More details have emerged about the song that will mark Bosnia and Herzegovina‘s return to Eurovision after a four-year break. The song — which will be performed by Dalal Midhat-Talakic, Fuad Backovic-Deen and Ana Rucner — will be revealed some time in the second half of February, and the Head of Delegation has confirmed that the lyrics will be in Bosnian.
Speaking to Faktor news, Head of Delegation Lejla Babovic confirmed that the song would be revealed on a television show in late February. The show will also feature a performance from the country’s last Eurovision representative, Maya Sar, who performed “Korake ti znam” in 2012.
While it had been speculated that the song would have English lyrics, like Deen’s 2004 song “In the Disco”, Babovic confirmed that the song going to Stockholm would be sung in Bosnian, explaining that, “it sounds a lot better than English.” And with six Balkan countries in the competition this year, Bosnia and Herzegovina could be making a wise decision to have lyrics that will be easily understood by their neighbours.
Babovic also noted that the song title hasn’t been decided yet, but they have two possibilities. An all-star team is behind the song, with Sarajevo-based rapper Jasmin Fazlic Jala and popular singer Zuzi Zu co-writing the lyrics.
There are plans to shoot a music video for the song, but exactly what form that takes will depend on the budget. Babovic explained that one plan, at least, is to show off the natural beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
