Olly releases “Dizzy” for all to see.

So, After the tease that Olly and the BBC put out a couple of weeks ago, we finally get the official press release from the BBC about “Dizzy”

Today (1st March) Olly Alexander has launched his brand new single “Dizzy”, which is the song that will be representing the United Kingdom later this year, in May, at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden.

Olly Alexander said :

I wrote the song last summer with Danny L Harle, we started off with the word ‘Dizzy’ because it just popped into my head and I liked it. I was thinking about fun things that could make you dizzy and I remember saying “dizzy from your kisses” so the song is about feeling such an intense swell of emotion for someone they totally turn your world upside down and inside out. Danny and I believe music should transport you somewhere magical and we wanted to describe this magical place in the song; a place of beautiful gardens, eternal flowers and time turning endlessly in an ecstatic loop. We took the feeling of Dizziness and put that into the production, so there’s a lot of undulating arpeggios, lilting harmonies and counter rhythms in the backing vocals. We were inspired by a lot of music we love from the 80’s like Erasure, Adamski and of course Pet Shop Boys.

Dizzy is written by Olly and seminal electronic producer Danny L Harle, and the music video was directed by Colin Solal Cardo. ‘Dizzy’ marks a dynamic new era from Olly Alexander. Across three hugely successful albums, 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 creative chapter, 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 stage of childhood-dreams.
