‘It is unfortunate this was leaked’
As soon as it became apparent that a leak has occurred CyBC has released a statement in regards to the leak. In their statement, CyBC confirms that the demo was recorded during the early discussions between CyBC and Tamta, you can read more about what CyBC has said below:
“With regards to the first demo take of “REPLAY” that allegedly was leaked, we would like to inform you and clarify that it was just that: the very first rough demo recorded in Athens when discussions with Tamta were still at an early stage. It is most unfortunate that this was leaked as it does not reflect the actual song that will be published as planned on March 5th 2019. Stay tuned for the actual REPLAY…”CyBC on the leak of the ‘Replay’ Demo
Tamta will be representing Cyprus with ‘Replay’ The song will be co-written once again by Alex P, and the staging for Tamta’s entry will be created once again by Sacha Jean Baptiste, both who have worked on ‘Fuego’ last year, which managed to go on to become Cyprus’s best placed entry.
