Janek, one of the candidates of this year’s national final of Estonia, Eesti Laul with the song “House of Glass“, spoke exclusively to EurovisionFun and to Stella Gialetzi and Apostolis Matamis.
The singer, after talking about the changes that have come to his life recently due to the competition, referred to his decision to participate in this year’s national final:
“Although music has always been in my life, lately I’ve decided to write more and start collaborating with other musicians. So I decided to join Eesti Laul, as it’s a good way to introduce myself to both Estonian and foreign audiences and to the public of other countries.”
As for the involvement of “House of Glass”, he revealed that it is a song about love and that many people can relate to it. At the same time, it is also a song about the sadness and confusion that a breakup brings to a relationship. He states that the message of his participation can be compared to his effort in musical events, as he has been trying for a long time to succeed in the field and realize his dreams.
“I came up with the chorus melody maybe in my shower but they told me it’s not good! But when I decided to work with Morland (Norway 2015), between several songs he told me that this has the most potential and so we made some changes and ended up with House of Glass!”
Among other things, he himself, talking about his stage presence in the semi-final, commented to us that they don’t want to do much but only what is necessary for the song, while he revealed to us that he will be alone on the stage of Eesti Laul 2023!
His favorite Estonian entries are “Rändajad” by Urban Symphony (2009), while his favorite Eurovision entries are Sweden 2012, Austria 2014 and many other entries that failed to qualify in the Eurovision final.
Just before the end of the interview, Janek offered us a part of his song acapella.
