John Newman, and Therapy, performed by Armin Van Buuren and James Newman and won a Brit for British Single of the Year, in 2014 for Waiting All Night, performed by Rudimental and Ella Eyre.
Watch the video for My Last Breath:
My Last Breath was co-written with acclaimed British songwriters Ed Drewett, Iain James and Adam Argyle who have collectively written songs for One Direction, Little Mix, Olly Murs, Professor Green, Leona Lewis, Dua Lipa and James Bay.
Of the collaboration, James comments; “We all love cold water swimming and every January we rent a house somewhere we can do that. This year, we went to Appin in the west Highlands, where we swam in a freezing loch and went hiking. We were literally climbing mountains in search of a song, reaching peaks and saying there’s a Eurovision winner up here somewhere! We just had to find it.”
Wim adds; “We’re always breathing, yet we’re mostly unaware of its tremendous potential. Heightened oxygen levels hold a treasure trove of benefits, and the specialized breathing technique of the Wim Hof Method unearths them all: more energy, reduced stress levels, and an augmented immune response that swiftly deals with pathogens.”
The 65th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Rotterdam, The Netherlands on May 16th 2020 and broadcast live on BBC One.
