Eurovision Legend Lena Returns With Dark Pop Gem ‘Straightjacket’

Eurovision fans will fondly remember Satellite performer Lena who claimed victory for Germany in 2010, later returning with the even more impressive Taken By a Stranger in 2011. Lena has continued to have a high profile career in Central Europe with a plethora of hit albums and singles under her belt in Germany and Austria. She returns with a new era with two new numbers, the freshly dropped Straightjacket and previous gem What I Want.

On Straightjacket, Lena sings: “The way you touch, the way you love / They’d have to bury me before I’d ever give you up / Poisoned air, I’ll breathe you in / A straitjacket couldn’t keep my hands off your skin…” The cut sees Lena delve into true contemporary pop sounds, with this taking a dark-tone delving into overriding feelings of compelling love. The number is written by Hailey Collier, Lena, Nikolay Mohr and Sophia Brenan. Nikolay contributes the high-energy, brooding production.

The new numbers are likely to feature on Lena’s as yet unannounced new album. Her most recent full LP was Only Love, L in 2019, she has since released EP trio Optimistic, Kind and Confident in 2021.
