Dutch singer-songwriter and Eurovision Song Contest winner Duncan Laurence has released his new single, ‘Skyboy’.
Skyboy’ follows on from Duncan’s earlier releases ‘Electric Life’ and, ‘I Want It All’, and is the title track and third single from Laurence’s forthcoming album, set for release on May 26 this year, through EMI.
“A lot of people don’t grow up in an environment in which they can fully be themselves, let alone grow into the person they wish to become. The song ‘Skyboy’ is about breaking away from that environment, that life and its toxic people” explains Duncan Laurence.
“It’s about allowing and accepting yourself to start chasing your dreams and living your life the way you want to. Take your neon shoes to the city. Surround yourself with people who love you for who you truly are. And live the life you are meant to live: being fully and unapologetically you.”
‘Skyboy’ is written by Duncan Laurence together with his fiancé, songwriter Jordan Garfield, and producers Leroy Clampitt (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber) and Wouter Hardy (Duncan Laurence’s Arcade)
Duncan Laurence won the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with ‘Arcade’, which has since amassed over 20 billion combined global streams. The track took the #1 spot on Spotify’s Global Viral chart on release and ultimately took off on TikTok with now over 80 billion views on the platform. ‘Arcade’ has attained Gold/Platinum certifications in 37 countries, including Platinum in the U.S.
Duncan recently collaborated with singer/songwriter/producer and Eurovision 2022 break out star Rosa Linn, on ‘WDIA (Would Do It Again)’, which Billboard Magazine hailed as “an old-school post-breakup duet, showcasing the singers’ vocal skills.”
