Evie Irie Announced For Australia Decides, plus Two Songs Released
Evie Irie will join Isaiah Firebrace on the Eurovision – Australia Decides stage. Isaiah was first revealed as one of the competing artist late last year, but his duet parter remained a mystery. Until now…
Charismatic, pop-punk newcomer Evie Irie will, along with Isaiah perform their self-penned anthem When I’m With You (pre-save now), which will be released February 4, alongside the TikTok Wildcard winner. Watch this announcement reveal from Isaiah’s socials:
Evie Irie said:
“If there’s one thing I like as much as creating music for my own projects, it’s writing with other artists for their projects: it’s not work, it’s just fun! So when Isaiah and his team asked me to do Eurovision with this random wonderful song called, When I’m With You, that we had such a great time writing together, I was seriously shook. I never EVER thought I’d have the chance to play at Eurovision and I just can’t say no to Isaiah.”
Isaiah Firebrace said:
“Sometimes life takes you on a very unusual journey. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined doing Eurovision – Australia Decides with Evie Irie but I am so thankful that our planets aligned and we get to do this together. We wrote the song together, we jumped out of a plane together and we want to represent Australia together. Being together is what the song is all about and what the world needs right now. I’m incredibly proud to being doing this with Evie – she’s so unique and so special… wait until the world gets to know her like I have!!!”
In other Australia Decides news recently there have been teasers and hints in Instagram stories , but two of the songs by the other performers have finally be heard by listeners. Voyager were first to release their 80’s electro pop meets metal anthem, Dreamer and Jude York’s inspirational I Won’t Need to Dream, complete with animated visualiser (realised by Olga Perlin).
ESC Bubble will be speaking with each of the artists over the next month and we can’t wait to bring you that content. But fans are obviously getting excited about Eurovision – Australia Decides, which will be hosted on the Gold Coast and broadcast live and exclusively on SBS and online on Saturday 26 February.
