The 2016 Italian Eurovision representative, Francesca Michielin sees the release of her brand new single, titled Io non abito al mare (I don’t live by the sea). The song is a precursor to Francesca’s 3rd personal album, which is about to be released with the new year’s advent, on 12 January.
New entry and concert tour in the making
This new entry is written by Francesca herself and the Italian singer Edorado D’Arme (stage name Calcutta), with whom she had also joined forces during her last year’s acts.
When it comes to her single’s title and sea, Francesca made the following statements:
Welcome to the sea I have in my head. It’s a sea of so beautiful things that make me afraid. Hugs, sunsets, kisses on the cheek, an ocean of happiness, two cafes at the bar. I have the sea in my mind because my heart has been above a mountain for twenty years. And where is the mountain once there was the sea and I learned to listen to the silence that has remained. Tenderness is everywhere!
The music video for the song is directed by Giacomo Triglia and premiered on YouTube on Monday, 20 November. You may enjoy Francesca’s new pop entry here:

Francesca Michielin at Eurovision
Having experienced the victory at the 5th edition of the Italian X-Factor, young singer Francesca Michielin participated and came 2nd at the 2016 Sanremo Music Festival with the bilingual song Nessun grado di separazione. It was later revealed that she had earned the right to represent Italy at the 61st Eurovision Song Contest, after the decline of the 2016 festival’s winning band Stadio to do it.
Francesca went on and took to the Eurovision stage in Stockholm, under the English translation of her song’s title, No degree of separation. As Italy is a member of the Big 5, she automatically competed in the contest’s Grand Final and finished in 16th place with 124 points.
