About the music video
The 2018 Spanish Eurovision hopefuls will be depicting the freshness of their love in the video. The concept of the video clip is about first love, showcasing the freshness and innocence of young lovers, the first encounters of a couple.
This is the first time that the Spanish duo have recorded a music video and the video clip’s producer wanted the viewers to feeel the love of the young couple.
The video clip has been directed by Gus Carballo whilst the 2018 Spanish Eurovision entry has been composed by Raul Gomez.
Gus Carballo says:
The concept of the video clip is about the first time, the first encounter, the first love … And what a duo! It is the first time that the kids make a video clip and it was very important that they do not lose their freshness or innocence, which they have to transmit, along with the experiences that they are living!
Last January Alfred & Amaia were crowned the winners of the 2018 Spanish national final and will fly to Lisbon with their love ballad.

Spain has not missed a single contest since its debut in 1961 and has participated religiously in the competition every year.
