And it’s a midnight type of a surprise coming all the way from the land of fire. Azerbaijan’s Eurovision entry “X My Heart” by Aisel gets released on Spotify.
The talented performer has decided to go for something more modern and radio friendly than her usual jazzy style. However, we do expect the song to take on a whole new dimension once the rehearsals start. Aisel’s strong vocals are truly the star of the track and she completely lives up to her potential here.
An international team to work with project
The song has been arranged by Tim Bran, the man behind the production of “City lights”, the Belgian entry back in 2017, who has also worked with several well-known artists such as, The Verve, London Grammar, Birdy, Halsey, Bloc Party and others.
“X my heart” has been recorded in London and the mix of the song belongs to Ash Howes, internationally recognised for his mix work for One Direction, Dido, The Corrs, Ellie Goulding and many others. Fokas Evangelinos, the legendary Greek stage director will work with Aisel on her performance. Fokas is responsible for some of the most memorable numbers in the history of the Eurovision song contest, such as the winning acts of Helena Paparizou and Dima Bilan, the runner up numbers of Ani Lorak and Farid Mammadov and of course the stage presentation of Sergey Lazarev who in 2016 won the viewers vote.
