Always is a mixture of European sounds and traditional Azeri music. The author of the song Arash confessed that it was his idea to create a unique composition which would be associated with Azerbaijan and its culture.
In the intro you can hear Azeri national instrument called tar. For the authenticity of the sound a well-known Azeri tarist Sahib Pashazade was involved in the recording process.
The second performer, AySel admitted that this song is very intimate to her because she's waiting for such a strong and romantic feeling for herself as she can find and sing in this song.
"I’m 19 and I can tell you that I was in love," AySel said. "But now I’m waiting for such a strong feeling in my life, like that one we are singing about with Arash in our song. I can’t wait to find that special someone who will be always in my heart."
It's the second time Azerbaijan takes part in the Eurovision Song Contest, las year their entry Day After Day by Elnur and Samir achieved the 8th place in the Final last year in Belgrade.
