A USB stick with audio's, video, bio's and photos was used for promotion in Lisbon.

S Tobom
On December 8 Franka released her album S Tobom. (Karpo Media CD 10181202)
It includes Crazy and the Midnight version of the song.
I've seen the CD available at a few Croatian online stores like Cedeterija and Dancing Bear but I have no experience with buying (internationally) from these sources.
And there's always digital.

Franka tried to get to Eurovision before. In 2009 she performed Pjesma Za Kraj (The final song) in the Croatian selection Dora and finished 7th.
In 2010 she ended 7th again in Dora with Na Tvojim Rukama (In your arms).
In 2011 she recorded one of the early versions that eventually became Celebrate (by Daria Kinzer). HRT shared this one to the public through soundcloud two years ago. Listen to it here.

Midnight session DRI
Songwriter Branimir Mihaljević co-wrote the 2010 Croatian entry Lako Je Sve by Feminnem.
This one didn't make it to the final ending 13th in the 2nd semi.
