Dutch singer-songwriter Douwe Bob is back with the new single Shine and will release his album The shape I’m in in November.

Shine is the latest single from Dutch ESC 2016 representative Douwe Bob and it’s taken from his forthcoming album The shape I’m in, which is set for release in November.

The shape I’m in will be Douwe Bob’s fourth studio album and will be presented on Friday 9 November 2019, the day the singer-songwriter will also start his The shape I’m in-tour throughout the Netherlands. Douwe Bob describes his new album:

This is a break-up album you can dance to.

The single Shine talks about embracing your own uniqueness and letting your inner light shine for the world to see:

Some people may seem bound for glory

Some never look you in the eye

Some people kick off without warning

Some people hit you from behind

The world won’t play a broken record

How come you keep on wasting time

Mind what you say because it echoes

I want to see you shine

I want to see you shine
