Melodi Grand Prix 2020 winner Ulrikke, is back with a brand new song "Love You To Love Me".
After a one year hiatus from the music industry, Norwegian singer songwriter Ulrikke is back with a new release, dedicated to her boyfriend, Oskar. This is the third single so far in her discography, having previously released “Attention” in 2020 and “Falling Apart” in 2021, and Ulrikke couldn’t be happier to be releasing music again.
“Aaah, it feels amazing to finally release new music again! And I am so excited for everyone to hear “Love You To Love Me”. It’s truly like showing off your baby for the first time – both scary and awesome, and I really hope people will resonate with the lyrics. I wrote the song to my boyfriend, Oskar, but I think a lot of people will be able to connect to the song.”
Is a Melodi Grand Prix return on the cards for Ulrikke?
Ulrikke participated in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix for the first time in 2020, and won with “Attention” that was written by Ulrikke herself and Eurovision 2015 co-representative, Mørland. Many fans were hoping to see her back to Melodi Grand Prix in 2022, but it was just a little bit too soon, as Ulrikke explains.
“I truly love MGP and Eurovision. And there is no doubt, I wanna come back at some point! I mean, I got the biggest tease of Eurovision in 2020 before it got cancelled, so I have to try again. It’s all about timing, and this year was a little too soon, I think. Also, I’m too busy this spring playing in Mamma Mia. However, I’m really eager to stand on that big stage in MGP again soon. Maybe even next year? It all comes down to the song; I need to have a song I love as much and believe in as much as “Attention”. As of right now we don’t have that song ready. But… we are working on it.”
“Love You To Love Me” is available on YouTube and major streaming platforms from March 11th, 2022. Have you heard Ulrikke’s song yet? Let us know what you think of the song in the comments below!
