Eye Cue point out that it is “Too Late” for a difficult relationship on their latest single

Eye Cue point out that it is “Too Late” for a difficult relationship on their latest single

Eye Cue - Too Late

North Macedonia’s duo Eye Cue, who took part at 2018 Eurovision, is back with a new single “Too Late”. It is a pleasant electropop song about a woman, who is in control of her own life.

Back in 2018 in Lisbon, Eurovision fans had pretty high expectations to Eye Cue and their entry Lost And Found. Unfortunately, Bojan Trajkovski and Marija Ivanovska, failed to find their way to the grand final, as they finished 18th in their semi-final.

However, Eye Cue moved painlessly from the Eurovision disappointment as they had a very busy 2019. This year they have played in Australia and in London, where they recorded the latest single Too Late. It seems like London has become North Macedonia’s duo new home, as their previous two tracks from this year, Dancin and Love Me, Hate Me, also were recorded in UK’s capital.

Too Late is a contemporary and energetic track with focus on production, the variety of electropop sounds and Marija’s smooth vocal. The story of this quiet melancholic song relates to anyone, who moved on from a difficult relationship as Marija sings:

“I only want to be with me and if the phone ring ding ding, I’m not answering.”

“It’s too late for me and you
Now we’re done, we’re through
I’m gonna leave it behind
It’s too late, I guess it’s true
I’m gonna leave it, leave it behind”

Too Late has been written, composed and produced by Bojan Trajkovski. You can listen to the song in the video below:

Legendary Eurovision songwriter releases first solo song – at the age of 61

Legendary Eurovision songwriter releases first solo song – at the age of 61

Lise Cabble and Anna Ritsmar

Lise Cabble doesn’t need much introduction to followers of the Eurovision Song Contest. She participated four times, and won once. Since her band split up 20 years ago, she has been focusing on songwriting – but now, she just released her first solo song.

Fra Mols Til Skagen finished 5th in 1995. The same placement got A Friend In London in 2011 with New Tomorrow. In 2013, Emmelie de Forest’s Only Teardrops won – and this year’s Danish entry Love Is Forever scored a 12th place. All four songs are written by Lise Cabble.

Over the years she has participated quite some times in national finals in particular in her native Denmark, but also in Sweden and United Kingdom. She has become a legendary songwriter – and most see her as just that, a songwriter.

Before she threw herself 100% into songwriting, she was lead singer in the Danish band Miss B Haven from 1986. They split up in 1997, and Lise Cabble put all her focus on being the great songwriter she is.

At the age of 61, Lise today released her first solo single. It’s in Danish and titled Tjekker ind og ud (Checking in and out). On the following link you can check out the song on various platforms: https://thearrangement.lnk.to/Tjekker

The song is produced by Emil Lei who she has worked together with before (latest on this year’s Love Is Forever). So far the new single has received positive feedback from fans. When you do listen to it hear, you’ll hear that Lise sounds nothing like you might expect from a 61 year old. Her voice is young and fresh – yet mature, melodic and mysterious, just like the song.

If you want to get to know Lise Cabble a little bit better, you can check out our interview with her and Anna Ritsmar from the Danish final in 2018.

Doris Dragović premiered “Brod Za Nabolje” – 10 years after her latest video

Doris Dragović premiered “Brod Za Nabolje” – 10 years after her latest video

Doris Dragović - Brod Za Nabolje

Double Eurovision participant Doris Dragović is back with the new song “Brod Za Nabolje”. It is a modern ballad about unhappy love. It breaks a long period with no new music from the Croatian singer.

Five years after she launched her latest single, and ten years after her latest video, Croatian diva Doris Dragović is back with a new song and video.

Doris has previously participated in the Eurovision Song Contest on two different occasions. Back in 1986 in Bergen Norway, she represented Yugoslavia with the song ŽeljoMoja and finished 11th. 13 years later, in Jerusalem, Israel, Doris came back to the Eurovision stage. This time she represented Croatia with the song Marija Magdalena. She finished 4th in the final, which equals the best Croatian result in the contest. Back in 1996, Maja Blagdan also came 4th with the song Sveta Ljubav.

Brod Za Nabolje, which translates to Ship ForThe Better is written and composed by Ivan Huljić. If Ivan’s last name sounds familiar, it might be because he is son of Tonči Huljić, who in the past composed no less than four Croatian Eurovision entries: Nostalgija (1995), MarijaMagdalena (1999), Strings Of My Heart (2001) and Lijepa Tena (2009). Ivan and Doris have worked together for many years, including her latest album Ja Vjerujem from 2009.

Doris’ new song came as a big surprise, especially for her fans, whose reactions on Brod Za Nabolje are very positive. To the Croatian internet portal Index, Doris told, that she is not so much interested in how many views on YouTube her new song will achieve. She said that the beauty of the art and the soul is what matters to her.

Brod Za Nabolje is a typical Doris-ballad, where her pleasant and soft vocal is flourishing. In the video, Doris’ outfit reminds very much about her choreography in Jerusalem back in 1999.

In the video below, you can listen to the new song from Doris Dragović:

Vanna sings about tough love on her latest single “Kad Smo Se Voljeli”

Vanna sings about tough love on her latest single “Kad Smo Se Voljeli”

Vanna (Croatia 2001)

Vanna, who represented Croatia at 2001 Eurovision Song Contest, has recently premiered a new video for the song titled “Kad Smo Se Voljeli”. The song can be found on the singer’s new album, which was released at the end of last month.

Back in 2001 Vanna, whose real name is Ivana Ranilović-Vrdoljak, represented Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark, with the song Strings Of My Heart. She finished 10th in the grand final with 42 points.

Since Eurovision, Vanna was very active on the Croatian music scene as she released seven studio albums up to now. The title of her current album is Izmiješane Boje (Mixed Colors) describes very well the variety of many different music styles, such as pop, jazz, dance and folk, the album contains.

Kad Smo Se Voljeli translates to When We Loved. It is a modern, contemporary pop sang that tells a love story about a couple, who once promised each other to stay together no matter what. However, the story ends sad, as it looks like that the love, which once was so strong and unbreakable, simply faded.

The song is energetic and optimistic, although the topic of the song implies that nothing is so perfect as it looks. In the music video, the message of the song is presented by a young couple, who is rock climbing. It symbolizes a life path, where love is the driving force and where it is up to the young couple to discover their final goal.

Vanna

Vanna has written the lyrics for Kad Smo Se Voljeli, while Goran Kovačić composed the song. Kovačić is also connected to the Eurovision Song Contest as he back in 2007 co-wrote music for the Bosnian-Herzegovinan entry Rijeka Bez Imena.

Below, you can watch Vanna’s latest music video:

Host cities to meet urgent Friday deadline before final decision can be made

Host cities to meet urgent Friday deadline before final decision can be made

Rotterdam

Potential host cities Rotterdam and Maastricht have just four days to provide additional information as part of their official bids to host Eurovision. We will soon find out which city will be hosting the contest in 2020.

The selection committee, consisting of the NPO, NOS and AVROTROS have given potential host cities Maastricht and Rotterdam some additional questions to answer before they can decide who will host the Eurovision Song Contest next May.

It is not known exactly what these questions are, but the spokesperson for the municipality of Rotterdam said that the final questions “put the last dots in the I”. The two wannabe host cities have just four days to provide this information to the selection committee who will then provide their recommendation to the EBU.

The host city is expected to be announced in mid-August and fans will finally find out if they will be travelling to Rotterdam or Maastricht next Spring. When Duncan Laurence won the contest for the Netherlands this year, nine cities expressed their interesting in hosting the competition. However, once the initial requirements of the EBU were made known this swiftly dropped to five.

Last month Utrecht, Den Bosch and Arnhem dropped out, leaving just Rotterdam and Maastricht to battle it out. Winner Duncan Laurence has been spotted in both potential host cities recently leaving fans speculating as to what role he might play.

In the video below, take a look at a clip from Duncan Laurence’s rehearsal in Tel Aviv, Israel:
