Symphonic metallers Nightwish will release their new album, Endless Forms Most Beautiful, on March 27 via Roadrunner Records.
This album is the first to feature Dutch singer Floor Jansen. The album was recorded at the Röskö Campsite in Kitee, and Petrax Studios in Hollola and produced once more by Holopainen, & Tero “Teecee” Kinnunen. The 2CD release also features an instrumental version of the album in its entirety.
First single Élan will precede the full-length album on February 13. “’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.’ This beautiful quote from my hero Uncle Walt [Walt Whitman] was the starting point for writing Élan,” adds Holopainen.
