Polish singer Edyta Gorniak has released a new single, Glow On.

Glow On is the second single release from Edyta’s new album, due in early 2015. The first was Your High, a single that reached number 3 in the Polish Singles Chart, as well as number 45 and 74 in the Irish and Lithuanian iTunes download charts respectively. Both singles continue Edyta’s exploration of new sounds in a move away from the ballads that first made her famous, with Glow On being described as moody, mysterious and unearthly on the star’s youtube channel. The song had a warm reception when Edyta preformed it on the Voice of Poland last week.

Edyta Gorniak was Poland’s first ever competitor at the Eurovision Song Contest.  Her song, which was also her debut single, To nie ja! placed second in 1994, and marked the beginning of a successful career which has now spanned twenty years and has included the release of six studio albums, a semi-final placing on Poland’s Dancing With the Stars and two seasons as judge on the Voice of Poland, this year alongside fellow former Eurovision contestant, Justyna Steczkowska.

To mark the twentieth anniversary of To Nie Ja! Edyta performed the track as part of Polish television channel TVP2’s New Year’s Eve celebrations last year. Edyta has been asked to perform as part of the celebrations again this year, where she will appear alongside this year’s Cleo and Donatan.
