Two new versions of Slovenia’s ‘Sebi’ have been released on Spotify. One version is an full instrumental version, the other titled the ‘Dare To Dream’ version.
The ‘Dare To Dream’ version has had a couple of changes from the original national final version.
The main change is song length: The “Dare To Dream” version has been cut to three minutes. The original was 3:19 but the EBU only allows songs to be three minutes long.
This means they have had to drop a verse at the end. The cut verse doesn’t take anything away from the song and the dreamy space-like atmosphere it brings. The ‘Dare To Dream’ version also has had more underlying beats added to it. Those help to enhance the atmosphere.
This version has been made available to YouTube and based on song length – and title – we can expect this is the final version for Eurovision.
Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl were the winners of Slovenia’s national final, Evrovizijska Melodija (EMA). With their song ‘Sebi’, they were able to convince both juries and the audience, overcoming Raiven and her song ‘Kaos’, which had been favourite in the weeks ahead of the show.
So far Slovenia has released an official clip for ‘Sebi’ and more recently these two new versions of the song. There hasn’t been any announcements of performances at the Eurovision pre-parties in Riga, London, Madrid, Moscow and Amsterdam.
So chances are we will have to wait till May to see the new version of “Sebi” being performed live.
Slovenia was drafted for the first part of the first semfinal in Tel Aviv.
