‘We have been working on this song for about a year and from the very beginning we knew that this would become the song for ‘Eurovision’. Artem Roschenko had written scores especially for it and we recorded a real symphony orchestra. It was just a fantastic feeling. The last six months we were busy making preparations for the song, combining it with the release of our new album and American tour. In the work on the song we deployed a great number of musicians and sound producers from various countries. We have included various world music trends, so we hope to be heard not only in Ukraine, but also throughout the world’ – comments Oleg Sobchuk, the leader of SKAI.
37 members of the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine Broadcasters (conductor – Vladimir Shejko) were involved in recording of the new song.
