The 2017 Irish Eurovision hopeful Bredan Murray has released his Eurovision entry Dying to try today.
Ireland has gone internal once again and selected Brendan Murray to defend the Irish colours at the Eurovision Song Contest. He will be flying to Kyiv with a ballad title Dying to try.
The track was co-written by renowned song-writer Jörgen Elofsson who has written songs for Westlife, Brittany Spears and Leona Lewis, and will be performed by Murray in the second Eurovision semi-final in Kyiv in May.
Twenty-year-old Murray is managed by Louis Walsh, who was centrally involved in the panel to select this year’s song from over three hundred entries.
