Australia’s Eurovision contestant, Jessica Mauboy, has today unveiled the song she plans to represent Australia with at the annual competition to be held in Lisbon, Portugal and broadcast exclusively on SBS from 9 to 13 May.

Released globally today, the song is called #We Got Love and comes with the official video clip below.

Mauboy said: “I love the Eurovision Song Contest. I have since I was a little girl watching it with the family in Darwin. I wanted to write a song that captured that instinctive sense of joy of how a great song can change the darkest of moods into happiness. #We Got Love is also about how music can lift the human spirit. You can always rise above in the hardest times with something as simple as a great song.

“Eurovision, to me, is people brought together through a real love of music and all the joy that music can bring. I can’t wait to perform this song live in Portugal and see it connect with a global audience at such a special time.”

Michael Ebeid, SBS managing mirector said: “SBS has been bringing Eurovision to Australians for 35 years, but Jessica introduced homegrown talent to the world stage in 2014 when she became the first non-European solo artist to perform. She wowed the global audience and showcased what Australia is made of – and SBS is thrilled to invite her back to compete for Eurovision glory this year.

“At the heart of Eurovision is a celebration of diversity through music – a universal language that transcends culture – and #We Got Love really resonates as a song about overcoming barriers and bringing people together.”

#We Got Love is written by Australian hit makers DNA SONGS duo David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii in collaboration with Mauboy. DNA also worked on Dami Im’s 2016 Eurovision hit ‘Sound Of Silence’, which saw the singer land second place and Isaiah’s ‘Don’t Come Easy’ placing him in the top 10 at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017.
