Back on October 23rd 2020 Daði Freyr and his team revealed that he will represent Iceland again for 2021 edition of Eurovison. He won national selection Söngvakeppnin 2020 and became fan favourites for Eurovison 2020 but sadly the contest was cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic.
RUV (Iceland’s national broadcaster) revealed the date when Eurovison fandom will hear their entry for Eurovison 2021.
Daði Freyr, leader and main vocalist, is now putting now the final touches to the song they will bring us next May. The singer and composer has stated they’re in to win:
‘This is a competition so we have the mentality to win this. The most important thing is to get to the finals so there’s a party here on Saturday. I do not see the point in competing in a contest if you do not intend to win,’ said Daði in a conversation.
Daði Freyr and his team are now working hard to finish their entry in the next few days. Also, they’re planning the outfit and staging for the contest and will record a music video, which will be released by the end of March. Also , Daði og Gagnamagnið will be launching a videogame where they will have the main role.
Daði says that it is a different feeling to compose a song now that he knows will be Iceland’s contribution: “We know that we are going into the real competition, so it can be justified to put everything into this. I have a lot ready that I did not have last time. You can plan things further ahead instead of going to the preliminary competition without knowing if we will go through,” he says.
RUV will be broadcasting special mini episodes about the history about Daði og Gagnamagnið on February 27th,March 6th and premier the song on March 13th.
