Summer is the quiet period for Eurovision fans as we wait for the new season to commence. Thankfully, the music will always continue and a number of Eurovision artists are still producing new songs for us to enjoy.

Contrary to the commonly perpetuated myth about the song contest killing careers, we’re always thrilled to report that singers associated with Eurovision are thriving.

Here is our latest weekly roundup with a selection of the songs released recently by Eurovision stars.

New music from Eurovision artists: 2024 | Week 22 part 2

With so many new songs this week, we’ve split the roundup into two smaller articles. You can find part 1 here.

Marcus & Martinus – Unforgettable

Following an Unforgettable top ten result at Eurovision 2024, Marcus & Martinus have now shared their fourth studio album. The previous three were released whilst they were between the ages of 13 and 15. Therefore, this is is the duo’s first LP since becoming full-grown adults, heralding in a more mature sound and a representation of where they currently sit as artists. There are 11 songs on the LP, including their Eurovision and Melodifestivalen 2023 entries. You’ll find a mixture of original tracks and covers — such as their emotional rendition of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” whilst K-Pop fans will recognise “Love Flow” as an English version of TAEMIN’s hit “Want.”

TVORCHI – “Shine”

“Cause maybe we don’t need the moon tonight / Feel the afterglow / Cause baby we don’t need the stars to shine / So Shine / Cover up the sky / You light up the night.”

TVORCHI are lighting the way and guiding us towards their new album that is set for release in September. “Shine” will be the opening track of the LP, acting as an introduction to the Ukrainian duo’s electro-R&B style. The theme of the song is about how each of us has the ability to brighten the day and overcome darkness, as the Eurovision 2023 act noted on Instagram: “Shine is a song about how the light within us shows the way in the darkest times. When you think you are lost – look inside yourself.”

Margaret Berger – “Libra girl”

Libras are known for seeking a sense of balance in their lives — though this means they could be just as self-indulgent as they are kind. And this is the conundrum that Margaret Berger faces in her latest single. Born on 11 October, making her a “Libra girl,” Norway’s Eurovision 2013 star is struggling to commit to a full-on relationship with someone else: “But I’ll never be the one / Who stays when it hurts / I wish we were enough / That I’d finally settle down […] I’m such a libra girl.” Musically, the song is a pure pop bop that will get you dancing in the chorus.

Lena – Loyal to myself

In the years since winning Eurovision 2010, Lena has had to navigate fame and the expectations of her audience. This hasn’t always been easy, with the German superstar previously opening up about her time in therapy and the battle with depression following social media scrutiny. With her sixth studio album, Lena shares more about her personal journey. But the overarching theme comes through in the title — Loyal to myself. Through the 13 songs, and four bonus tracks, Lena shows how she’s now more comfortable to create the music she wants and is returning to her authentic self.

The release of the LP comes in tandem with a new music video for “Good again.”

Edyta Górniak – “I REMEMBER”

“I REMEMBER” is the song that Edyta Górniak entered into Poland’s internal selection for Eurovision 2024, attempting a comeback 30 years after her participation in 1994. A classic ballad, the singer’s delicate vocal line is accompanied by piano and strings. Aside from a couple of lines in Polish, much of the song is in English: “Here and now / I can see the beauty of life / Need to try every way, to understand / Look around / And everywhere you are / Love is never far from your heart / Wе are the living waves / A spark with gracе from the sky.”

Carola – “Rör vid mig”

Long-time fans of Carola may feel a sense of nostalgia with her latest track, as it harks back to the 80’s sound that kicked off the Swedish star’s career. “Rör vid mig” (“Touch me”) is a pulsing synth-pop offering with a fire in its belly that powers it forward. In the lyrics, the Eurovision 1991 champion sings of connecting with her lover on a new level: “So give me courage to fall / When you dare, I dare / I want to give you everything I have.”

SALENA – “Picky Promise”

Following her duet with TEYA at Eurovision 2023, SALENA is now re-igniting her solo career. “Picky Promise” is a mid-tempo pop track with a lot of vigour behind the production in the chorus, including choral backing. This power goes in tandem with the lyrics, in which the Austrian singer stands tall as an independent woman who is happy to do her own thing: “You will never see me at a party / Home alone is where you’re going to find me / The way you’re looking at me doesn’t change a thing / Don’t need anything.”

Agnete Saba – “Lykkerus”

“Lykkerus” translates to English as “Rush of Happiness.” That’s exactly what Agnete Saba hopes everyone will experience when listening to her new song. Norway’s Eurovision 2016 star gifts us a delicious slice of summery pop that will be sure to get many in a feel-good spirit. Writing on Instagram ahead of the song’s release, Agnete noted:

“The song is about enjoying and appreciating the good people and the nice, fun and good moments in life. A happy song that I hope you like.”

byealex és a slepp – zekő

Hungary’s Eurovision 2013 entrant has dropped a trio of new songs alongside his band. They form the new short EP zekő, and each of them comes with its own visual lyric video. byealex és a slepp deliver three mid-tempo tracks but manage to give them each their own individual flavour.

Nathan Trent – “Just Another”

Nathan Trent has a short and sweet new song for us. “Just Another” is a chilled pop tune that would fit perfectly in a playlist for a lazy day by the pool. That being said, the lyrics are on the sad side. Austria’s Eurovision 2017 participant is trying to work out whether his feelings will be reciprocated or not: “Guess I’m in love / But then why am I not crying happy tears / Can it be love / Or am I the one who has to let it go / Am I in love or is it just another no?”

Evridiki & Mple – “Alithia Pes”

Evridiki is a three-time Eurovision participant for Cyprus. Whilst those were all solo endeavours, the singer has teamed up with Mple for this new song. Titled “Alithia Pes” (“Tell the Truth”), the duo speak to all those who have spouted so much nonsense that they’re starting to regard their own untruths as fact: “And the worst is not what you say / But why do you believe the lies? / No one is saved by lies / Tell the truth, don’t try to hide.”

Kaliopi – Album

Kaliopi is keeping the name of her latest LP very straight forward. Album contains 10 songs, including the two singles she released in 2023 — “Kad osvane” and “Znam.” The rest of the record primarily contains ballads with rock influences. But, there are also a couple of more upbeat numbers to enjoy — particularly opening track “Ela,” plus penultimate song “Daj, daj mi daj.” In addition, North Macedonia’s two-time Eurovision entrant has shared several music videos for these new songs, which you can find in the YouTube playlist below.

Hall of Gods feat. Ronnie Romero – “Devil Joy of Man’s Desiring”

Hall of Gods is a unique project by musician Rafael Agostino that fuses together classical music with heavy metal. “Devil Joy of Man’s Desiring” is a tribute to German composer Johann Sebastian Bach, featuring the melody of his Toccata and Fugue in D minor. This is mixed with a big dose of guitars and drums, along with gritty vocals from Eurovision 2022 singer Ronnie Romero.

Aram MP3 – “Poqrik”

Aram MP3 is dedicating his new single to his youngest child Sarah. “Poqrik” (“Little one”) is a gentle ballad that gradually builds, and features a harmonica solo in the bridge. Armenia’s Eurovision 2014 act sings of the joy that Sarah brings to his life: “You are the sun of the sky and a kiss / You give love with your smile / And great happiness / With your little heart.”

Jan Johansen – “Ögonblick i livet”

Swedish singer Jan Johansen is capturing a “Ögonblick i livet” (“Moment in life”) with his latest single. The Eurovision 1995 alumnus delivers a soft rock offering, with Johansen accompanied by  guitar and other percussion.

Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir & Atli Örvarsson – “Dare to care”

Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir will be better known to Eurovision fans as Silvía Night, Iceland’s iconic (and somewhat controversial) 2006 representative. Ágústa’s latest song couldn’t be further from that performance. The singer has collaborated with film score composer Atli Örvarsson to create the new orchestral ballad “Dare to care.” Accompanied by Sinfonia Nord, Ágústa sings of what people could achieve if we just loved a little more: “We must stop each other’s pain / We can break the chains / But only if we dare to care.”

The Video of Luchtballon by Joost (more or less) tells his Eurovision story, with a lot of hidden Easter Eggs, and went viral in the Netherlands.

I wasn’t much of a fan of some of these artists’ entries this year but looking at their other stuff there’s a lot of potential.

I think anyone like me over 40 will always think music and style pre-2000 was the peak of culture. Same goes for Eurovision entries. Younger artists make me cringe but I think I’m just showing my age.
