Finnish/British/Dutch symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH will release their ninth studio album, “Human. :II: Nature.”, on April 10 via Nuclear Blast. The long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” will be a double album containing nine tracks on the main CD and one long track, divided into eight chapters on CD 2.

“When Nightwish announce a new studio album people tend to take notice. They know that something special is brewing. Band leader Tuomas Holopainen once said that whenever he creates a new record he has the intention of capturing something rare and unique, a monument and a true album experience” reads the official announcement.

“Human. :II: Nature.” was recorded from August to October 2019 at Röskö campsite, Petrax Studios and Troykington castle, as well as Finnvox Studios, by Tero Kinnunen, Mikko Karmila and Troy Donockley. The mixing was done by Mikko Karmila at Finnvox, with Tuomas Holopainen and Tero Kinnunen. Mastering was done by Mika Jussila at Finnvox.
