What an exciting few weeks it has been! As you have, no doubt, already read / heard, our song 'Heartbeat' by Can-linn featuring the vocals of Kasey Smith won the Irish 2014 Eurosong competition and, as such, we will go on to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen this coming May.

Of course, everybody involved with Can-linn is absolutely delighted that we have been chosen by the Irish people to represent our country at the Eurovision Song Contest, but we also understand that an even bigger challenge begins now. We need to refocus our efforts and turn our attention to Copenhagen were we have to partake in the semi final competition and impress the people of Europe as a whole. We're currently having meetings with RTE on how best to present the stage show when we perform in Denmark. Unfortunately, I can't give you any real clues about it right now a it's very top secret stuff!

One very cool thing I can tell you about though, is the upcoming dance / club remix of Heartbeat that we are working on right now. I think it's going to be a massive hit on the club scene, not just in Ireland, but all over Europe too. It will debut on our official Youtube channel. Be sure to subscribe to it so you can be one of the first people to hear it!
In the mean time, here's the official music video for Heartbeat:

I'd like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to each and every one of our fans, supporters, helpers, well wishers and everyone who voted for us on the 28th. Without you none of this could have been possible and everyone in Can-linn is eternally grateful for your generous and continued support.

Here's to new friends and new adventures!
