Months ago we all learnt that Highway will be representing Montenegro in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm and that they were a trio. Now it’s been revealed that Highway will be a quartet from now on!
Petar Tošić, Luka Vojvodić and Marko Pešić will be joined by Bojan Jovovic, who was part of the band No Name, who represented Serbia & Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kiev, coming 7th.
In November 2006, bassist Marko Perić left No Name and Bojan says that’s when the band somehow lost direction and several band members were focussing more on starting solo careers than about the band itself. That’s when Bojan decided to leave the band. He has done some solo projects over the years but says working with a band is still something special to him, that’s why he later founded the band Neon, of which he was part himself as well and now Highway.
”I like the band’s music because it’s different and because they needed a vocalist and keyboard player because they had planned concerts and participation at the Eurovision Song Contest, I decided to join them”, Bojan explains.
He also shares it’s very nice working with the three gentlemen from Highway:
”They’re not afraid to ask for advice, listen to tips and accept criticism and they aren’t vain or fake, despite being the recent stars everyone knows they’ve become in such a short time. I’m 10 years older than them and have 11 years of experience on stage, so that can only help them. We get on well and I’m sure we’ll agree on songs as well”.
Jovovic reveals that, after the song for Eurovision is finished, they will continue recording their album, which will be released near the end of 2016. About the Eurovision entry itself he teases we will find out more in the beginning of next year, but said: ”we stayed in Zagreb recently and did some recordings and our voices matched perfectly!”
