They missed out on Eurovision 2019.
But this year Bulgaria is back and means business.
Victoria‘s song for Eurovision 2020 “Tears Getting Sober” will premiere March 7.
And in a behind the scenes video, the 22-year-old has teased further details on the song.
For starters, as she was involved in the songwriting, the track is “personal” for her.
Bulgaria’s Eurovision team on “Tears Getting Sober”
Victoria also shared insight on the story behind the song.
The star says, “The story behind the song is how you can go through your problems and move on.”
Bulgaria’s delegation has once again drafted in Symphonix for songwriting.
Decorated songwriter Boris Milanov says mental health issues have been a big inspiration.
“At the sessions two young people had strong panick attacks and had to go to hospital,” the “Nobody But You” hitmaker reveals.
“That was a big shock to us…and at some point it turned out the message of the song was about today’s generation and their problems with mental health issues.”
If the subject matter sounds dark, fans should be assured that the actual theme of the song is perseverance.
“The message is that there is still hope, and your only way out is to fight and face your fears.”
Milanov adds, “It’s better to have a scar instead of having a wound that’s always open.”
