Cypriot rockers Minus One have revealed the title of their song for Stockholm. It is called “Alter Ego”, and will be released on February 22. The group made the announcement today on social media.

“Alter Ego” is a Latin term, but for those of us who are a little rusty with our Latin, the band have conveniently provided a definition. An alter ego is “a person’s alternative personality”, which suggests we’ll be seeing another side to Minus One in Stockholm.
Minus One were internally selected by the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation. They had previously competed in the national selection in 2015, where their song “Shine” won the jury vote but placed third overall.
The band have been busy co-writing with Swedish songwriter and producer Thomas G:Son, the man behind Loreen’s “Euphoria”, and who last year contributed to “Amanecer” and Georgia’s “Warrior”. Minus One recently travelled to Sweden to work on their entry with G:Son.
And it won’t be long before we’ll get to hear the fruit of their labour. “Alter Ego” will be released on February 22, and Wiwibloggs will have full coverage.
