Guy Sebastian has released the song he will perform at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, and it took less than 48 hours to produce.

The song “Tonight Again” is an upbeat R&B ballad, a style which Sebastian is now known for, and is about living in the moment.

According to the SBS website, the song was produced specifically for Eurovision over the past week, and was recorded over two days.

Australian delegation chief Paul Clarke said the song was a “12th hour gem”.

“The title ‘Tonight Again is a wonderful sentiment, about wishing to relive the excitement of a great night. Singing on the Eurovision stage will give it special meaning,” Mr Clarke said.

Sebastian was chosen last month to represent Australia as part of its wildcard entry and will perform in front of Eurovision’s global audience of 180 million.

He said he wanted to record a new song which was “home-grown” for the special occasion.

“We all have moments you don’t want to end and you wish you could live those moments every day so I wanted to write a song about that feeling,” Sebastian said.

“I am sure that is how I am going to feel when I am in Vienna performing.”

The selection of the Australian Idol winner has been met with mixed responses, with radio station Triple J producing a list of more deserving Australian artists, including Gotye and Sia.

Last week, Australian viking metal band Barbariön said on Facebook that Sebastian would be “captured and eaten” at the contest, and called him a “beige-coloured Volvo full of Subway rolls”.
