Back in 2019, Tamta represented Cyprus at the Eurovision Song Contest. The Georgian-born Greek singer did so with her song “Replay”. Despite pre-contest hopes of another top five result, Cyprus finished in thirteenth place. Ever since, Tamta has been releasing new music and looking for new edges to her music. Recently Tamta stated:
“For the first time we let our creativity free, without thinking about commercial recipes at all. We were driven by the appetite for music, the appetite for something new. It is the first time I have entered into this creative process and what you will hear and feel is the Tamta of today artistically. I am very proud of this work! I hope that through my music and my image, at least something small will change in the hearts and minds of the public. I desire that more than universal acceptance and success.”
