The singer himself also celebrated the news on Instagram.
There, he asked fans: “what are you expecting from this new song?”.
SRF have been remained somewhat secretive about their plans for Eurovision 2021. In December 2020, SRF confirmed that Gjon’s Tears had chosen his song — teasing that it would make its premier this Spring. The broadcaster also confirmed that in total, 13 songs from writers and producers across Europe were up for consideration for the Swiss ticket. All of the songs were judged through a two jury selection system: 20 international music experts and 100 Eurovision experts voted and gave feedback about Gjon’s potential songs.

Gjon Muharremaj and his tears were one of the biggest fan favourites of Eurovision 2020. Last year, the Swiss-Albanian superstar was due to sing “Répondez-moi” in Rotterdam. And after topping polls and making waves with the bookmakers, it came as no surprise when SRF once again internally selected Gjon’s Tears to return in 2021. The title, genre and language of his track are yet to be discovered.
Switzerland’s Eurovision 2021 entry will be released on Wednesday 10 March at 4:00 PM CET.
