Good news! It has been confirmed that Go_A will be presenting their Eurovision 2021 entry next month.
Finalising the song
In an interview, lead singer Kateryna Pavlenko spoke about the song that they have decided on.
“We are finalising the work on our song. We had several options, but we settled on the best story, in our opinion. I will not tell what it is about, we will wait for the release.
I will say only one thing, the song is based on the folklore of a certain region. It seems to me that we managed to touch on a topic that will be interesting for listeners.”Kateryna Pavlenko on Go_A’s Eurovision 2021 entry
She added, in response to when we can expect to hear the song:
“I think somewhere in February. We are not in a hurry, because we will still finalise the mastering and construction. The song is ready, but some points still need to be finalised.”Kateryna Pavlenko on when the song will be revealed
Preparing for Rotterdam
Furthermore, Kateryna was asked how Go_A are preparing for the contest.
“The main issue was the choice of the song. We decided on it just a few days ago and now we will think about the number. We have a certain concept in our head, we understand what our theme is and how we can implement it in terms of music and visuals.
Now we will focus more on the visual part and on how to present this song to a wide audience.”Kateryna Pavlenko on Go_A’s preparations
Go_A will perform in the second half of the first semi final on 18 May.
