Baker is the son of a professional hockey player and player hockey himself up to the top Swiss U20 league for Lausanne but then focused on his career as a singer and songwriter.
The 28-year-old had two platin albums in Switzerland, won seven Swiss Music Awards and a WorldMusic Award and was the starting act on tours of Shania Twain, Bryan Adams and Johnny Hallyday.
Baker wrote “Here We Go” together with Swiss DJ Yves Larock, best known for his single “Rise Up” that was a number-one hit in 45 countries in 2008.
“When I received the offer from the World Championship Organizing Committee, I was of course excited as a former hockey player and sport fan.”
Gian Gilli, Director of the 2020 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Organizing Committee, said: “It is great that with Bastian Baker a young, hockey-crazy artist performs the World Championship song. That he’s from the World Championship venue Lausanne and known outside of our country’s borders makes him the ideal interpreter for our World Championship song.”
