He was one of the first Eurovision 2020 acts to be announced but now we could be getting very close to the release of his song. Spain‘s Blas Cantó has been dropping hints about his Eurovision entry and including a big clue to the song’s title.
On Tuesday, Blas gave an interview with radio station Los 40 to promote an upcoming concert in Barcelona. But while he was there, he also dropped a few hints of what’s happening behind the scenes with his Eurovision entry.
Blas confirmed that his song for Rotterdam is almost ready. And while he wasn’t giving away too much, he did make it clear that the song title consists of only one word. He went on to say that the title of Spain’s entry is “a word that one can appreciate in many languages”.
That’s quite a vague description though: does he mean its a Spanish word that speakers of other languages know too? Or is it a word that’s identical in Spanish and other languages? Is Spain’s song called “Siesta”? “Señorita”? “Chocolate”? “Taxi”, maybe?
Blas also explained how he plans to reveal the song title: he’ll hold a game on social media for people to guess what it is.
Adding to the intrigue, he said that earlier in the month that he had published an Instagram story where the song’s title was mentioned. Sadly, that story was only online for 24 hours.
“RTVE is being very respectful”
Regarding the creative process of his entry, Blas pointed out that the song is almost finished, although the broadcaster hasn’t heard it yet. In fact, he commented that RTVE hasn’t interfered the writing process of the song at all. He does want them to have a say, though.
What’s the song like? Blas has previously said that it will be neither a ballad nor an up-tempo number. He has revealed no new information about the song itself, but he insisted on the idea that its choruses are epic. Hopefully the title is not “Amanecer“, then.
“RTVE is being very respectful,” he said. Blas went on to explain his vision of the staging: “the stage performance has to fly with the song”, he thinks, because “the song allows us to create many things on stage, to have surprises and to touch the sky”. Does this sound like the seventh heaven or more like D mol’s one?
