The official TaP Music account on Twitter released the following announcement today:

According to this announcement, TaP music will no longer be part of the UK’s participation in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The exact reasons for the end of this partnership haven’t been mentioned.
However, the general climate of the post suggest that things ended on a positive side for the two of them.

Among their signed artists, we will be able to find: Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Dermot Kennedy, Leigh-Anne, Mabel, Noah Cyrus, CL, Christine and the Queens, Caroline Polachek and London Grammar and more.

The collaboration between the record label and the BBC has started in 2022.
Their first attempt led to one of the most successful UK’s entries in the contest:
Sam Ryder ended in the 2nd place with a total of 466 points

Last March, Mae Muller was internally selected to represent the UK, by a joint decision of TaP Music and the BBC.
She ended in the 25th place with a total of 24 points, performing “I Wrote a Song“:

In the years 2011-2015, 2020, 2021 the artists were internally selected.
