We zullen het snel genoeg weten denk ik...quote:He was one of the break-out acts of the sadly cancelled Eurovision 2020. But Iceland’s Daši Freyr has confirmed that he’s willing to return to Eurovision 2021. However, the “Think About Things” singer says he would only do it if broadcaster RŚV internally selects him.
Daši Freyr opened up in an interview with German newspaper Berliner Zeitung. He talked about how his life has changed since the success of “Think About Things” — and whether Daši og Gagnamagniš will make a return in 2021.
Daši told the newspaper that nothing has been confirmed for 2021 — but he is willing to return. But Daši is clear that he doesn’t want to go through the Söngvakeppnin national final process again.
But it’s for good reason. He explained (in German) that he just wants to focus on Eurovision:
“The only way we’ll be going is if they send us straight to Eurovision. […] I want to compete, but it’s just so much work to do the Icelandic competition, and at this point, it doesn’t really make sense for me to do that whole thing again. If we can go straight to Eurovision, we can focus on that the whole time instead of having to split the focus.”
Daši revealed that he already has some ideas for a 2021 entry, including potential staging for the song. And he’s serious about giving Iceland its first Eurovision win:
“I’m going to try to win – but I’ve got to make a song that’s got the goods to go high in the competition first […] If we can go with our group of friends to Eurovision and take home a trophy, that would be a good story. But the point is not to win. We’re going to aim for the win — but we’ll expect less.”
But he won’t have long to wait to find out Iceland’s plans for 2021. Daši told Berliner Zeitung that he expected to hear from RŚV “in the next few days”.
