The state of Eurovision 2020 has been uncertain and in constant flux over recent weeks. But, if there’s been one constant throughout, it’s that another artist will drop a revamp of their entry for the contest. Up next is Croatia’s Damir Kedžo, who has released a revamped version of his Eurovision song “Divlji Vjetre”.
Damir Kedžo won Dora 2020 at the end of February, giving him the right to represent Croatia at Eurovision 2020. His winning song, “Divlji Vjetre” (“Wild Winds”), has already hit number one on the Croatian chart.
But, to ensure that the entirety of Europe also gets behind the song, Kedžo has nipped and tucked elements of the track to make it smoother and more dynamic.

“Divlji Vjetre”: Revamp vs Original
The differences between the original and revamped versions of “Divlji Vjetre” are very subtle. There hasn’t been a complete overhaul of the song. Instead, the changes that have been made have been done so in order to fine tune the track.
During the first verse, the periodic percussion and horn sounds have been intensified slightly. This gives the song more drama and intrigue right from the start, which will hopefully grab people’s attention.
Overall, the mixing of instrumentation and Kedžo’s vocals has been tweaked. There is now a better harmony between the two and the song flows more smoothly throughout the three minutes.
Many fans will be glad to know that the song remains entirely in Croatian. This will be the first time since 2013 that Croatia have sent a song solely in their native language.
