NIGHTWISH Announce Partnership With World Land Trust International Conservation Charity Organization; Video Featuring New Track "Ad Astra" Posted

Recently, Nightwish announced their ninth record, Human. :II: Nature., that will be released on April 10th. It will be a double album containing 9 tracks on the main CD, and one long track, divided into eight chapters on CD 2.

Today, Nightwish announce their partnership with the international conservation charity organization called World Land Trust. For more information, check the following video clip (featuring the track "Ad Astra" from Human. :II: Nature.), or visit the World Land Trust website here.

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. In 2020 he’s certain to achieve his objective once again.

The long-awaited record, following 2015’s critically-acclaimed 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.

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.
