Subscribe to 103.7 The Hawk on

Armenian rockers Dorians will take the Tony Iommi-penned ‘Lonely Planet’ to the Eurovision Song Contest in May. The song’s music video — along with videos for the other 38 entries — has been made available to fans of the band, of Black Sabbath and the international song contest, now in its 58th year.

‘Lonely Planet’ is a socially conscious power ballad that Iommi said he wrote about five years ago. Previously he said he was surprised he was asked to contribute a song for the contention, and even more surprised when his song was chose. The rocker has a relationship with the country, having helped restore life after the devastating 1988 earthquake.

Lonely planet / Who has done it / Who can save you / Who can stop it,” Dorians lead singer Gor Sujyan sings during the chorus. A clip of the second verse includes the lines: “Who has honesty to show / Who can tell us I don’t know / Who’s the man and who’s the God.”

Each band gets to perform on May 14, with the semi-final rounds occurring two days later and the finals on May 18. Viewer votes decide who will move on, with viewers in each country prohibited from voting for their own representative. The contest has been active since 1956, with notable past-winners being Celine Dion and ABBA.
