This year's Maltese representative Thea Garrett flew to Frankfurt in Germany to record the Eurovision version of the song My dream.

Before departing from the Malta international airport, the 17 year old artist said that she was excited and eager to hear the finished product. Thea Garrett will have the second opporutnity to work in an international studio.

Malta Eurosong coordinator Peter Busuttil is accompanying Thea in Germany. The composer of the Maltese entry, Jason Cassar said that the musical arrangement of the song will be enhanced with the use of live instruments which will permit Thea's voice to shine even more. Cassar explained how he was in continuos contact with the recording engineers in Germany and Sweden where mainly the mastering of the song will take place. Following the vocal recording in Germany, Thea Garrett is expected to fly back to Malta in order to plot her promotional campaign along with the national broadcaster PBS.

Meanwhile there is no date when the new version will be released. It is strongly believed that the Eurovision version will be revealed within the proximity of the Head of the Delegations meeting when Joe Dimech (head of the Maltese delegation) will hand the Maltese Eurovision entry in Oslo.

Thea Garrett will represent Malta in the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Oslo.
