Belgian band Hooverphonic have announced that they will be singing ‘Release Me’ in Rotterdam.

Hooverphonic were internally selected as Belgium’s representative in October last year, and have now shared their entry for Eurovision 2020.

‘Release Me’ was played for the first time on Belgian radio station MNM this morning. Band members Alex Callier, Raymond Geerts and Luka Cruysberghs will be making the short trip to the neighbouring Netherlands in May.

Over the course of their 25-year career, Hooverphonic have developed an instantly recognizable sound, blending trip-hop and pop. Singles including ‘Mad About You’, ‘Badaboum’, ‘2 Wicky’, ‘Romantic’ and ‘Eden’ were international successes and form the basis of the band’s live set.

Between 2015 and 2017, Belgium had a great streak at Eurovision with three top-10 finishes. In the last two editions of the contest, however, the nation has failed to reach the final.
