"Ktheju tokës" ([kθɛˈju tɔˈkəs]; English: Return to the land) is a song by Albanian singer Jonida Maliqi that will represent Albania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel.[1][2]

In an interview with Eurovision fansite Wiwibloggs, Maliqi revealed that the song was written "for Albanians, for immigrants, for all the people around the world". The lyrics deal with the topic of Albanian emigration, especially in relation to the Kosovo War.[3]
