Today, it was officially revealed that Ira Losco has changed her Eurovision song. Instead of singing ‘Chameleon (Invincible)’ she will now sing a brand new song entitled ‘Walk on Water’; written by Ira herself, along with Lisa Desmond, Tim Larsson ,Tobias Lundgren and Molly Pettersson Hammar.
The latter name will be familiar to you all – 20 year-old Molly Pettersson Hammar is well known in Sweden. She has participated in Melodifestivalen twice – in 2015 with ‘I’ll Be Fine’ and this year with ‘Hunger’ which got to Andra Chansen. The same song writing team who wrote ‘I’ll Be Fine’ are also involved in ‘Walk On Water’, which is Molly’s first ever release only as a songwriter, as she revealed the news on Twitter today:
