What’s this? Icelandic artist Elín Ey has just gone and released this year’s official Reykjavík Pride song. Her new single ‘Ljósið’.
What does that mean? The Light!
What’s it like? A super-cool concoction of synth, disco, dance and indie-pop. As with everything else they do in 2020, Iceland are taking a more out-there approach to the standard Pride song!
What does Elín say?The message is clear in the song – it’s all about having the freedom to be yourself. Everyone can be as they please.
Written by? Elín herself, along with Pálmi Ragnar Ásgeirsson and Ragnheiður Guðmunds.
More from Elín? Earlier this year, she released her own take on ABBA’s classic ‘Waterloo’.

You can find ‘Ljósið’ on our Best New Synthpop playlist.
