Here we go then!
Last week, The Rasmus revealed that they were going to be competing to represent Finland at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with their new single ‘Jezebel’.
And now you can hear it.
The song itself is chock full of sensual hooks, longing guitars and an ear-worm of a chorus, and feels like some classic Rasmus loveliness.
The band collaborated on it with Desmond Child who they worked with on their album ‘Black Roses’, and vocalist Lauri Ylönen had this to say about it:
“It was awesome to work with Desmond again. He really knows how to put a hit song together. Jezebel is about a girl who takes what she wants, without asking. A free spirit.”
And Desmond said this:
“Lauri gives me a call and says ‘Hey, I need to write the biggest, greatest song in the entire world, ever. Will you do it [with me]?’ and I said ‘Yeah but I am in Folegandros (Greece)’ and he says, ‘I’ll be right there’. ‘Jezebel’ is a homage, a tribute, to the strong women of today, who own their bodies, who are in charge of their sensuality, their sexuality, and who are determined to be an equal.”
