Duncan Laurence & FLETCHER Perform “Arcade” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
- Dutch singer-songwriter Duncan Laurence and American singer-songwriter FLETCHER appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform “Arcade”.
Both of Duncan Laurence and FLETCHER teamed up to release the remix of “Arcade” last November.
The original version is the winning song of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. The track is included on his debut album “Small Town Boy”, which was released on November 13, 2020.
Duncan Laurence said of the song, “I’m always inspired by stories that move me, real personal experiences from my own life or someone else’s. “Arcade” was inspired by the story of someone I loved deeply, who died at a young age. The words, chords and melodies came to me automatically as if they fell from the sky. When Joel Sjöö and Wouter Hardy helped me finish the song it got a much larger scope. It changed from a very personal story to a story that everyone can connect to. “Arcade” is a song about longing… longing for love… longing for something that seems out of reach. And it speaks of hope. Hope, that you will find what you need in life. […] It feels good to now step into the light and share my story. I want to reach out to people with my music, possibly even help them. The song is a word of advice to myself and who knows… Maybe it helps someone, somewhere… I truly hope so.”
