For the Chinese market a special version of the most popular song from Eiffel65 is included in Marvel’s “Iron Man 3”, in theaters May 3, 2013.
Who would have known that Eiffel65’s “Blue”, sung and danced to by people all over the world, would have been included in the soundtrack for the film about a legendary hero like IRON MAN?
...And that for the Chinese market Eiffel65 would have created a new version of the song sung in Mandarin?
It’s a true story. The group received the request to record “Blue” with a verse sung in Mandarin, which is spoken across most of northern and southwestern China, and to deliver it in 36 hours. So starts the race to find a Chinese teacher in Turin to translate the lyrics of the song, teach the correct pronunciation to lead singer Jeffrey Jey, and assist him during the recording session.
After hours of rehearsal and one sleepless night, finally the track was recorded and sent to the filmmakers. The curiosity of fans will be satisfied next month in all Chinese Cinemas.
From the words of lead singer Jeffrey Jey: “It was a great challenge but I really enjoyed recording it. There were just a few hours to get the lyrics translated, to learn the correct pronunciation, to put it in metric and then to record and produce the vocal track. I must say I'm amazed about the result. Who knows...it could end up being part of the repertoire of my new live set” .
