Dami Im unveils Eurovision song Sound of Silence

DAMI Im has unveiled her Eurovision Contest song, Sound of Silence.

The mid-tempo track has an anthemic feel and a chorus designed to fill the Stockholm arena with Im's powerful voice.

"The first time I heard Sound of Silence I knew it was the perfect song for me to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest," Im said.

 "There are many ways to interpret the meaning around a song, but one theme that I relate to in Sound of Silence is that of disconnection and being away from the people in my life that I love.

 "We live in a world where it is easy to be connected every minute of the day but along with this connection you can feel alone and isolated. I can't wait to perform it live in Stockholm and connect with a whole new audience."

Sound of Silence was written by Australian hit makers DNA Songs (David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii) who have written for Ricky Martin, Jessica Mauboy, Nathaniel, Delta Goodrem, Timomatic and The Veronicas as well as penning Im's X-Factor winner's single Alive.

The Eurovision Song Contest takes place in Sweden in May.
