Black Sabbath guitarist, Tony Iommi has co-written the Eurovision entry for Armenia.

This year’s entry to the pan-European music contest from the Eurasian country is called ‘Lonely Planet’ and is to be performed by singer Gor Sujyan and his band, Dorians.

Iommi said of the news:

“Well here’s something different, one of my demo ideas has been chosen as the Armenian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest! It went on a shortlist and Saturday night was voted as the winner. I did the music and the performing band Dorians wrote the lyrics. It’s called ‘Lonely Planet’. They’re a good band, the singer has a really good voice and the lyrics they’ve written are in English”.

This year’s Eurovision song contest is held in Sweden during May.
