Daði og Gagnamagnið will reveal their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 “10 Years”.
The Icelandic entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 is set to be officially revealed this evening during Straumar. Speaking to the Icelandic broadcaster Daði spoke about the meaning of the song. The song is about Árný Fjóla who he has been with for ten years and has a child, he explains:
The song is about the fact that Árný and I have been together for ten years. How our love has strengthened with time. The ‘record cover’ is a picture of the face on Árný’s jumper, just as Think About Things was with my face. This is something of a direct follow-on from Think About Things, this song.
