Europe’s Heartbeat: A Month Of Music For December

Following its Saturday broadcast over on Radio 6 International, you can listen again to this month’s edition of Europe’s Heartbeat. There’s a dash of Eurovision as you would expect from me – in this case a new release from Moldovan legends Sunstroke Project, as well as one of this month’s Junior Eurovision songs.

You’ve got chart hits in there with Pinguini Tattici Nucleari’s current Top 10 hit, and Belgium’s Angéle’s latest smash that looks back at her time as a busker on the streets of Brussels. New releases from classic rockers Hammerfall and Volbeat, twisty Turkish tunes from Fatma Turgut, a Spanish cover of an Italian classic from Ana Mena, and of course… much more.

As the end of the year approaches, I’m putting together my twelve favourite new songs from 2021, which I’ll likely post song by song on my personal Facebook wall, and roll them up into a single blog post and playlist here.
