But ahead of the reveal there has already been a release of the snippet which you can listen here and also the whole audio seems to be available at the video below
Alexandra Redde-Amiel is the new head of the French delegation and in the interview which you can read here in French , Redde-Amiel states that the French delegation opened up the songwriting and production process to an international audience for the first time and the artists Tom Leeb was selected after the song had already been written for Eurovision 2020
After asking her why did they cancel “Destination Eurovision” Redde-Amiel replied that after her conversation with Delphine Ernotte and Takis Candilis they realized that finding 18 very good songs is not possible in their expert opinion and it is hard to find a unique song which can, later on, win Eurovision. They put their energy to find and prepare a song which is worthy to grace the stage of Eurovision and then select the artist ready to perform it and after receiving more than 100 songs that is how they first chose “Best In Me” and after that they selected Tom Leeb as the singer.
