What better way to get us in the Eurovision mood than a listen to the UK entry in full?.


On Friday 1st March, Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander, who'll represent the UK at this year's song contest, released the full track and video for Dizzy – the song he'll be singing.

"I wrote the song last summer with Danny L Harle, we started off with the word 'Dizzy’ because it just popped into my head and I liked it. I was thinking about fun things that could make you dizzy and I remember saying 'dizzy from your kisses' so the song is about feeling such an intense swell of emotion for someone they totally turn your world upside down and inside out," he said.

Could this be the song to get the UK their first win since 1997?

Olly Alexander will be performing his song Dizzy at Eurovision 2024.

He released the full track and accompanying video on Friday 1st March 2024.

Speaking of the song, which he co-wrote with Danny L Harle, Olly said: "Danny and I believe music should transport you somewhere magical and we wanted to describe this magical place in the song; a place of beautiful gardens, eternal flowers and time turning endlessly in an ecstatic loop. We took the feeling of Dizziness and put that into the production, so there’s a lot of undulating arpeggios, lilting harmonies and counter rhythms in the backing vocals. We were inspired by a lot of music we love from the 80’s like Erasure, Adamski and of course Pet Shop Boys.”

Following the release, viewers flocked to the comments to share their thoughts with one YouTube user writing "Olly is on the point as he used to! This song is a real refreshment."

Another commented: "'I'm SOOOO excited. The snippet is amazing. I remember blasting years & years back in 2015, and now Olly is representing uk at eurovision. I'm so proud of him."

You can watch the video below:

The release comes after Olly shared a teaser of the track on Wednesday 7th February.

"Hello ! here’s the first tease of my @eurovision song ‘dizzy’ !! ???? oh i’m so excited !!!! i love you !!" he wrote alongside a video of him singing the chorus.

In the video clip, Alexander could be seen performing the song on a rooftop at night-time wearing a pinstripe jacket with the sleeves cut off, a matching skort and a homemade rosette badge.

He sang: "So won't you make me dizzy for your kisses / Will you take my hand and spin me / Round and round until the moment never ends."

Back in December, Olly revealed that the song was "not a ballad" but would be "electronic, something you can dance to".

It was co-written by Alexander and Danny L Harle, who has produced hits for likes of Dua Lipa, Chic and Charli XCX.

Olly Alexander was confirmed to represent the UK at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest during last year's Strictly Come Dancing final.

As he appeared in the studio to read out the the terms and conditions for the vote, he casually dropped the news that he’s representing the UK in Eurovision 2024.

The song contest will take place in in Malmö, Sweden, following Loreen's second win last year.

Eurovision 2024 will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in May.
