Shortly before TVP’s announcement, the media circulated unofficial reports that the candidate chosen by the jury was not favored by Justyna Steczkowska. The experts were to entrust the mission of representing Poland in the competition to Luna with the song “The Tower”.

Glow (his real name is Ola Wielgomas and at the beginning of her career she performed under her own name and surname) has performed duets with Eurovision rivals: Justyna Steczkowska (“Not my dream”) i Marcin Maciejczak (“I’m not asking for more”). In April 2022, the artist released her debut album “Nocne zmory”.

– Singing in English makes it easier to go abroad. That’s why I decided to release this EP and that’s why I create in both Polish and English. With this English-language material, I want to open up to foreign markets – said Luna in an interview with Interia.

She entered the pre-selection with the song “The Tower”, which for the singer is like “an exit from darkness and darkness”. Inspired by astronomy, the singer released it on the first full moon in 2024.

“It is a manifesto of freedom and strength. An exit from darkness and darkness. Abandoning ties, blockages, limitations, negative patterns and relationships. Demolishing the tower and going out into the world. It is realizing one’s own strength, fullness and that limitations are our creation. The tower is a place or state that we build ourselves. I hope that this song will inspire us all to fight for ourselves, our own freedom, love and sense of worth. About being fully ourselves, without boundaries,” says the singer about the song.

The song was created after last year’s album “Night Terrors”a bit dark and sultry, and the composition “The Tower” is for her a transition to this more joyful, bright and warmer musical aura, but also image-wise.

There was also a video for the song, which included many symbolic references. “(…) The emerging opponents represent various spheres of my life and the struggle that takes place in them. Exchange of sentences, glances, crossing boundaries. She duels with different people, a brother, a boyfriend, a friend, and also with herself. However, the final and most important game takes place in my head. Seeing myself in the future, I have to win with myself. Because freedom depends most on ourselves. We create our own world. I’m the one who holds the power!” – wrote the singer, at the same time expressing hope that the song will “ignite listeners to fight for themselves, freedom, love and self-esteem.” “About being fully yourself, without boundaries,” she described the song.
