The United Kingdom’s Eurovision 2014 representative Molly will preview her Grand Final performance in Copenhagen in front of a televised global audience of 125 million people by releasing her debut single ‘Children of the Universe’ on April 28th.
Molly will also play a special Eurovision preview show at London’s Café De Paris on April 13th.
Already installed as one of the favourites to win this year’s event, ‘Children of the Universe’ is an uplifting anthem which allows Molly’s vocal ability to soar and shine. The first UK Eurovision entry to be entirely self-written by the performing artist since Katrina and the Waves triumphed in 1997, ‘Children of the Universe’ was inspired by Max Ehrmann’s poem Desiderata.
“As it says, I believe that we’re all important in some way, and that we all have a part to play in something bigger,” says Molly. “We just have to follow our heart and our instinct and see what happens.”
“I want to change preconceptions of Eurovision and make people who think it isn’t cool to think, ‘this is actually quite good’. And I want the people of the UK to be proud of me,” she continues. “But Eurovision is part of my journey: it’s not the journey itself.”
The digital release of the single will see ‘Children of the Universe’ packaged with an extended version of the song together with a remix.
