On March 2, Cyprus’s Andrew Lambrou will release his Eurovision 2023 song “Break A Broken Heart” through Panik Records and City Pop Records. You can pre-save it by clicking here.
But ahead of that, you can already listen to a snippet of what sounds like a thoroughly impactful and contemporary entry.
We’re thrilled to share this exclusive clip, courtesy of the Cypriot broadcaster CyBC:
@wiwibloggs_official 💔 @andrewlambrou’s #Eurovision2023 song “Break A Broken Heart” is out March 2 from @Panik Records and City Pop Records. Pre-save now! #fyp #eurovision #cyprus #eurovisionsongcontest ♬ original sound – wiwibloggs
The clip shows Andrew’s journey from childhood to adulthood, moving from black and white to colour as he launches into his Eurovision journey.
The lyrics speak of perseverance and hint at strength developed through struggle. You can’t break a heart if it’s already broken!
You lift me up but leave me in the gutter.
Tear me up and move on to another.
I’m torn apart, but I am a survivor.
You can’t, you can’t break a broken heart.
You can’t break a broken heart
What do you think of the snippet? Are you loving his voice on the track? Let us know down below!
This is outdated. Not good.
It sounds promising
As an Australian, I’m (not so) secretly excited that in possibly our last year (let’s face it, EBU will renew the contract, but we’ll see officially after the contest I suppose), we have two and possibly three Australians representing countries. Lots of pride for me in that for a contest i love, but also I can’t help but think finally more televotes lol.
Inauthentic and generic like all Melofistivalen rejects. And in English even though Greek is beautiful Cyprus is turning into Azerbaijan.
Plus this guy is a bottom – God (and most ESC fans) dont like bottoms
Who ever told you that?
Your toxicity has burned our last good brain cells.
I’m glad that this will be the very first time in ESC history that both Greece (my country) and Cyprus are going to NQ in the semi-finals due to lack of motive, creativity and by using the same recipe of corruptive tactics (ERT) or melo-rejects (PIK), respectfully.
or both simply qualify because they are favourably in the same semi-final and likely to vote for each other. They both already have the advantage, irrespective of song quality.
Yeap because ONE 12 point exchange determines the result!
How pathetic that you all moan about Greece and Cyprus when all Scandinavians, Balcans etc exchange points and indeed determine the results!
the Scandinavians dont even exchange points so much like Greece and Cyprus. They ALWAYS give each other 12 points
Check how many countries didnt vote for Cyprus in 2018?
If you are glad, then you are probably toxic. Also, literally stop with all these not proved corruption allegations, its tiring.
We’ve only got a snippet to judge Cyprus’s song on and Greece’s song isn’t even out yet.
a voiceless gym gay with a ballad that’s clearly a melfest reject. no emotions whatsoever in those studio vocals. seems like a massive mismatch… oh well.
It is written by Swedes… and it shows
A depressed couch potato being bitter because someone is going to the gym and looking good. How sad.
Swedish reject, sure, but what’s wrong with gym? Xd
Some people go to the gym for health reasons, others for vanity reasons.
AND? How is it your business for what reason anybody goes to the gym? Is it illegal to go to the gym for good looks? Is the couch potato police disapprove that or something?
It’s a shallow and sad definition of what “good looks” are, with dangerous ramifications for society, gym-goers included. They can do what they like, but there’s no need to boast about it on social media as if it’s some sort of success to be proud of. It’s not even sexy. If you had good muscles from out working in the fields, farming, or doing something else productive… then it would be sexy.
That’s a WILD take!
Being fit is sexy, and there’s nothing wrong with showing your aesthetics online after putting in hard work. Whilst some don’t find fit, athletic or muscular guys sexy, the majority of people do. There’s research to prove that, see Dr. Brain Grants study if you’re interested.
It can be sexy, but what’s unsexy is the hours and hours of their lives they spend to get it. It signifies what their priorities are. Like I said, it’s good to go to the gym for health reasons, both mental and physical. Too many people overdo it, though. The trick is to know when to stop.
I hate going to the gym
But why should anyone stop? It is a healthy thing to do why would anyone should stop gping to the gym? Be fat if you want but there is no reason to criticize someone for going to the gym
Nobody should stop, that’s not what I mean. I just mean a healthy amount of hours a week. Don’t worry too much about how you look, just how you feel.
Being sexy is objective and mostly dictated by society anyway. Years ago being fat and pale was sexy. Fit people may look good but you gotta admit it’s kind of a turn off when people go to the gym just to show off on social media or elsewhere.
I don’t think he’s gay.
The snippet didn’t move me but what’s wrong with being gay or hitting the gym? xd
Voiceless?? Oh my dear… I was expecting any other comment than that! ha ha. I am a pianist and I must admit that his voice is flawless! Come on.
“Gym gay”. Apparently your comments are too casual. How do you know he is gay? “Gym”? Are you here to comment his voice or his shape? Come on. We’d like some quality comments.
Oh no… Not another generic, boring ballad….
Very basic! Day by day I feel that an Israeli victory is absolute! At the moment there is no competition for Noa Kirel, Sweden as usual will bring a generic club song… Israel brings a special song this time, this year is becoming easier for her as more and more songs are revealed. Quite amazing… I have to say..
Is the Israeli song available anywhere? I think we need to hear that first before jumpign to any conclusions.
This article is about Cyprus not Israel, it’s a different country . Israel only wins every 20 years , you have to wait until 2038 for your next victory . Thanks 🙂
It’s sounds very good for me. I am curious to hear the whole song
Imagine if Andrew Lambrou does better than Voyager, who both competed in Australia Decides last year
Not a bad song, not a winner song. Which means it is a safe choice which is worse for Eurovision.
Loreen saves us pleaseeeeee! It won’t be too hard to win this Eurovision edition. If not Loreen, then Alessandra.y Ultimate last hope lays in The Netherlands to bring the quality.
I don’t understand the hype over Alessandra. Her entry is dated, kitschy and generic.. maybe it would succeed in 2000 but not in 2023, music and world music moved forward since!! Still she probably advances to the final, as the level of this Year’s songs is very poor.. but in stronger year she wouldnt have a chance…
The 2000 vibe is very in right now though. People are nostalgic and still love those type of songs and they work great on a big stage. She will do well, because it’s just a fun tune.
I was really expecting something a bit more similar to Running (underrated btw) and I’m not sure there’s a lot you can do with this (based on the snippet).
This wasn’t an entry I had super high hopes for but, after this snippet, even my minimal hopes just got a little lower.
What’s this song about???…umm…a bicep
This is one big meh unfortunately! From this clip, nothing memorable. What’s going on this year? Where are the good songs? With this pace Croatia is going to win and it ain’t funny no more.
It was never funny in the first place. Just an abrasive way to spread a message.
It is so fascinating when they give us solution straight away in the same strophe. I’m torn apart, but HEJ I am a survivor. So simple, nothing to worry about :))
I was hoping for an up-tempo bop.
You just love hating under EVERY post don’t you?
That’s not a hate comment.
I mark down songs immediately that have shortened titles that mean the opposite of what the song is about. Shouldn’t the song be titled YOU CAN’T BREAK A BROKEN HEART instead of BREAK A BROKEN HEART?!?! This is one of my pet peeves.
This is officially the year of the young attractive, but boring, guys. I’m already fed up. Loreen, please win the Melfest.
Not a Gustaph fan then
Gustaph isn’t young to begin with
Sounds like a Melfest song that comes 6th in the semi.
From a chubby kid to a very handsome guy
This snipet and his voice are excellent and so fresh…
Greek is one of the most melodic languages, Greece has an amazing music industry yet they have been sending mediocre songs ever since Helena, with few exceptions. I think they need to reinvent themselves like France and Spain did by organizing national selections or changing the delegation. This is not working
You do understand that this is the cypriot entry, right?
Same. Cyprus IS Greece
The thing is that fans already have negative bias towards this guy, so everything that is not groundbreaking would be called NQ or generic. I personally find this teaser to be very promising.
Exactly what I thought. Fans make it a problem when Cyprus sends female uptempo bops but were also unhappy when both Sandro and Andrew were selected with (what seems to be) somewhat “slower” songs…
That’s fair tbh. Either “omg Fuego X.0” or “boring, wanted next Fuego, nq”. I’d personally take anything that’s even slightly different, do i’m happy with current selection
I do agree with you, but fans already had an idea of Andrew’s artistry and this just doesn’t do him any favors. Myself, I’ll be looking forward to listening to the whole song
This sounds quite promising actually…
Serge Lazarev 2.0, this snippet remember me Scream!
Love it so promising
I don’t mind people using the same Swedish songwriters, but the point is for it not to be obvious from the first snippet. This IS from the usual rotating team, right? Right?
How would you describe it?… Generic?
Andrew Lambrou, I had zero expectations for your song and those expectations have now been met. Well done I guess?
Hmmm it’s only thirty seconds but I think this doesn’t sound very promising…
So little already 30 seconds isn’t a good omen 🙁
Oh no, I expected something different…like an uptempo entry? This sounds like an unispired power ballad…
No wonder people always say there’s too many ballads when everything even remotely mid-tempo is ”a ballad”. I’d never call this a ballad. A mid-tempo mainstream pop.
Uninspired comment stands, though. From this snippet, at least.
Great vocals, mid song
Love it ??
The vocals sound very promising! I’m excited
