|Malcolm Lincoln singles chronology|
"Siren" is the debut single from Estonian duo Malcolm Lincoln, written and composed by frontman Robin Juhkental. The song represented Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010. The song was produced by Vaiko Eplik, who represented Estonia at Eurovision Song Contest 2003 as part of the band Ruffus, and is featured on the group's full-length debut album Loaded With Zoul.
In December 2009, the song was selected amongst the ten finalists of the Eesti Laul 2010 competition, which determined the country's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest. In an unexpected result, Malcolm Lincoln ended up winning the competition, and thus the opportunity to represent Estonia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Bærum, Norway.
Malcolm Lincoln were drawn to perform in the third slot in the first semi-final, following Russia and preceding Slovakia. They were joined on stage by male singing quartet "Manpower 4" who provided backing vocals. Unfortunately, despite receiving the maximum 12 points from two countries (Finland and Latvia), they failed to qualify, receiving 39 points and placing 14th out of 17 competitors.
The music video for "Siren" was released in late February 2010. It was directed by Hanna Samoson and casts Robin Juhkental walking through a snowstorm with his head fully covered in a larger-than-life paper mask.
