Friday, 22 October 2021

  • The three times Eurovision participant for Cyprus, Constantinos Christoforou,  has returned with his new piece of work titled 'Signomi' (Sorry).

    Fllowing three consecutive radio hits, starting with the upbeat song "Billy Bam Bam" and continuing with the 80's style track  'Diskola ta pragmata' (Hard situation)  and the ethnic single 'S'ena Tetarto' (In a Quarter), Konstantinos Christoforou returns with a new single title of "Sorry" - a word so easily pronounced but so difficult to be meant when said. 

    'Signomi' is a dynamic ballad with folk elements in which Constantinos unfolds his exceptional vocal skills adjusted and perfectly combined with the unique lyrics of Charalambos Prountzos, who also signs the music of the song.

    The song talks about a break up in which Constantinos apologizes for not being able to fight enough for or having the strength to keep the relationship alive. However, his sorry doesn't mean he's taking the blame for the break up. He justifies his choice to take in mind his own interest first in order to find himself. He doesn't want to get into endless discussions of a blame game as it's obvious that the other side has a totally different approach in things.

    Constantinos Christoforou's' new song , is accompanied by an impressive video clip, directed by Giannis Papadakos, released under Minos EMI, a Universal Music Company.

    Constantino's new song is also availiable on all streaming platforms.
