Václav Noid Bárta, one half of the duo that represented the Czech Republic, has released a new album. 

This is the singer’s second album, following his self-entitled debut album that was released in 2013.

The new album, Jedinej krok, will feature his Eurovision Song Contest entry Hope never dies, which he performed earlier this year alongside Marta Jandova in Vienna.

In an interview with the Czech music website Musicserver, the album shows the wide range of music Václav has performed throughout his career.

I decided than on the album to join all my favourite styles, so in addition to rock and pop sounds an rap, but even even a little musical from throughout my professional life is included.

Václav has already released the title track from the album, which has a far heavier and rock feel to it than Hope never dies.

As part of the promotion for the album he will perform two concerts at the Musical Theatre Karlín in Prague on the 20 and 21 November.

At the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, Václav Noid Bárta represented the Czech Republic alongside Marta Jandova. The pair achieved the country’s best result in the contest, a 13th place finish in their semi-final. 
They also achieved the country’s highest points total, which was also the first time the country scored points in double figures.

The Czech Republic made their debut at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 where they achieved a 28th place finish in the semi-final with one point.
The country’s poor results continued in the next two years, which led to the country pulling out of the contest before making their return this year.

The Czech broadcaster, CT, has confirmed that the country will compete at the Eurovision Song Contest next year in Stockholm.
