Sergey Lazarev, the Russian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016, has released another new single and announced plans for two new albums.

Earlier this year, Sergey Lazarev promised that he would be releasing a new track from his upcoming Russian-language album every few weeks. Vdrebezgi (To pieces) is the next song to be released, and the album is due for release on the 8 December.

Vdrebezgi is written by Aleksander Penkin, who has worked with Sergey before on his previous hits Vesna and V samoe serdce. Vdrebezgi has Bond-theme vibes, and according to Sergey himself, was written three years ago, but he did not feel mature enough to release it.

Two new albums to come!

Before he announced the release of Vdrebezgi, Sergey informed his fans via Instagram that he has plans for not one but two further albums.

The first is the Russian language album due for release on 8 December, and fans have already been treated to first few tracks from this album. The second will be an English-language album released in Spring to coincide with his upcoming N-tour.

One the composers most heavily featured on this album is the legendary Dimitris Kontopoulos; the man behind many fan-favourite Eurovision songs, including Sergey’s entry, You are the only one. This has sparked yet more rumours that Sergey could be making a return to the Eurovision stage.
