Public Image Ltd have revealed their latest single ‘Hawaii’, and announced that they will be competing to represent Ireland in the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest.
The song is a tribute to lead singer John Lydon’s wife Nora, who is living with Alzheimer’s. “It is dedicated to everyone going through tough times on the journey of life, with the person they care for the most,” he said in a statement. “It’s also a message of hope that ultimately love conquers all.”

The band will compete in a televised competition next month for the chance to represent their country. The announcement of the new song comes two months after the death of PiL guitarist Keith Levene, aged 65.
The Eurovision Song Contest has also made major changes to the voting system for 2023. The semi-finals will now be decided purely by public vote, while the grand final will include both public and jury votes.
