Denmark’s 2011 Eurovision Song Contest entry New Tomorrow, performed by the band A Friend In London, is still one of the most popular Danish entries of the 2000’s. The band broke up at the beginning of 2014, and lead singer Tim Schou went solo. He put out a couple of singles since then (Supernova, Goodbye), paid a visit to the Eurovision community at the 2014 Contest held in Copenhagen, Denmark, when he hosted the EuroClub, and is currently working on new songs. One of them, Novocaine, has just been put out on Soundcloud.
Tim dropped by at ESC Radio studio for an exclusive interview in which he looks back on the AFIL split, talks about his solo endeavors, song-writing and his new track Novocaine and, who would’ve guessed, Eurovision!
