🎶 Eurovision music round-up: November 2022

Other Highlights

There is way too much music released every month to cover in-depth, but here are some of the best and biggest new tracks from other Eurovision artists:

Jurgis DID – “You Are Worth Saving (feat. Pranas Emilijus & Erica Jennings)”

Jurgis DID was a member of Lithuania’s 2010 representatives InCulto. Erica Jennings was a member of 2001 entry SKAMP and, perhaps more notably nowadays, a fan favourite during this year’s Lithuanian National Final. They also are former partners, having separated last year. That hasn’t stopped them from working together however, with new track “You Are Worth Saving” featuring both of them and their eldest son Pranas. It is a beautiful, gentle track in which the three voices are accompanied by a ukulele and a guitar. In a post on Instagram, Jurgis DID writes about the song that:

Although we must walk our own paths, we are never truly alone. Even when we find ourselves in the deepest darkness, we never really know who we are holding a light up to.

I am blessed to have had this experience. This song is an expression of a healing journey shared with my eldest son, my father, my former wife @ericajenningz – mother of my children, and many others.

Loïc Nottet – “Mélodrame”

Loïc Nottet represented Belgium in 2015 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. While usually singing in English, latest release “Mélodrame” (Melodrama) is in French. The Belgian’s strong vocals are backed by the dark electropop sound we’ve come to expect from him, but the production sound bigger and more, well, dramatic than ever. In an interview with Wallonian broadcaster RTBF the singer revealed that “Mélodrame” is the first single of his third album, which will be entirely in French and released in Spring of 2023.

Jüri Pootsmann – “Suveööde unetus” (LP)

Last month, I covered Jüri Pootsmann’s final pre-album single “Vaata Mind,” and now the album is out! Jüri marked the release of the album by releasing a visualizer for title track “Suveööde unetus” (Sleepless Summer Nights). The track continues the slightly more colourfuln and at times even groovy sound that Jüri has shown in pre-album releases such as “Vaata Mind”.

Jeangu Macrooy – “Summer Moon” (LP)

Jeangu Macrooy also released an album this month. The singer-songwriter announced the album a mere two months ago, together with his release of album track “Paris”. Dreamy and intimate like a late summer night, Jeangu says about the album in an interview with LINDA that he “really wanted to return to my souls-roots”. Shortly after the release of the album, Jeangu Macrooy released a live version of the title track on YouTube, which you can watch here:

Anna Bergendahl – “Merry Christmas Everyone” (EP)

Melfest regular and 2010 Swedish representative Anna Bergendahl has released “Merry Christmas Everyone”. You can read more about the 6-track EP here:
