Bulgaria: Victoria releases her third candidate ESC 2021 entry “Dive into Unknown”
The Bulgarian Eurovision 2021 representative, Victoria, has released this evening the third, out of six candidate songs for Rotterdam, titled “Dive into Unknown”.
Following VICTORIA‘s release of the titles of the songs in the upcoming debut album “A little dramatic” , one of which will travel to Rotterdam next May, the Bulgarian representative released the third candidate entry for Eurovision 2021.
The third entry, titled “Dive Into Unknown” comes after “Ugly Cry”, which was presented in November and “Imaginary Friend”, which was released on 14th February.
The track is penned by Borislav Milanov and Lucas Oscar from Symphonix International alongside VICTORIA. This is the same team who wrote “Tears Getting Sober”, Bulgaria’s 2020 Eurovision entry. Pauline Skött, also known as Skott, and Peter St James were also part of the songwriting team behind “Dive into Unknown”.
“Dive into Unknown” was written during the Black Sea Eurovision Songwriting Camp 2020 in Burgas and Primorsko . The song speaks of the risk diving into the unknown and taking that risk even if you don’t know where it might lead you.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place on 18, 20 and 22 May in Rotterdam. Bulgaria will take part in the second semi-final on 20 May.
