What Is The Official Single Called?
Now that’s been settled, fans want to know about the official song for this year’s tournament, which will be performed tonight to open the games.
We Are the People
‘We Are the People’ is the official Euro 2020 soundtrack.
It’ll be performed by three legendary artists at the opening ceremony in Rome this evening: no less than U2’s Bono and The Edge, and Martin Garrix.
The song has got a real classic U2 tempo and sound to it, with a Martin Garrix electronic twist in the chorus.
The video features scenes of Bono and The Edge singing on a rooftop at sunset, clips of young football fans preparing to watch the game and footage of football games too. It’s got all the ingredients of a classic football soundtrack music video.
Will it become a classic footie song? Only time will tell.
In other news, an unofficial Euro 2020 song is in the making, with a number of famous faces joining forces to record a remake of the Vindaloo song.
Danny Dyer, Two Pints Of Lager… star Will Mellor, Paddy McGuinness, Keith Lemon and original Fat Les member Keith Allen all feature in ‘Vindaloo Two’.
All proceeds from the track are going to NHS Charities Together.
