Finland: Listen to “Release Me”, Darude’s first potential Eurovision entry

The first… out of three! Viewers and a professional jury will select the singer’s entry for Tel Aviv on March 2

The first out of the three songs that will compete to fly the Finnish colours at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest has already been presented. Darude has been working hard on having three potential entries in order to let the viewers and professional music industry jury choose which of them fits him and Sebastian Rejman best to represent the nation at the biggest music competition in the world.

The first tune is called “Release Me” and has been written by Darude himself alongside Jaakko Manninen and Brandyn Burnette. You can give it a listen below:



Darude will present another two potential Eurovision songs on February 15th and February 22rd. All three entries will be performed during a special edition of UMK (Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu) on the 2nd of March at Turku’s Logomo.


Former Eurovision winner Emmelie De Forest will be the guest star performing in the event.

Tickets for the show are still available on

Last year, Finland managed to make it through to Saturday’s grand final with Saara Aalto’s Monsters. Will the country of snow and rock music get to achieve Eurovision glory again with Darude?

Finland was allocated to perform at the first semi-final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv on May 14th during the Semi-Final Allocation Draw.
