Product Description

Boris Novkovic was born at December 25, 1967 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the former Yugoslavia. His interest in a musical career was cultivated by his family background, with a mother who taught music, and a father, Djordje Novkovic, who was a leading Croatian songwriter and music manager. He released his first album, Kuda idu izgubljene djevojke in 1986, selling 120,000 copies, while his follow-up release in 1987, Jaci od sudbine, was more successful still. Two more successful albums followed: Dok svira radio in 1988 and Obojeni snovi in 1989. In 1990 he narrowly missed out on the chance to represent Yugoslavia at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Dajana", but his second-place finish in the national pre-selection instead secured him a place at the International festival in Kuala Lumpur. Seven more albums followed up to 2003, as well as two "best of" compilations, but few songs were able to match the popularity of the early ones. Perhaps most notable are Struji Struja from the eponymous 1993 album, "Sve mijenja se" from U dobru i u zlu (1995), and "Daleko" from the 1997 album Sve gubi sjaj bez ljubavi. In 2005, fifteen years after his near miss in the Yugoslav pre-selection, Novkovic won the right to represent the now independent Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest. He performed his song "Vukovi umiru sami" ("Wolves die alone") together with members of the Lado ensemble. To win the Dora pre-selection competition on 5 March 2005, they had to vanquish an impressive array of former Croatian Eurovision representatives, including Magazin, Danijela Martinovic, Vesna Pisarovic and Goran Karan. Despite the respectable showing of Croatia's 2004 Eurovision entry "You Are The Only One", the country did not achieve a high enough placing to qualify automatically for the 2005 grand final. Thus Boris' song was performed in the semifinal, where it finished 4th with 169 points, qualifying for the final. Novkovic represented the country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 in Kyiv and finished 11th with 115 points. (from Wikipedia This CD is Hot Off the Press, newly released by Croatia Records, and includes 12 new songs by this extraordinary recording artist, as well as all the lyrics to all the songs so that the listener can sing along!!
