Olly Alexander announces new solo single & Eurovision entry ‘Dizzy’, out March 1st




Olly Alexander has today announced details of his new solo single, ‘Dizzy’, which is available to pre-save now and will be released on Polydor Records on March 1st. ‘Dizzy’ also marks the UK’s official entry for the legendary Eurovision Song Contest, taking place in Malmö, Sweden, on May 11th. 

Written by Olly and seminal electronic producer Danny L Harle, ‘Dizzy’ receives its first, tantalising preview today after news of Olly’s involvement hit the headlines this December: stay tuned for more to follow soon…

As he embarks on the first release under his own name, Olly Alexander remains one of the world’s most pioneering modern pop stars. Across three hugely successful albums to date, the singer, actor and fashion icon has scored 2 #1 UK albums, 10 UK Top 40 singles and was recently awarded the BRIT Billion Award (with 6.5 billion streams globally). With Years & Years evolving into a solo project and, beginning with ‘Dizzy’, a brand new solo era, Olly has become a once-in-a-generation voice: the Russell T Davies show ‘It’s A Sin’ won Best New Drama at the National Television Awards, with Olly also nominated for Leading Actor at the 2022 BAFTA Television Awards. Having headlined arenas and festivals worldwide – not to mention collaborating with the likes of Sir Elton John, Kylie, and Pet Shop Boys – Olly Alexander’s icon-status recently saw him immortalised at Madame Tussauds London: a fitting home for a pop star who has helped change British culture forever, and now represents the UK on the Eurovision stage.

Upon news of the ESC launch, Olly commented: “I’ve loved watching Eurovision ever since I was a little kid and I’m beyond excited to be taking part next year. As a young boy I always looked forward to this incredible event of unbridled joy, the wonderfully chaotic mix of musical styles, theatrical performances, heartfelt emotion and humour. I really can’t believe I’m going to be a part of such a special legacy and fly the flag for the UK in the gayest way possible, it shall be an honour! I’ve wanted to do this for a long time and it feels like the right moment to start releasing music under my own name. I’m determined to give it everything I’ve got and put on an excellent and unforgettable performance for you all!”
