With the Eurovision being staged later this week (the semi-final is on Thursday, with the main event on Saturday), it is perhaps timely that Dana International
is back with her first single release for coming on five years.
A star in Israel as well as across the middle east prior to the eurovision, Dana’s performance was in many ways the logical conclusion of the competing elements of Eurovision; camp, hi-nrg pop, nodding to the mainstream appreciation of more middle eastern sounds in pop as well as really crossing gender boundaries (this year, the contest features two drag queens).
The first track off her forthcoming album was released in March, and is entitled Hakol ze letová (It's all for the best), and ticks all the boxes that will get the boys in tight tops very excited this summer with its' euro-pop hi-nrg feel.
