Trijntje Oosterhuis, the 2015 Dutch Eurovision representative, is working on new musical material.

Helping Trijntje Oosterhuis writing songs for her new album is artist and producer Alain Clark. Alain Clark has been named as a potential Eurovision candidate in the past years. In fact, he was the main candidate to represent the Netherlands at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, before broadcaster AVROTROS gave preference to Trijntje Oosterhuis and her song Walk along, written by Anouk (Eurovision 2013). Walk along was also the title song of Trijntje Oosterhuis’ last album, co-produced by Anouk.

Now, Trijntje Oosterhuis teams up with Alain Clark in the process of creating songs for her upcoming new album. As the Dutch singer says on her official Facebook-page:

Inspiring and pleasant with @alainclark, in the studio making songs for my new album!

There is no title for the new album known yet, nor an official release date.

Trijntje Oosterhuis (Amsterdam, 1973) is one of the Netherlands’ most beloved singers. Singing is a variety of genres from pop to jazz and soul, Trijntje Oosterhuis has worked with international stars including Herbie Hancock, Burt Bacharach and Lionel Richie.

In 2015 she represented the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria, with the song Walk along. Although the artist reached a 5th place with the jury’s, she failed to convince the public and did not go through to the Grand Final, eventually placing 14th out of 16 contestants, with 33 points.
