Sandie Shaw, Britain’s first winner of the Eurovision Song Contest has celebrated 50 years in the music industry by teaming up with Neil Davidge. The result is a brand new song called Riot Pictures.
Many people had believed that Sandie had retired from music altogether. However in an interview with Alan Titchmarsh, Sandie explains that she has retired from her musical past in order to focus on a new style of music and sound.

In 1967 Sandie Shaw won the Eurovision Song Contest for the United Kingdom with the song Puppet on a string.
