Kurt Calleja is a firm favourite of ours here at Eurovision Ireland since we met him in Baku at Eurovision 2012. Since then we have continued our “Bromance” with the Maltese singer. You can imagine our excitement when Kurt mailed us today with his new video!
“Love On Mars” is Kurt’s new song that was released yesterday. If you want your music full of swing, pop and dance beats – then this song will have you jumping over the moon.
The song is composed by a new Maltese talent Chris Attard and is the title track from Kurt’s new album “Love on Mars”.The song was produced by Mikael Gunnerås who was one of the writers on Kurt’s Eurovision entry “This is the Night”
The song is a mixture of genres that on paper should not work but Kurt puts his own spin on the song. The movement of the song from swing to pop to dance makes it interesting and instantly enjoyable. There are not many songs like this in the charts so we think this puts other Swing offerings from the likes of Robbie Williams to shame.
I am not sure how Malta does it but they have a magic touch of making the cutest videos for their Eurovision heroes. This is no exception with the age-old story of young love triumphing.
