Symphonic metal legends Nightwish have officially launched the pre-order for their upcoming album “Yesterwynde”, and shared the music video for its first single, a track titled “Perfume Of The Timeless”, a beautiful song that provides a taste of the grandeur, drama, and heaviness the new album has to offer.

Tuomas Holopainen recently spoke to Kerrang! magazine, and shared some details about “Perfume Of The Timeless”: “When we had the first meeting with Nuclear Blast, talking about the new album and singles, I told them the first single will be a song called ‘Perfume Of The Timeless’ and it’s eight and a half minutes long and the chorus comes in at 3:30. And they were, like, ‘Perfect!’ I think that has to do with the fact that we have a long legacy. You know, we can do whatever we want, and I do, but it says something that we can do that when I heard that for Spotify it’s good to have the vocals start after 15 seconds, or people skip it; they don’t have the attention span anymore.”

Holopainen previously shared that “Yesterwynde” took over 3.5 years to create, making it their most meticulously crafted album yet. The new record delves into universal themes like memories, mortality, and humanism, concluding a lyrical trilogy that began with “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” and “Human. :II: Nature”.

With its rich compositions and intricate details, “Yesterwynde” has sparked diverse opinions, being described as the band’s heaviest, most progressive, and most collaborative work. Holopainen hints at its depth, saying, “If something in the composition puzzles you, the words might clear it up”.

“Yesterwynde” will be available as an exclusive 4 LP Boxset with calendar, on exclusive splatter & marbled 2LPs with 16-page booklets and various other strictly limited formats. Pre-order it HERE.
