In February, female singer/songwriter Ira Losco had the opportunity to co-host the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest alongside Gianluca Bezzina. This was the role of a lifetime, and one which they were asked to reprise for the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, an opportunity which they jointly declined due to other plans, including Gianluca's participation with L-Aħwa and the possibility of Ira Losco's return to the competition.

In a recent interview with Wiwibloggs, Ira Losco went on record stating that the timing of a possible participation in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest was inadequate with two singles yet to be released off her latest studio album "The Fire", before work on new material officially commences. Seen as a massive means of exposure to the international music market, the singer/songwriter does not rule out a possible return in 2016, but only with the right song.

Following Amber's victory at the 2015 Malta Eurovision Song Contest, Ira Losco sent out a message of congratulations to the whole team of "Warrior", including Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca, stating that it was a deserved victory, and she will be backing the whole entourage.

Since her return to the local music scene, Ira Losco has been nothing short of excellent, performing to sold out crowds and organising quite a handful or media related activities with meet and greets, interviews and also special appearances. As summer strikes midpoint, the female singer/songwriter, currently touted as a possible participant in the 2015 edition of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest has just released a music video, one in support of her latest single "Shouldn't Have to Bother".

Produced by The Bigger Picture and directed by David Serge, the music video is extremely seasonal with no real premise or story, except that one should enjoy life without a care or worry in the world. In less than 24 hours, it has already amassed more than 7,000 views on viral website, YouTube showing the level of support that the female singer/songwriter commands in Malta. We urge you to stay tuned to even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from the local music scene.

Malta: Ira Losco Teases New Material

Fortune Teller was the third studio album released by Ira Losco in 2008 and managed to spawn five successful singles, the last of which being, Elvis Can You Hear Me? leading to an indefinite hiatus. This element has become somewhat necessary in order to get the chance to regroup and see what typical listeners are expecting and indeed, Ira returned in the summer of 2012 with a brand new single entitled What I’d Give which was extremely different to the songs presented in the past noting that there was a reggae vibe from a performer who had become predominantly reliant on pop/rock. Her upcoming album set for release in a couple of weeks time entitled The Fire promises the change which will define Ira Losco.

Howard Keith of Jagged House Studios is the producer behind the brand new album and it seems that the anticipation continues denoting that her fans have been amazed by recent live performances given at the Summer Music Festival in August as well as the Christmas in the City given in December. Ira Losco garnered fame in the local industry following her representation of the country at the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest and despite her first runner-up finish, she has never looked back and with a brand new image, she is keen on continuously doing what she does best and that is to write and perform music. In a brand new teaser video published yesterday, Ira Losco alongside her band is seen recording the tracks Shouldn’t Have to Bother as well as the title track, The Fire. The clip does not feature the tracks in their final mixes due to the behind the scenes nature of the clip. She is set to perform a brand new single entitled The Person I Am at the Malta Music Awards on the 3rd February at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre in Ta' Qali. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news about Ira Losco as she continues her comeback in the local music scene.
