Latvian singer Lauris Reiniks, who represented Latvia in 2003 as a member of F.L.Y. is back with some new music. He has started 2021 by recording a romantic duet, complete with music video for each of the three Baltic states.
The song has been released in all three languages (Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian) in collaboration with three talented singers from those nations, all of whom have previously entered Eurovision pre-selections. The singers are: Alise Haijima (from Latvian X-Faktors and Supernova 2020); Liepa Mondeikaitė (Eurovizijos Atranka 2015) and Luisa Värk (Eesti Laul 2008 and 2015).
In Latvian the song has the title ‘Savējais’ (My Own), In Lithuanian ‘Savi’ (Our Own) and in Estonian ‘Sinuga’ (With You). In all three languages the song and video tell the story of two soulmates, fortunate enough to meet each other early in life. As they waltz through life together, they reaffirm their lifelong love and continually renew their vows to each other.
The music video was filmed at Melngalvju Nams (The House Of Blackheads) in Riga, Latvia which some may remember as the venue for the Latvian Party in Riga back in 2003.
“I wanted to bring some colors, emotions, inspiration and joy in these dark times we’re all going through right now,” explains Lauris, who is the composer and producer of the project. “I was happy to be able to work with these three wonderful duet partners. Hopefully things will get back to normal everywhere soon and, who knows, maybe this song will become the new first wedding dance. At least we’ve been told it sounds like one and that makes us happy. We wish a happy and joyful new year to all Eurovision fans — and perhaps you will find your soulmate this year, the one you will live and dance with forever.”
