Slovenia has presented a new version and the official video to their Eurovision Song Contest 2014 entry, Round and round.
The song, performed by Tinkara Kovac, won the Slovenian national final in March. You can see the video below,
Raay, the producer and composer of Round and round, said that the updated version of the song will make it sound more attractive for their Eurovision Song Contest performance,
Some hard production changes were made for the official Eurovision version of the song. We dared to be a bit more progressive in the sound and Tinkara added some high notes at the ‘grand finale’ of the song.
After winning EMA 2014 with the first version of the song, we decided to go with another approach that I’m not sure anyone has ever tried.
I’ve spent many nights reading comments and different opinions from fans about what we should do or how we should improve it. In the end, we decided to go with the synergy of what our creative team did with the song and what Eurovision fans suggested.
Tinkara will perform 14th in the second semi-final at the Eurovision song Contest 2014 where Slovenia will be looking to make the final for the first time since 2011.
Last year, Hannah Mancini, who also is on the writing team for this year’s entry, represented Slovenia. She finished last in her semi-final, picking up eight points.
