IRELAND – Ireland’s Eurovision star Lesley Roy has come back fighting in her inspiring new single ‘I’ll Be Fine’. The Balbriggan singer sadly failed to progress to the finals of this year’s competition but that defeat has failed to dampen her spirit. Lesley’s upbeat track focuses on triumph over adversity as Lesley resolves to ‘dance it off my mind’ and ‘see the sunshine in the rain’.
The lyric video released on Friday night shows a number of photos of Lesley spanning from her childhood to the present day, symbolizing that throughout life we will always be overcoming some struggle or other. The fabulous new song comes out as Lesley has announced a new gig in Dublin’s The Grand Social on October 13.
Ireland crashed out of this year’s Eurovision in the semi-final despite Lesley’s powerful performance of her song ‘Maps’.
In the days following her exit, the singer showed off her sunshine disposition and take-it-on-the-chin attitude as she thanked the public for their support. Proving she can take a joke, she followed up her heartfelt post with a good-humored tweet about her key props during her live performance.
‘Two treadmills for sale … will take best offer!’ she joked on Twitter.
Editor’s note: We heard the song during our ride back from our 27/6 and we couldn’t immediately dance to it inside the car while it was clear for me and Alex that this should have been in Eurovision or at least submitted to ASC. But Eurovision is not the end of life and this song is definitely a Kickstarter for a new round of success for the Irish gem.
