Victor Crone it’s a Swedish artist, well-known from Melodifestivalen 2015 (Andra Chansen) where he performed together with Behrang Miri with their song “Det rår vi inte för”. This year he decided to compete in Eesti Laul with a song titled “Storm”. It was created in the cooperation with Vallo Kikas, Fred Krieger and Stig Rästa. The trio of artists created before an Eurovision song “Play” for Jüri Pootsmann (ESC 2016), while Stig Rästa himself has represented Estonia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with a song “Goodbye to Yesterday”. Rästa also tried to back to the contest last year with a song titled “Home” but he finished in the TOP 3 (Estonia was represented by Elina Nechayeva and her song “La forza”).
Polscy Fani Eurowizji: How would You define the Eurovision? What is it for You personally?
Victor Crone: A world wide gathering for music and the biggest one in the world.
PFE: What’s Your favourite Eurovision song and why?
Victor: I would say “Euphoria” by Loreen. The song and the performance was a perfect match.
PFE: How do You remember Your cooperation with Stig Rästa?
Victor: Very good, we been writing songs together for over two years now. He’s a great songwriter and a very nice guy.
PFE: Who would You like to cooperate with in the future? Any other Eurovision artist?
Victor: I’m always up for collabs!
PFE: What’s the story behind „Storm”?
Victor: Like in every song it’s up to the listener. But for me it appeals to so many subjects. From love, depression, hate etc. Whatever you might be going through there is always an ending and a “new start”. A reminder to don’t get too caught up, I see the song to be optimistic, a reminder to live life.
PFE: Do You find Yourself inside the lyrics of „Storm”?’
Victor: Of course, very much.
PFE: There are the people who find a bit of Avicii’s vibes in „Storm”, some of them even call it: „Tribute to Avicii”. Are they right in some way?
Victor: And to that I say – Thank You! That’s a huge compliment. But writing it we didn’t have that in mind.
PFE: What are Your musical inspirations?
Victor: The Beatles, 10cc, Jon Bellion, John Mayer, Phlake, to name a few.
PFE: How do You see yourself in 10 or 20 years?
Victor: Happy somewhere
PFE: What are Your musical plans for the near future?
Victor: Except from Eesti Laul I’m working on new material
PFE: You are by now one of the favourites artists to win Your semi-final or even all the Eesti Laul, according to bookmakers, some Eurovision journalist and fans. How do You feel with this kind of opinion and with such an opportunity to represent Estonia?
Victor: That makes me very happy, but that’s just guesses. I’m happy to be a part of this and I will certainly do my best.
PFE: Why Eesti Laul, not Melodifestivalen again?
Victor: I’ve been working in Estonia for over two years writing music and when we wrote this song Stig suggested that we should send it in to Eesti Laul, and so we did, and here we are
PFE: Could You tell us any details about Your future Eurovision performance in Eesti Laul? What can we expect on the stage?
Victor: I can’t tell you too much, but it’s going to be something never done before on a Eurovision stage. (I think)
Victor Crone will compete in the fist semi-final of Eesti Laul tomorrow (January 31) with the song “Storm”
as the 10th performing act!
