NIGHTWISH – To Release A New Single In February

  • Print

Nightwish sure have their hands full, as on top of working hard of their upcoming full lenght album, they have officially announced a single entitled Élan will be released on 13th February 2015 via Nuclear Blast. The band's creative force Tuomas Holopainen started the announced with nice quote by Walt Whitman: "Oh, while I live to be the ruler of life, Not a slave to meet life as a powerful conqueror, and nothing exterior to me will ever take command of me," and added ''This beautiful quote from my hero Uncle Walt was the starting point for writing Élan. 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 travelled by. Élan is a wonderful teaser for the full-length album, giving out a little taste, but revealing very little of the actual Journey of Grandeur to come…". So Nightwish fans - mark your calendars. Link
