Gianluca Bezzina returned from Eurovision with the best result Malta has seen since 2005, and his song “Tomorrow” charted in countries throughout Europe including The Netherlands, U.K. and Ireland. The result was somewhat surprising considering that Gianluca is a medical doctor rather than a professional singer. But when evil critics who love to hate described it as “the feel good song of Malmö”, you knew a Top 10 finish was deserved!

Today Gianluca surprised his fans by announcing that he plans to release a debut album in the near future. He also revealed that, in between treating bronchitis and other assorted infections, he somehow managed to record and release a new singled called “I’ll be there.” Let’s have a listen.

The Michael Buble trumpets give “I’ll be there” a different flavour from “Tomorrow”—where is the ukulele? But fans of his Eurovision single will surely embrace this new release. Gianluca’s unique voice makes his new single as jolly as his first, and it channels the same feel good vibes we all hope for in a Gianluca track. It could help the crankiest old cow get her happy back!

The release of “I’ll be there“ has us even more excited for the album. Our Eurovision summer playlist of happy songs is growing pretty quickly, y’all!

“I’ll be there” lyrics

Don’t believe in words like soulmates
Or at the universe has a plan
So the day that we met I promised you that
I’d do the best I can

We’ve always had bright shiny weather
But now the sky looks grey
You’re beginning to doubt what we’ve been about
You’re drifting away

The world will only let you down
So there will be days you’re stuck in a corner
But you can always count on me

I’ll, I’ll be there
And no one will take me away
I’ll, I’ll be there
So believe me when I say

I’ll be there for your tears and your smiles
The lazy days or days of surpirses
I won’t care
I’ll just be there

You can hide yourself under the bedsheets
Or take a trip to Paris or Rome
But one thing is guaranteed,
That whatever you need is right here at home

The world will only let you down
So there will be days you’re stuck in a corner
But you can always count on me

I’ll, I’ll be there
And no one will take me away
I’ll, I’ll be there
So believe me when I say

I’ll be there for your tears and your smiles
The lazy days or days of surpirses
I…I won’t care
I’ll just be there

And then at night when you fall asleep
I’ll be with you in yoru dreams
Nobody’s taking me away
And I’ll stay
Then when you wake up
You’ll know it’s not made up
I will still be around

I’ll, I’ll be there
And no one will take me away cause
I’ll, I’ll be there
So believe me when I say

I’ll be there for your tears and your smiles
The lazy days or days of surpirses
I…I won’t care
I’ll just be there
I’ll be there
For you and me
For you and me
I’ll just be there
