Icelandic multi-instrumentalist Daði Freyr has been confirmed to represent his country at next year's Eurovision Song Contest, after this year's event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In March 2019, Daði Freyr was announced as the Icelandic contestant for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, and his entry track "Think About Things" was a huge anthem, leading him to become one of the favourites to win before the event was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite COVID-19 disrupting Daði Freyr's Eurovision journey, the musician continued to release new music, and gained attention from Hot Chip, who remixed "Think About Things".
Today (23 October), Daði Freyr announced that he will return to represent Iceland at next year's Eurovision. He wrote, "I’m coming back next year and Gagnamagnið is joining me! So I guess I’m writing another Eurovision song."

In a press release, Daði Freyr added, ""Think About Things" has changed my life. I never thought the song would ever go as far as it has and I am so grateful for all the opportunities it has lead to. Thank you all so much for listening. These remixes mark the end of a crazy time in my life but at the same time I am getting ready for a crazier chapter. This is not the end of my Eurovision journey because I am coming back in 2021 and so is Gagnamagnið."
