Emmelie de Forest, the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, has collaborated with Unser Song Für Österreich 2015 act Fahrenhaidt on their song ‘Wildfire’.
It shows the mature sound and style Emmelie has developed since her barefoot performance of ‘Only Teardrops’ almost two years ago.
“It was written in the ocean and written in the trees,” Emmelie tones wistfully across twinkly piano keys.
The production from Fahrenhaidt is exquisite and symptomatic of their focus on nature too.
Why is this important for Unser Song Für Österreich?
The really intriguing thing though? Fahrenhaidt have only announced one of their two songs for Unser Für Österreich.
And what better way to ensure you win than entering a former winner? Germany did give ten points to Emmelie de Forest after all.
Add that to a song that sounds like the perfect follow up to ‘Drunk Tonight’ and ‘Rainmaker’ and you might just have all the elements there for Emmelie to make a come back y’all!
What do you think? Do you enjoy ‘Wildfire’ or think Fahrenhaidt have something else planned for USFO? Comment below peeps!
