’s real
I’m fighting for love
(I’m fighting, I’m fighting for love)
I’m fighting for love
(I’m fighting, I’m fighting for love,
I’m fighting, I’m fighting for you)

When the weight of the world is on your heart
No, I won’t let it tear us both apart
My love
I’m fighting for love
‘Cause love is the only thing I feel
I’m fighting for you
‘Cause you are the only thing that’s real
I’m fighting for love
(I’m fighting, I’m fighting for love)
I’m fighting for love
