A new unofficial EU referendum campaign song has been released with the title "Slovakia". The song was one of those that originally failed to be selected as the official anthem for the campaign.
The new song is not backed by the government campaign to encourage Slovaks to take part in next week's referendum on entry to the EU, according to Péter Miklós, spokesperson for Deputy Prime Minister Pál Csáky, who is responsible for the campaign.
The official campaign anthem was withdrawn when it was discovered that the original songwriters had not given permission for its use.
