On May 14th, Nightwish keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen updated his online diary with an update on the upcoming Nightwish album which is expected to contain 12 tracks and hopefully be completed by the end of January 2015.
A big hello from Hattula, Finland. Tero (“TeeCee” Kinnunen) and I have been here for the past 2,5 weeks recording a demo of the new Nightwish songs.
It has come together beautifully and we now have a total of 12 songs to work with. We are all very eager to finally get together and start the rehearsals in July. If everything goes as scheduled, we should have the ready album in our hands by the end of January 2015.
It`s still too early to analyze the material more closely, but the album will once again explore all the ends of the spectrum, bringing the very best out of the newcomers Floor and Troy. And stealthily the album ended up having a theme running through it.
Excited beyond words now! Best wishes to you all,
