Way back in December Lindita won the Festivali i Këngës with her song Botë and won the right to represent Albania at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Now Lindita has released the totally revamped version of her song in English. It is entitled World.
The new studio and final version has a more polished production. It is a power ballad with a lot of emotion. She has also released the official video to accompany the song.
You can see the official preview video of World below.
So, we have the first song for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Albania have selected Lindita to represent them in Kiev in May next year. Lindita won the Festivali i Këngës 55 in Tirana with her moody and dramatic ballad, Botë (World). The song will probably be given a drastic makeover for the Eurovision next year.
The voting was a combination of expert jury and for the first time this year public voting. Botë was composed by Gerald Xhari and Klodian Qafoku
