Israel’s public broadcaster reveals the song that pop star Noa Kirel will be performing when she represents the country at the Eurovision this year in Liverpool.
Titled “Unicorn,” the three-minute track is largely in English with a handful of lines interwoven in Hebrew.
“I’m gonna stand here like a unicorn/ Out here on my own/ I got the power of a unicorn/ Don’t you ever learn,” she sings in the chorus. “That I won’t look back/ I won’t look down/ I’m going up/ You better turn around/ The power of a unicorn.”
Kirel, 21, says that “Unicorn” is a “song that represents all of us, the whole country, so I hope and want that everyone will support this song” at the 2023 Eurovision in Liverpool in May.
The song was co-written by Kirel, Doron Medalie — who co-wrote Netta Barzilai’s 2018 Eurovision-winning song “Toy” — Yinon Yahel and May Sfadia.
