Brequette, a female singer/songwriter from Spain who tried her luck in representing Spain in this year's edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, with the song "Mas", eventually missing out by the slimmest of margins and finishing in second place, has just released a brand new single. "Puzzle Together" is very similar to global hit "Love On Top", performed by Beyonce, and features a fusion of pop, soul and that bit of rhythm and blues. The combination of the genres is extremely infectious and signals a positive move by the singer/songwriter.

The brand new single, which is currently available for purchase on both iTunes and Google Play is released by Warner Music Spain, the record label which in the past has provided us with El Sueno de Morfeo and Pastora Soler, the latter finishing in tenth place at the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Baku, Azerbaijan. Brequette is being touted as a possible future representative for Spain, especially after finishing in second place with the public and first place with the panel of professional judges, which we remind you included superstar, Monica Naranjo. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.


Sony Music, Warner Music and da Works have announced that they may potentially boycott the Norwegian national final after a new ruling from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) in collaboration with record label Universal Music have announced that all competing songs in the Eurovision Song Contest are to be released as a part of the official album as well as single tracks available for download.

All profits from the Eurovision Song Contest songs will then bypass other labels and go directly to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Universal Music. Understandably, this has irked many in the music industry as Eurovision Song Contest songs are a guaranteed revenue generator. However, it has been cited that representatives from record companies have been forced to sign into this agreement. This has certainly been the case for Carl Espen whom would not have been able to represent Norway if the agreement had not been signed. 

Leif O. Ribe from Sony Music told Norwegian newspaper VG that it also creates difficulties for record companies to promote their artist in other countries. Executive Producer for the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) Jan Ola Sand, has said that all countries were made aware of this but Norway is not the only country to react negatively. Regardless, this may have future implications for entrants to the Eurovision Song Contest. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

Germany: Warner Music Proposes The Baseballs

The Baseballs, a predominant band based in Germany whose genre of rock and roll has made a splash across the whole continent, is apparently being touted as one of the acts to compete in the German national final for the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. The groups' debut studio album, Strike, released in 2009 managed to enter the charts at several top ten positions in around nine countries. The success would be repeated with the third studio album, Strings 'n' Stripes, released two years later which managed top ten positions in seven countries.

ARD, the German broadcaster responsible for the participation of Germany at the International Competition is yet to reveal any details with regards to the acts putting their name forward for the pre-selection process. It is expected that a press release will follow in the next couple of weeks as the line-up is being finalised by the broadcaster in conjuction with major record labels. Lou Bega, a one hit wonder has also confirmed his interest into possibly going to the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of Germany, with the hope of rekindling his career. Another group who is being pushed into the process is Mrs Greenbird who had a number #1 album earlier this year. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com about the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.
