Australia Decides 2022: Jaguar Jonze releases her entry 'Little Fires'
Brisbane-based singer-songwriter Jaguar Jonze has released her song ‘Little Fires' that she will perform at ‘Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2022 on the Gold Coast in February.
Back in October 2021, Jaguar was revealed as one of the artists that would be competing at 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' 2022'. She is no stranger to the Australia Decides stage. Jaguar competed at Australia Decides 2020 with 'Rabbit Hole' delivering an amazing performance which finished in 6th place.
'Little Fires' made its premiere on the alternative music and youth radio station, Triple J, on Thursday evening during 'Home & Hosed with Declan Byrne'.
The song has been officially released in Australia.
In an interview with Aussievision, Jaguar revealed her thoughts on her Australia Decides entry:
"I'm going to be quite confident here. And I'm usually very modest and humble. I honestly think it's my best song I've ever written in my entire life."
"And it's the most honest song I've ever crafted. So what can you expect, a visual that matches with that as well. So if it's my best work yet, in my songwriting, I want it to also be my best work yet in life performance, and visual art as well. So really pushing myself to grow here. And I know I'm going to deliver, it's going to be, for me, I'm really working hard for this performance to be not an individual pursuit. It's a societal like community spirit that I want to embrace. So I think everyone has an involvement in this performance, and we're going to perform it together. So that's what I'm gonna say it's a collaboration for all of us."
'Little Fires' is co-written by Jaguar, with PJ Harding, who has written songs for Ruel, Jessica Mauboy, Guy Sebastian and worked with Lil Nas X, and Louis Schoorl, who is a Dutch-born singer songwriter, who co-wrote Guy Sebastian’s 'Tonight Again' and Benjamin Ingrosso’s 'Dance You Off'.
Jaguar also revealed that she was approached and asked to submit songs for Australia Decides. She locked herself away for a month where she ended up writing seven songs for 'Eurovision - Australia Decides". About the process she said:
"I don't think I've ever worked so hard in pumping these songs out, but I wanted it to be my best work. And so I put everything into making that happen."
Jaguar joins eleven other acts for the final of 'Eurovision - Australia Decides' on February 26 on the Gold Coast.
‘Little Fires’ is available on iTunes and for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music.
