Sakis Rouvas, the Greek hope for the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, will be releasing his new album very soon. The album bears the same title to the first single which is dedicated to his three weeks old daughter by top model Katia Zygouli.

Sakis' new album, Irthes (You came), composed and produced mainly by Dimitris Kontopoulos, will be released in the following days in Greece. It will contain nine tracks as well as his summer hit Se thelo (I want you) which spent 10 weeks at #1 of the Greek National Airplay List.

In a recent interview with popular Greek weekly magazine Downtown, Sakis talks about the reasons that made him return to the Eurovision Song Contest: " Placing third was a very good position but I feel I have left something unfinished. And I want to return to complete it. I wasn't all I could really be, all I can actually be under the current circumstances." He also returns for the experience: "It was the experience of a lifetime for meat every level", Sakis admits, "you are part of a team which supports you. They are right there beside you and all this good energy is focused on you to represent Greece, something which is a great honour and overwhelming at the same time".

Sakis performed his new single, Irthes, last night during the X Factor, live for the first time on Greek television. Irthes was composed by Dimitris Kontopoulos, who will also be behind his Eurovision entry.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
