Hovi Star (חובי סטאר) won the Israeli preselection with the song Made Of Stars.
Made Of Stars is written by Doron Medalie (דורון מדלי‎) who also gave us last years Golden Boy.
In the preselection HaKokhav HaBa L’Eirovizion (הַכּוֹכָב הַבָּא), the song was also performed by Nofar Salman.

A new version was recorded for Eurovision.
Made Of Stars has been turned from a more uptempo song into a ballad now.
Watch and listen here

A 1-track promo is issued.

Remix DRI
The  new ballad version was released as a digital single but seems to be replaced at several download shops with the Eurovision edit.
The Eurovision edit cuts a bar from the intro.
Made Of Stars (ESC version) is released as a digital single on March 30 through the usual sources.
See versions below.

Sagi Kariv Remixes
A remix was released through several Israeli download shops and through iTunes on April 10, but it's under Hovi's Hebrew name. (see comments) You'll also find the single version under חובי סטאר.
You can also listen through Hovi Star's Youtube.
An extended version can be heard at Sagi Kariv's Youtube.
