Finnish/Dutch/British symphonic metallers NIGHTWISH are filming the first music video for their forthcoming studio album.
Singer Floor Jansen posted a selfie earlier today (Tuesday, October 1) on her Twitter, along with the following message: "I'm in Helsinki with @NightwishBand to make a music video for our upcoming new album! It's unlike anything we have ever done before and I am enjoying the process of making this very much! It's really something else! And I really can't say anything more...I know...I'm sorry!"
NIGHTWISH's next album will mark the band's second full-length release with Jansen, who has been touring with the group since 2012.
Keyboardist and main songwriter Tuomas Holopainen said last year that the arranging and recording process for NIGHTWISH's follow-up to 2015's "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" album would take most of 2019.
"It's gonna be 10, 11 songs, most likely," he said. "And we're gonna start recording [in the] summer [of 2019], in July, so if everything goes as planned, we're looking at a spring 2020 release."
Tuomas also said that there is a lyrical theme tying together all the songs he has written for NIGHTWISH's next record, but he declined to elaborate, saying: "No other bandmembers have heard anything. We've had some discussions over the things and some of the songs, but it's in such an early stage, and I'm still working at home on my own, so… let's keep it a mystery a while longer."
NIGHTWISH spent much of 2018 on the road in support of its "Decades" compilation.
