Karin Park – Human Beings

kpark

By now it’s pretty obvious that we’re big fans of Karin Park, but we also have a large soft spot for Eurovision, so the two coming together is some kind of dream scenario. Of course, this isn’t the first time that’s happened – Karin co-wrote Margaret Berger’s stonkingly-good entry for Norway in 2013 – but now she’s going it alone, and it’s probably the best song to get within a whiff of Eurovision since the last time Karin was involved. Co-written by British hitmaker Guy Chambers, Human Beings features brooding verses that reflect on Karin’s boyfriend’s diagnosis with cancer, giving way to an enormous release of a chorus: “We are human beings looking for a meaning, you know you’re alive as long as you’re breathing.” The deal isn’t set in stone, though. Karin has to compete in Norway’s national final alongside ten other entries in the hope to win the chance to represent Norway on Europe’s most glittering stage. Melodi Grand Prix takes place on March 14, but you can listen to the song now. The other entries are also available to listen to on NRK’s website, although we, er, haven’t yet.
