Following the Albanian national final back in December 2017, which picked the Albanian entry for Lisbon, the shortened and revamped version of the song Mall from Eugent Bushpepa has now been released.
It has been more than 3 months since Festivali i Këngës 56 in Tirana and we can finally listen to the final version of the 2018 Albanian Eurovision entry. Eugent Bushpepa revamped his FiK winning song in Belgium in the past few weeks:

On December 23, Eugent Bushpepa won FiK 56 with the song Mall (beating fan favorite Inis Neziri who came 3rd), earning therefore the right to represent the nation and be the 15th ever Albanian Eurovision act.
After winning the competition, Eugent Bushpepa has been very silent on social media. Who knows what Albania is preparing for Lisbon, but it’s probably going to be really good!
He recently traveled to Portugal to film his postcard.

Eugent will follow in the footsteps of Lindita who represented the Balkan nation last year in Kyiv with her song World, with which she performed in the first half of the first semi-final, just like Eugent is set to do. Eventually, she didn’t manage to bring Albania to the final, scoring 14th place in the semi-final.
