Russia’s Eurovision 2015 runner-up Polina Gagarina hits the spotlight with a new song that has a dark theme, Melankholiya. She has also a victory to celebrate, as she was crowned best female singer by Glamour magazine.

Melankholiya (Меланхолия, Melancholy) is the latest single by Russian artist Polina Gagarina, released on 8 November 2018. As the title suggests, the song describes the melancholic feeling of a deep longing for love.

Although the subject is dark, Melankholiya is a dance track, sung with Polina’s signature powerful voice. Lyrics include:

A thousand times a second, my heart beats wildly
Again the river of sadness flows over the edges
People pass by, nothing of them remains
Alone with me is melancholy.

Меланхолия – премьера сингла

Однако верная своему стилю Полина пересмотрела это чувство, раскрасив его множеством оттенков. Трек доступен на всех музыкальных платформах:ПолинаГагарина #Меланхолия
