Iceland: Greta Salomé releases English version of ‘Raddirnar’

Greta Salomé is the big favourite to win the Icelandic national final this Saturday. One day before this final of Söngvakeppnin 2016, she already released the English version of her song ‘Raddirnar’, which will be used in Stockholm, should she indeed win.

Our editor Neil MacInnes has followed Söngvakeppnin 2016 so far and states in our podcast show Scout Around it will be “a one-horse race” this year in Iceland. “It is all about Greta Salomé.”

In English, Salomé’s song is now called ‘Hear Them Calling’. She will also use this version in the national final. Do you like it?

And to compare, here is the Icelandic version which made it to the final:
