Gotta get… Everything is set in Athens for the presentation of their 2019 Eurovision entry, which is going to take place tomorrow, 6 March, with a special event at the Athens Concert Hall. Katerine Duska, who was internally chosen to fly the Greek flag in Israel, will be performing the song Better love, from which we got a little taste, ahead of its full release.

The Greek broadcaster ERT will try to bring the country back to its older Eurovision glories with Better love, which is reportedly a dynamic mid-tempo song with European elements. Music is by Katerine Duska, Leon of Athens and David Sneddon and lyrics by Katerine Duska and David Sneddon as well.

Following the track’s recording and production in London, as well as its video clip’s filming in Athens, the Greek entrant posted a 10” snippet of her song on her official Instagram account.

The video clip of Better love has been directed by Efi Gousi and will premiere on YouTube on 6 March at 21:00 CET by Minos EMI/Universal. Ahead of the official video, the lyrics of the song are also revealed. You may read them below:

Katerine DuskaBetter love

Live for the mess
Make me feel ageless
No pain, no gain

Teach me carelessness
And I’m about to see all that’s made up
And everything they want from us
No pain, no gain

Once bitten, make way
And I can’t hide it I won’t fight this
Yearning feeling inside

Gotta get

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love

There’s nothing more to say to back it up when I’m
unafraid, I‘ve lost enough
Go on, hold on for dear life

‘Cause I can’t hide it I won’t fight this
Burning feeling inside

Gotta get

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love

Won’t you lean on me
You can lean on me
Let them look, don’t know, don’t care
Go deep with me
Go deep with me
Go deep with me

Better love, better love
All that we’re after
Way to love, who you love

What you waiting for, what you waiting fo-or, what you waiting for?
Better love, who you love
