After a long wait, Vasil has presented his new Eurovision song ‘Here I Stand’ for Nort Macedonia. The singer and song title became public earlier in the season already.

Vasil was due to compete in the 2020 contest with the song “You” before the event’s cancellation. The year before that he took part as one of the backing singers for Tamara Todevska, who qualified and finished in seventh place in the final after winning the jury vote with the song ‘Proud’.

The song will take part at the first Semi-Final on Tuesday 18 May.

Listen to Vasil’s new song ‘Here I Stand’ below:

Borche Kuzamovskia (of the Skopje-based rock band Nokaut) and fellow Macedonian musician Davor Jordanovski have worked alongside Vasil on the arrangement and production. The video was partly recorded with a live symphonic orchestra in the nation’s capital.

Former members of the Chicago Children’s Choir, in which Vasil participated as a child, recorded the backing vocals.
