The Finnish entry in this year�s Eurovision song contest, Hanna Pakarinen�s Leave me alone has already been released in Sweden, and it will be released before the final in countries from the UK to Belgium, Austria and Germany.
Germany, UK and Austria will release a two track CD including Leave me alone and Love is like a song, her first single after winning the Finnish Idols in 2004. The version released in Sweden is a one track CD including only Leave me alone; the same one will be released in Belgium as well. The Finnish version of the single features both her Euroviisut entries, Leave me alone and Tell me what to do.
Despite the release of the single Hanna will not be doing any promo gigs in Europe before the final. “We are using the same promotional form we did last year with Lordi” says Mikko Tukiainen, Hanna’s PR man. “Lordi did go to Germany and Sweden last year but they were already known there. Hanna will tour Europe only after the Eurovision.”
