For the past 25 years, Belgian band Hooverphonic has blurred the lines between symphonic soundscapes and highly infectious pop tunes. Never one to place all of his eggs in one basket, frontman Alex Callier has always strived to deliver quality songs, sung by the best singers in the business.

Lead singer Geike Arnaert has returned to Hooverphonic. The 41-year-old singer was already a part of the band from 1997 to 2008. Exactly 20 years after the release of Hooverphonic’s album “The Magnificent Tree” and in advance to their upcoming participation at the Eurovision Song Contest they felt it was the right time for a reunion.

Alex Callier, member of the band, said: “All three of us felt an urge to start working again. We are still the ‘core of Hooverphonic’ which is for a lot of people the main setup of the band”

The band's work has been put to good use in television series, commercials and movies around the globe, and songs like Mad About You, Vinegar & Salt, Eden and Romantic have become cornerstones of Belgium's musical heritage. In 2020, the band celebrates the 20th anniversary of their landmark album The Magnificent Tree.

Lyrics of The Wrong Place

I wake up, and I think I could use another drink I'm reaching for a smoke to forget about last night I get up cause I need a shot of instant remedy I put a record on that makes me think about last night It all ended in the weirdest trip you started acting way too hip That's why I ignored you for a long, long time but then you had the best opening line You're in the wrong place You're lying next to me. I don't know where to hide I see your smiley face that makes me wanna cry What was I thinking cause all we did was fight Don't you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash T-shirt You're in the wrong place You wake up, and you think You won't need another drink You don't want me to smoke Though I didn't stop last night You get up cause you need an organic cup of tea You put a record on That makes you think about last night You confused me with your blurry eyes Thought you were a different kind of guy That's why I took you to my messy place but it felt as if we were in a different space. You're in the wrong place You're lying next to me I don't know where to hide I see your smiley face that makes me wanna cry What was I thinking cause all we did was fight Don't you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash T-shirt You're in the wrong place Don’t you ever dare to wear my Johnny Cash T-shirt
