Achille Lauro has assuaged the hunger of many Eurovision fans by releasing the studio cut of his song “Stripper”, which will represent San Marino in this year’s contest. While the performance from the national final, Una Voce Per San Marino, has been available on YouTube since his victory, fans of the song can now listen to it across their music services of choice also.

“Stripper” is described as a punk rock song “based on the duality of man and woman”. The lyrics discuss ideas of gender and performance, full of the cultural references that are a trademark of Achille’s music. The lyrics, written by Lauro, speak from a female perspective on gender, sex, sexuality and desire.

San Marino’s Eurovision Journey
As one of the smallest countries in Europe, San Marino made its debut in the competition in 2008 with Miodio and the song “Complice.” Since then the nation has participated in the competition 11 times, thrice qualifying for the Grand Final, and secured its best result in 2019 with Serhat and “Say Na Na Na.”
San Marino’s recent participation saw Senhit (who represented the country in 2011, and had been set to do so again 2020) represent the country in 2021 with the song “Adrenalina.” At her performance in Rotterdam, she was joined by American rapper Flo Rida, and secured San Marino its second consecutive Grand Final qualification. San Marino placed 22nd overall in 2021, receiving a combined 50 points from the jury and televoters.
