The single was released on 8 February 2013[8] and it was placed at number 21 in the Eurovision Final. However, the single gained success in Germany, peaking at number 6, becoming their first top-ten single since "Evacuate the Dancefloor" (2009) and their fourth top-ten overall.[7] The third and last new song "The World Is in My Hands" will also be a single, with a video being released on 19 July 2013.[9] The single was released on 2 August 2013.[10]
