As they announced before, Nightwish are releasing their new single today from the upcoming album Endless Forms Most Beautiful. The first song you get to hear is called “Èlan” and you can watch the video for it here. It was directed by Ville Lipiäinen. After much anticipation, are you pleased with this first single and the video?
The song has surfaced online in advance of its release and Nightwish have issued a statement regarding the online leak here.
Tuomas Holopainen commented: “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’).”
