Måneskin have shared details of a new single called ‘Supermodel’, which is set to be released next week.

The Italian rockers and Eurovision winners took to social media yesterday (May 4), to share the cover artwork and announce the single which will arrive on May 13. You can pre-save it here.

The track follows 2021 single ‘MAMMAMIA’, and will arrive the day before the grand final of the 2022 Eurovision song contest. The band, comprising Damiano David, Victoria De Angelis, Ethan Torchio, and Thomas Raggi, are set to perform during the interval at the event in Turin, Italy.

The four-piece are currently on a UK and European tour, and the rescheduled ‘Loud Kids Get Louder’ tour kicks off later this year and continues into 2023 after they were forced to postpone due to Covid-related issues. Shows are scheduled to take place across North America, Europe and the UK, also marking their first US headline tour.

Måneskin had previously said that the UK needs to step away from the cheesy pop of their past Eurovision entries to succeed. Frontman Damiano David instead insisted: “Send a band. You need rock and roll!”

Bassist Victoria De Angelis agreed: “You need a rock band. Someone who wants to do it properly and would take it seriously and are willing to give their best. I think that’s the most important thing.”

The UK entry this year is TikTok star Sam Ryder, who will perform his song ‘Space Man’.

Måneskin made their EMAs debut in November 2021 in Budapest, winning Best Rock Act and performed a ‘MAMMAMIA’ live.

They made history by becoming the first Italian group to win in the category, beating out the likes of ColdplayFoo Fighters and Kings of Leon.

“First of all we wanted to say thank you to all our fans and the people that have supported us,” they said in a statement. “We love you. But we also wanna say that people usually told us we are not gonna make it with our music, well, I guess you were wrong.”

The event was used to counter Hungary’s controversial anti-gay law and “stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community in Hungary and around the world,” according to Chris McCarthy, president and CEO of MTV Entertainment Group Worldwide.
