Spring 2016 is shaping up as a busy time for the singer, Daniel Kajmakoski, who represented FYR Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.

Since 6 March, he has been competing in the third series of Tvoje lice zvuci poznato, the Serbian version of popular TV show, Your Face Sounds Familiar.

The show, in which celebrities perform as well-known music stars, has seen Daniel sing as Croatian rocker, Gibonni, American artist Bruno Mars, and even as the legend Tina Turner. And in the show that is to air this Sunday, 3 April, Daniel will perform the music of Karolina Goceva who, like Daniel, has represented FYR Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest.

But Daniel’s fans are perhaps most excited about the release of his new music. The video for his new song Samo za ljubav was released this week on YouTube and has already had an impressive 50,000 views.

The music and lyrics were written by Aleksandra Milutinovic, who, as well as being a successful pop performer in her own right, has also written music for former Eurovision competitors Zeljko Joksimovic, Tose Proeski and Sergej Cetkovic.

This song celebrates love, Aleksandra said of her work for Daniel Kajmakoski. It’s very positive and tender.

Daniel Kajmakoski represented FYR Macedonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with the song Autumn leaves. He co-wrote the song with Joacim Persson, whose previous credits include songs for Charlotte Perrelli and Helena Paparizou. Nevertheless, Autumn leaves failed to qualify for the grand final of the competition.

Of his new project with Aleksandra Milutinovic, Daniel said:

This is a song I believe in. I like its emotional lyrics very much. It’s true that only love is always worth fighting for. I think that the video tells the story in a very unusual and interesting way. I hope that the audience will feel  the emotions and the commitment that the whole team put into this song.
