dami-im-fighting-for-love-new-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.

Tomorrow ??? #FightingForLove #FFL

A post shared by Dami Im (@damiim) on

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.”

You can read the lyrics to Dami’s latest track below.

“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

After listening to the song for more than 300 times (only Google Play counted 311 plays now, but there’s also Spotify, YouTube/VEVO, and the downloaded off-line version which I’ve been listening to), I can say I still don’t have enough. The song was love at first listen, and I keep listening to it on repeat when I only can. There should be definitely released an extended edit (and some other remixes, additionally to the instrumental version I’ll get on the CD). Surely after that I want to hear more collabs between Dami and DNA. There are however two things that… Read more »

Sweden and Malta watch out, juries will work hard for Australia to have them win Eurovision and will say bye-bye to you….

As an Australian and Dami’s fan, I absolutely hate this song… I don’t hate her – I hate DNA, the people who wrote and produced this. They churn out the same crap over and over again because it ‘works’. Same hooks, same beats, same electronica. She needs to break off from DNA because they cannot write a good song to save their lives. It’s so frustrating.

Btw, the YouTube video and/or Spotify link might not work for viewers in some parts of the world. 🙂

Her ESC-song was actually my no. 43 this year. I didn’t “Hate” it. But found it VERY unoriginal, boring, generic and cliched…far to tailormade for ESC!

I find this song much more interesting. Good rhtyh, cool production. More really modern (I know many people call her ESC-song modern. THat is good, but I didn’t find it that modern). And just..better. In my opinion.

Too bad she didn’t have a song like this in ESC….

A great new song, and very different style, from Dami, and I love it! She’s certainly proved the she’s got the voice and doing this dance pop track further highlights her versatility over a broad range of music genres! Go Dami, you certainly seem to be in it to win again, and I hope that Europe is watching and listening to what you are doing.

I wonder when / if the first video will be available for me. It currently says “This video is not available”. But well, it doesn’t matter that much at this moment, as I can enjoy the song on both Spotify and Google without any distraction from the video.

Love it. Reminds me of Poli Genova’s ILWAC stylistically. And that’s a good thing

Her song was very modern, stupid televoters not supporting Australia!

Anyway, she would need to promote her new single as ESC was months ago and the hype is gone.
