Lesley Roy was supposed to represent Ireland in the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Story of my life”. We all know why that didn’t happen. However, Lesley has a new entry: “Maps”, for the 2021 contest. The song was written by Lesley herself together with Lukas Hällgren and Emilie Eriksson.
On Eurovision.tv Lesley states: “I’m thrilled to see through this project and represent Ireland at Eurovision 2021 with Maps. I’m so happy with the song and so passionate about it and Eurovision. It’s a true honour and I want to have the best time I possibly can on the stage for Ireland.
This has been a year in the making and I’m thrilled to finally get it out there for everyone to hear. Maps was specifically written for Eurovision. It’s heart-felt, it’s uplifting, and I hope people love it.”
