France’s Eurovision 2020 representative, Tom Leeb, has dropped his new gentle ballad “Run Away” along with its official lyric video.

French Eurovision 2020 star Tom Leeb has released “Run Away”, featuring musician Jérôme Queriaud. This is the second single from his new project “Silver Lining” which began with the release of “Si tu savais” last month.

“Run Away” is a gentle piano ballad written and composed by Leeb and Queriaud themselves. It’s a natural progression from “If you knew” with the two tracks stripping away the production to focus on vocals, lyrics and instrumentation.

Tom Leeb in Eurovision

France 2 selected internally Tom Leeb to defend the French colors at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam . After two year’s of national finals through the format of Destination Eurovision, the broadcaster returned this year to an internal selection.

Tom was set to perforn on Rotterdam Ahoy’s stage his entry “The Best in me” but never had the chance to complete his Eurovision journey as the contest was cancelled due to the covid-19 pandemic. The French act will not be returning next year as his heavy schedule ahead made his comeback not feasible for the next edition.
