Ieieeeeeeooo! RTVE has finally released Edurne‘s official music video for “Amanecer”, her Eurovision 2015 song. In this glossy, high-end video, we see the sun rising — not just on Edurne, but also on her chances of success at Eurovision. Dressed as a Hellenic warrior, she takes us on a musical and spiritual journey — and four fabulous costume changes. She even morphs into a tiger. Hear her roar, y’all! Directed by David Arnal and Germán de la Hoz, it’s a real triumph of cinematography and 3-D effects. Edurne recorded the video in January in Valencia.

Reactions to Edurne’s song
Year after year we have a different kind of “Eurodrama” in Spain. Last year, we enjoyed a civil war between the followers of Ruth Lorenzo and Brequette, and this year we are suffering from a new kind of “Spanish fever” in which everybody defends passionately their own opinion about “Amanecer”. Some think that it’s a masterpiece poised to triumph at ESC, while others label it an over-hyped dissapointment. On the whole, Edurne has been very pleased.
But it seems that the opinion among the Eurovision VIPs is unanimous: Almost all of them have publicly expressed their support. Pastora Soler was the most effusive: “Massive interpretation and wonderful song. Congratulations to all.”

In the same direction, Soraya published a tweet to support Edurne. They both emerged from the “Operación Triunfo” talent show (just as Rosa López, Beth and Ramón). “I like Amanecer. Sometimes a simple song with feeling is more effective. I speak from my own experience,” Soraya said.
Me gusta como ha quedado #AmanececonEdurne Hay veces que una cancion sencilla y con sentimiento es mas efectiva… Lo digo por experiencia

Other artists like Javi Soleil (of D’nash) and Lucia Pérez showed their public support. For the moment Ruth Lorenzo has not spoken publicly about the song, though she previously appluaded Edurne’s selection.
