Olly Alexander releases first teaser for Eurovision song Dizzy

Musician Olly Alexander has offered a first teaser for his new single Dizzy, which he will perform at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024.

The Years and Years singer is the UK’s entry for the 68th edition of the popular singing contest.

On Wednesday, he announced the name of the song he will perform at the competition and said it will be released on March 1.

Alexander posted a photo of himself on a swing to his social media account, captioned: “Dizzy – My brand new single is coming March 1st !! I actually can’t wait to perform this on the Eurovision stage.”

He later posted a clip that showed him singing the song, co-written with producer Danny L Harle, while dressed in a pin-striped outfit, wearing a large, orange and brown broach.

The lyrics to the track include “Won’t you make me dizzy for your kisses” and “Will you take my hand and steer me.”

He said in a post: “Hello ! here’s the first tease of my @eurovision song ‘dizzy’.”

The Bafta-nominated actor’s slot in the competition – taking place in Malmo, Sweden – was announced during the Strictly Come Dancing final in December on BBC One.

Over the past decade, pop superstar Alexander has scored five top 10 UK singles and two number one albums with his band, Years and Years.

He has also starred in a number of TV programmes including the seventh series of teen drama, Skins, and Channel 4’s It’s A Sin, which saw him receive a Bafta nomination for his role as Ritchie Tozer.

Pop singer Mae Muller represented the UK last year at the contest, held at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena, and came second-to-last with track, I Wrote A Song.

All three live Eurovision 2024 programmes – both semi finals and the grand final – will be broadcast on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on May 7, 9 and 11.
