Laura Voutilainen is back with new material as she is set to release more music from her greatest hits. The Finnish representative in 2002 shot a video clip of her new song Rakkauden soturi (Soldier of love).

The song performed in Finnish was written by Laura herself and the video clip of the song was filmed in Malta few months ago. She is currently taking part in a popular TV show called Strictly Come Dancing broadcasted on MTV3.fin.

The Finnish pop star is still going strong in the local music industry. Her greatest hits are set to be released on 6th October. Laura released her first album in 1994 and she did extremely well by selling over 120,000 copies. The upcoming album is expected to receive positive feedback following the release of six more albums throughout her career.

Laura represented Finland in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest held in Tallin with the song Addicted to you. She ended up in the 20th place receiving 24 points. Laura Voutilainen tried her luck again in 2007 but she did not manage to win the national selection, thus not making it to the Eurovision stage for the second time.
