The Belgian 2006 Eurovision Song Contest entry Je t'adore will be released in all European countries, before May. The exact release date still has to be determined however. “Releasing the single too early, would be a bad choice, because people might not find it fresh anymore by the time of the contest”, record company EMI says.
Je t'adore has already been delivered to all Belgian music stores, but the record company waits until April with the rest of Europe. “It's difficult to choose the perfect release date”, Erwin Goegebeur (EMI) says.
“We can't release the single too early, because European voters might not find the single fresh anymore by the time of the contest. But it has to be released early enough to create the recognition effect. In Germany for example, a single needs more time to score than in Greece. The international release will be in somewhere in April.”
Je t'adore will be released in all European countries, except for the UK, a very difficult country to conquer. Goegebeur is confident. “Kate Ryan had a few big successes in a lot of European countries, for example with Désanchantée.
