“Whenever I’m travelling I always yearn for Scotland and I was talking about this with Victor and he suggested that we work on a song together that would capture that longing and pride.

“This song is really a tribute to all that we love about this country. The thought of the UK leaving Europe is heart-breaking for someone from Austria like me who has been given such a warm welcome here and that is why we have sent the song to the First Minister. I really hope she likes it.”
