The Lithuanian Eurovision stars The Roop have delivered a variety of fierce and catchy tracks in their new album “Concrete Flower“, which has been released in May 2022. You can order the full album through this link!
On their official Instagram account, the band has now revealed the message behind “Every Second“, which is one of the songs from their latest album. The song alludes to their big Eurovision hit “On Fire“, with which they were supposed to represent Lithuania at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam, before the competition got canceled.
“On Fire” was one of the most popular entries chosen for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, with more than 11 million views on YouTube for their national performance and being in second place with the bookmakers, just before the betting odds were closed.
Not only was it the unique beat and sophisticated delivery of the song, that made it so popular but it also had a very special message about being “On Fire”, no matter if people don’t believe in you or think you’re too old. “Every Second” continues right where “On Fire” ended, as the band has now revealed on social media:
About the 9th song from our new album “Concrete Flower”. This song “Every Second” is like a sequel to “On Fire” where we boldly state that even if others say that we are out of date or in a situation of doom and gloom, we will still go our way. We heard many different opinions about ourselves, but they were not justified. Of course, it required great confidence in our ideas and inner strength not to give in to the influence of others. That’s why we wish to inspire our listeners not to lose their way and not to wait until someone gives you the right to live. Live your life to the fullest here and now, every minute, every second.
P.S. Don’t forget to have fun and sometimes to be funny.

In 2021, The Roop returned to the Lithuanian national selection Pabandom iš naujo! and won the selection by a landslide. With “Discoteque” they went into a different direction than “On Fire” but were still widely loved by the Eurovision audience and finished in 8th place in the Grand Final, giving Lithuania their second best result of all time.
You can now listen to “Every Second” and decide, whether it is a worthy successor to “On Fire“! Share your opinion with us in the comments and on our social media profiles @escbubble
