Nightwish will be releasing their highly anticipated new album, “Endless Forms Most Beautiful,” on March 31st via Nuclear Blast, and today the first single and video has been released! The track is titled “Èlan,” and here’s what Tuomas Holopainen said on it: “The underlying theme of the song is nothing less than the meaning of life, which can be something different for all of us. It’s important to surrender yourself to the occasional ‘free fall’ and not to fear the path less traveled by.”
As for the video, he added “The long-awaited NIGHTWISH music video ‘Élan’ is finally here. Inspired by the untold stories of abandoned places around Finland, the video was nearly a year in the making and features some of the most loved Finnish actors and actresses. And also the legendary NIGHTWISH symbol, a snowy owl (Bubo Scandiaca in Latin) called ‘Urho’ (‘Braveheart’).”
Check out the incredible “Èlan” clip below, pre-order “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” today, and don’t forget that Nightwish will be returning to the States in April and May! Those dates are here! Enjoy!
