After dropping details day by day over the past two weeks on her social media channels, Australian musician Montaigne finally unveiled her Eurovision 2021 entry “Technicolour” on ABC radio station Triple J.
While the full song will be released tomorrow on official streaming channels, Triple J listeners were able to listen to the full track, while Montaigne also posted a 15 second teaser.

“Technicolour” will also be premiered live by Montaigne at the 2021 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade, to be held on Saturday, March 6, 2021, at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Though a socially distanced concert, Australian broadcaster SBS will also showcase the Parade live.
After Eurovision 2020’s cancellation, Montaigne was selected internally to represent Australia for 2021. She won Eurovision – Australia Decides in 2020 with “Don’t Break Me.”
“Technicolour” represents a different approach to “Don’t Break Me,” with Montaigne writing a faster and campier track with David Karam Haddad (Dave Hammer).
The newest nation to the Eurovision club, Australia’s best performance since their debut at Eurovision 2015 has been Dani Im’s 2nd placed “Sound of Silence” at Eurovision 2016.
Montaigne, born Jessica Alyssa Cerro on August 14, 1995, broke out in Australia with her 2016 album “Glorious Heights.”
