Hooverphonic has revealed the song they will bring to the Eurovision stage. The trio will perform ‘Release Me’, written by Alex Callier and Luca Chiaravalli, author of Occidentali’s Karma.
Hooverphonic formed in October 1995. The band originally called themselves Hoover, but later changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name and to avoid any legal issues with the vacuum cleaner of the same name. Over this time, they have had three #1 albums in their native country, including 2016’s ‘In Wonderland’.
Belgium has had a hard time the past two Eurovision contests and have not made the Grand Final since Blanche took ‘City Lights’ there back in 2017 in Kyiv. Could Hooverphonic be the one to take them back to the big stage?
