Victoria commented that:
“There are less than 3 days until the release of the first song from my EP, “a little dramatic”. I am proud that I can finally share my new music with the world. This would be impossible without iCard, BNT and Ligna, who for a second year are making my Eurovision journey possible. I am grateful for the support of my amazing team. We had the ambitious task to release not one, but 5 new songs and I hope people will enjoy them.”
Once all six of the songs have been presented to the public and online platform will be launched to allow fans to leave feedback on the song they want to see at Eurovision.
