Anouk unveiled her song today for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. The song Birds was presented during a live press conference which was aired live on Sterren radio.
Today at 10:00 CET in Hilversum, a press conference was held to reveal the Dutch entry for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. Singer Anouk caused a huge stir when she announced she would be representing the Netherlands and her song Birds is one of this year’s most awaited due to her previous career as a superstar both at home and abroad.
Anouk was chosen to represent the Netherlands with the song Birds at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. Anouk has been a regular figure on the Dutch music scene since her début pan-European hit Nobody’s wife in 1997. Over the years, she has released 30 singles and seven albums, some of which have made Number One. Dutch TV’s decision to select her internally was an interesting one, as she has a pedigree that could lift the country’s fortunes out of the doldrums.
At a press conference today in Hilversum, Anouk finally revealed the song Birds to the world. While Anouk’s styles down the years have varied, this song is a ballad with dark elements. It comes from her next album, Sad singalong songs, due for release on 17 May.
