Olly Alexander finally reveals his Euro single Dizzy. So… would you like to listen?

Olli Alexander has released the song he will perform for the first time at this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

Back in December, the former Years & Years singer made a surprise announcement that he would represent the UK at Eurovision in 2024.

In the weeks since, he announced that his competing song would be titled Dizzy, finally unveiling the track on Friday morning.

Fancy a list? Go then…

Olly co-wrote the track with the music producer Danny L. Harley, whose recent credits include Houdini and Dua Lipa's Training Season, as well as work with Charli XCX, Rina Sawyama, Caroline Polachek and Liam Gallagher.

Perhaps not surprisingly, given the song's sound, he said Dizzy was inspired by '80s music, most notably Erasure and Adamski “and of course the Pet Shop Boys.”

Speaking about the songwriting process, Olly said: “We started with the word Dizzy because it just came to mind and I liked it. I was thinking of fun things that could make you feel dizzy and I remember saying 'You feel dizzy from your kisses/' So the song is about feeling such a swell Being so passionate about someone turns your world upside down and inside out.”

“Danny and I believe that music should transport you to a magical place and we wanted to describe this magical place in the song; A place of beautiful gardens, eternal flowers and time endlessly revolving in a loop of ecstasy.

Olly initially rose to prominence as the front man of pop band Years & Years, known for their hits including Desire, Shine, Sanctify, Starstruck and their debut single King. The group later became Olly's solo endeavor, and Dizzy marks his first release under his own name.

In addition to his music career, Ollie received widespread acclaim for his leading performance in Russell T Davies' drama It's A Sin in 2021.
