Slovenia - Straight Into Love - Hannah

16 - 8 pts in semi 1

Hannah (Hannah Mancini) sang for Slovenia in Malmö. The singer and song were selected internally this time.
The song,  premiered on Valentines day, is titled Straight Into Love.

The song is written by Gregor Zemljič, Erik Margan, Matija Rodić and Marko Primožak.

A slightly altered version was made for Eurovision.

An early 1-track promo (cd-r) has been issued, but no other cd was made for the contest. Instead a flyer with download links was given to the press in Malmö.
I don't know if the cd-r includes the first or second version of Straight Into Love.
Beware: Fakes are being offered on e-bay

Lyrics for a french version have been published, but I don't think it has been recorded.

The WD2N remix was also to be released (according to Hannah's Facebook), but so far no sign.

Hannah entered the Slovenian selection in 2011 together DJ Sylvain and Mike Vale with the song Ti Si Tisti (You're the one) which was also recorded in English as Nothing But Love Will Do.

Hannah has been guest vocaling on several club tracks but in the last few years she was mainly active as the singer of the band XEQUTIFZ, a dance outfit touring the Slovenian and regional clubs extensively. The have recorded a few singles both in Slovenian and English.
