“Imaginary Friend” is the first song from VICTORIA’s debut EP “a little dramatic” and this is not a coincidence. The Bulgarian artist says that she had a key role in the creative journey and the track sets the mood of the entire mini-album. The chosen release date for the lyric video is also intentional. “Imaginary Friend” is not a typical love story, focusing on how unrequited love makes you feel.
VICTORIA about “Imaginary Friend”: “Everyone can relate to this story because we all experience something like this. Loving someone with all your heart does not always mean they will love you back. Sometimes the love is unrequited and you just have to move on with your life. The process of moving forward will be told by another song from the album. The stories of “a little dramatic” are well connected and I am sure when we present all the songs the pieces of the puzzle will come together.”
“Imaginary Friend” is written by VICTORIA, Cornelia Wiebols and Irma Eriksson Wadström and is produced by Cornelia Wiebols and Oliver Björkvall. The song was written during a songwriting session at the Bulgarian seaside in the summer of 2019.
“Dive Into Unknown” will be the next release from VICTORIA’s potential Eurovision 2021 songs. The premiere of the lyric video will be on Monday at 20:00 Bulgarian time (19:00 CET) via eurovision.icard.com and via the official YouTube channel of VICTORIA.
After all the songs are released, a special online platform will be launched which will allow music fans around the world to leave comments and feedback about the 6 potential songs. This will be part of Bulgaria’s selection process for Eurovision 2021. VICTORIA and her team will also look for feedback from focus groups specialising in music, TV, radio and Eurovision experts to make their final decision.
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.
