We’re back for part two of ESCUnited’s new music round-up! Today we’re excited to present six more singles from the Eurovision class of 2022, alongside 21 additional singles and albums that dropped last month. Buckle up ESC fans, it’s about to get exciting!
Andrea – Stvoreni Za Ljubov (North Macedonia)
Andrea’s profile on streaming platforms will make you think that she’s been extremely busy since Eurovision, but many of the eight singles that dropped on June 14th are re-releases of songs with updated artwork to match her Eurovision cover for “Circles”. Of the uploaded singles, two feature lyrics only in Macedonian, and “Stvoreni Za Ljubov” was actually written by Aleksander Masevski who wrote Andrea’s Eurovision entry. What will Andrea release next? Don’t test her musical limits.
Malik Harris – you & i (Germany)
Malik recently wrapped up his post-Eurovision tour in Germany, and before the end of the month released his new song and music video “you & i”. The song is a radio-friendly pop song with an energetic beat which reminds listeners not to take things so seriously, have fun in life, and love who you are. The music video was directed by Robin Karow with Marie Kobylka as assistant director and Simon Klostermaier handling filming, the same crew that helped Malik film the music video for “Rockstars”. So if you’re looking for a new song for your drive home or pool party then look no further!
Vladana – Prevarena (Montenegro)
Montenegro’s Vladana has hit the ground running with her song “Prevarena”, which is a complete 180 from her Eurovision entry “Breathe”. “Prevarena” is a catchy electropop song in Montenegrin, and Vladana co-wrote the lyrics with the help of Magic Records founder Vladimir Danilović. The track was written by Serbian composer and keyboard player Boris Krstajić. The lyric video also shows off a number of photos of Vladana, which seem to have been taken prior to the song being recorded.
Pia Maria – I Know U Know (Austria)
Eurovision marked the beginning of Pia’s commercial career as an artist, and she’s wasted no time capitalizing on the visibility she gained from the contest. Her first single “I Know U Know” is a dark pop entry that utilizes a music-box like track throughout the chorus to drive home the creepy vibe of the track. The song was written by UK singer/songwriter Billy Locket, Felix Brunhuber, and Florian Fellier who also worked on the technical team for Austria’s Eurovision entry “Halo”.
MIA – STUCK ON YOU (Croatia)
Mia’s latest single is a big departure from her fairytale-pop song “Guilty Pleasure” – though it centers on a similar message of love and emotion. The track has electropop vibes with a bit of a disco groove, and was actually previewed at the London Eurovision Pre-party according to attendees. The song was written by Zoran Konević, with lyrics by Shridhar Solankim and the arrangement made by Vojislav Aralica.
MARO – like we’re wired (Portugal)
If you need more reasons to check out MARO’s new single “like we’re wired”, look no further than the official MTV twitter account who recently told their 17.2 million followes to stream the song. Just like her other releases, her new single showcases the unique tonalities of her voice paired with clever instrumentals that make it a perfect song for a relaxing day. The track was co-written with MARO by John Blanda, who also worked with her as part of the writing team for her Eurovision song “Saudade, Saudade”.
