There’s something you should know. UMK 2020 is back with a new format to determine who will represent Finland in Rotterdam. Six artists and songs will be competing for the honour. Today, the penultimate song has been released. Sansa has now released her song “Lover View”.
Sansa “Lover View” (UMK 2020)
Established musician Sansa has an electronic style via an indie-folk background. Her song for UMK is described as a “cool and sensual piece of electropop.” The UMK jury describes the song as” classic Nordic pop at its best” and compared the track to something from Swedish pop icon Robyn.
The final of Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2020 will take place on 7 March in Tampere. Hosted by Mikko Silvennoinen and Eurovision veteran Krista Siegfrids, the winner will be decided by televote and an expert jury.
In the past two years, Finland has internally selected its artist and utilised UMK to select their song. This yielded mixed results, with Saara Aalto ending a three year non-qualification streak in 2018 before Darude and Sebastian Rejman crashed out in Tel Aviv.
This year, YLE has abandoned the internal selection and UMK will feature six different artists vying for the right to represent Finland in Rotterdam. Sansa is one of these six artists and will be hoping to take “Lover View” to the Eurovision stage.
