Rising First Nations artist Mitch Tambo has released his official song for Eurovision Australia Decides‘Together’.

The song was written with Robby De Sa, Isabella Kearnery-Nurse, Andy Hopkins and Aunty Bernadette Duncan, and has all the hallmarks of a Eurovision classic – with a uniquely Australian twist.

Over rousing drums, a driving didgeridoo bassline and a soaring chorus with lyrics that will unite audiences, Mitch alternates between singing in English and the language of his people, the Gamilaraay.

Mitch will perform ‘Together’ live at Eurovision Australia Decides on the Gold Coast in February for his chance to represent Australia at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam.

Mitch said: “’Together’ is a really important song to me. It’s the culmination of everything I want to do with my music – to bring people from all walks of life, cultures and creeds together with a message of love, especially when so many are going through such tough times. It’s the perfect song for Eurovision, which is all about uniting people through music no matter what language they speak – or sing. I can’t wait to get out on that stage and perform this song for Australia, and the world.”

With a musical style that blends traditional sounds and language with contemporary beats and production, Mitch is a new voice for a generation seeking music that cuts across cultures.

The Melbourne-based singer first came to national attention earlier this year when he performed John Farnham’s iconic anthem ‘You’re the Voice’ on Australia’s Got Talent, wearing the Dhinawan and Murray crest and feathers, which have significant meaning to his people.
