It was confirmed last year that the Years & Years star will represent the UK at this year’s Eurovision and promised that he will “fly the flag in the gayest way possible”.

Alexander co-wrote the song with Danny L Harle, who recently produced Dua Lipa’s comeback hit ‘Houdini’ alongside Tame Impala leader Kevin Parker.

Having explained that he had wanted to do Eurovision for “a long time”, Alexander discussed his entry in an interview with the BBC. “It’s gonna be electronic, something you can dance to,” he said.

“But I can’t say much more than that. I just can’t wait to get out there and meet the fans and everyone else taking part. It’s going to be the wildest experience of my life.”

He also told the BBC that it marked the beginning of releasing music under his own name, adding that he had “wanted to do it for a while” and it “felt like this was the right time to start releasing music under my name”.

Eurovision 2024 will take place on Saturday, May 11 in Malmö, Sweden – the hometown of current winner and Rolling Stone UK cover star Loreen.
