The video for a new Eurovision version of Omar Naber’s ballad “On My Way” has been shot and will be exclusively premiered this weekend on Sunday 2nd April at 20:00 CET on the Eurovision Song Contest’s YouTube portal.
Since it triumphed at EMA last month, the arrangements of the track have been remixed slightly by arranger Žiga Pirnat for live performance, with the instrumental part of the song being performed by the Budapest Art Orchestra – who were involved in the recording of the 2014 winning song “Rise Like a Phoenix”, which was performed by Conchita Wurst. The alterations were completed via Skype from Los Angeles, where Pirnat works and lives.
The video was shot by the Kolektiv TRETJEOKO and the video includes a dance performance by Jernej Kozan – the winner of the TV show Slovenia’s Got Talent 2015.
In the month before the Eurovision Song Contest, Omar will be undertaking a whistle-stop promotional tour, taking in the UK, Israel and the Netherlands.
On Sunday 2nd April, the night the video premieres, he will perform at the London Eurovision Party event, before travelling from the British capital to Israel, where he will continue to promote the song and perform at Israel Calling on Wednesday 5th April. He will round off the tour with an appearance at Eurovision In Concert on Saturday 8th April, in Amsterdam.
Before embarking on his travels, he will perform this evening at 22:00 CET in Orto Bar with his own band – a specially-prepared concert for his Slovenian fans.
