ESC Bubble are pleased to report that James Newman will be once again be representing The UK at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The artist who was due to represent The UK last year will once again be representing his country. James said that his new song this year, to be announced next month will be “positive and upbeat”. James added:
“I need to finish what I started,”
“I was so gutted when it got cancelled last year, and I didn’t get the opportunity to go to Rotterdam and sing on stage. I instantly wanted to take part again.”
As we reported last year, James has been writing some more songs with the same team that he wrote last year’s entry “My last breath” with.
Talking about the songwriting process James said:
“I feel like everyone wants a party and to have some fun so when I was writing, that’s what I had in my head. I wanted something people can dance to, even if it’s just in their kitchen”.
“The whole songwriting process has obviously been a little bit different. I’ve had to adapt to writing in a slightly different way because everything has been online.
“I took it slowly over the summer and then started writing in the autumn, thinking about what to do after the hard times.”
James added that the best thing about his Eurovision experience last year was the “fan community” that surrounds the contest.
“Those fans brought me into the Eurovision world. Everyone is so welcoming. I knew the basics of Eurovision but didn’t realise how many people lived and breathed it.”
Super happy to announce that I’ll be representing the UK at the 2021 @Eurovision song contest! (for real this time!)
