In recent months Alfred and Amaia have kept Spain under their spell — first by falling in love on OT and then by winning the OT Eurovision gala with their lovely duet “Tu canción”. They’ve subsequently performed their entry all over Spain, and have been making tweaks along the way.
The music video will be released on Friday. But on Tuesday Cadena Dial spoiled the surprise about the song’s revamp, playing the final version of “Tu canción”.
The simple song now has stronger instrumentation, giving it a bit more of oomph, and there’s a spectacular new ending. But don’t let me tell you. RTVE released the high quality version of the song and you can listen to it below.
“Tu canción” now has a more polished sound, with a more complex piano base, more strings and some other swelling instrumentation to enhance key moments of the song.
Amaia and Alfred also sound better together, with Alfred projecting a clearer voice without his trademark flourishes. This will likely reduce the occasional comparisons to a frog that we have seen on YouTube and elsewhere. Their vocals blend smoothly and despite the heavier instrumental, they remain the true stars of the entry.
We have to talk about what really has us excited: the big climax. OH. THE. CLIMAX.
The “ooooh, ooooh, oooh” part that felt a bit languid before now paves the way for a proper explosion.
There’s little a cappella section while they sing “Siento que bailo por primera vez”, and then boom! The big orchestra appears and it’s as if Heaven’s gates are opening.
RTVE will reveal the official music video for “Tu canción” on Friday the 9th. As for now, you can take a look at the snippet, which looks stunning already.
