First candidate song for Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2019, released earlier today. Darude along with Sebastian Rejman will represent Finland this year in Tel Aviv. Like last year, Yle – Finnish national broadcaster – decided to internal select an artist and then let the public choose between three songs. Today the first song released and as we expected is an uptempo song. “Release Me” as its the songs name is co-written by Darude himself. In the next two weeks, the rest of the songs will be released (one each week). The final of the show will be on the 2nd of March.
Finland in its recent history at the contest had qualified three times (2013, 2014 and 2018) and its best place was in 2014, finishing 11th out of the 26.
What do you think about the first song? Is it going to give Finland its second win? Write your thoughts on the comment box below.
