Organisers of the 2024 EUROS have this week announced that Italian producers Meduza, American pop-rock trailblazers OneRepublic, and German pop songstress Kim Petras will unite to create the official UEFA EURO 2024 song!
As the tournaments official music artists, the supergroup will unveil the track in the spring of next year, ahead of the much anticipated competition which will take place from June 14th to July 14th 2024 across ten host cities in Germany: Berlin, Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Gelsenkirchen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich, and Stuttgart.
UEFA EURO 2024 is set to be a landmark event, celebrating not only Europe’s football ability, but also its “cultural diversity and unity”.
In a climatic finale, the closing ceremony will feature a live performance of the official song by all three artists.
Commenting on her involvement in the project, GRAMMY winner Petras said: “In my home country of Germany, football has always been a big deal. I have so many fond memories watching the matches together with my friends and family. Nothing could be a bigger honour for me and I’m so excited to join Meduza and OneRepublic in creating the official song for 2024!”
Meduza, the Italian DJs/producers who themselves were nominated for a GRAMMY Award in 2019, add: “We are thrilled to contribute to such a prestigious event! It’s an honour to create a song that mirrors the passion of EURO 2024 and resonates with our fellow football fans.”
While OneRepublic singer Ryan Tedder reflected: “Growing up, American football and football were the sports I played the most from age five. Performing at the closing ceremony of EURO 2024 in Berlin is an incredible opportunity and honour for any artist, but is truly exciting for me personally. The energy that comes with this sport is like nothing else in the world. We absolutely cannot wait.”
