The Finnish group Vorna just released a new single titled ”Yksin” (translated ”Alone”) from upcoming new album “Ei valo minua seuraa” (“No Light Follows Me”), which will be released on December 4, 2015 through Inverse Records. Check out the music video below.
As the name might suggest, the “Yksin” music video displays extremely dark and melancholic soul landscapes in a very rich visual package. As a song ”Yksin” represents slower material of the new album. Director-guitarist Arttu Järvisalo comments on the new clip:
“I think a few years we mulled it over and over - should we do it or not? Even before the song material of the new album was finished, it was quite clear for me that we would do the video for 'Yksin,' if any video at all.

Vorna's lead vocalist Vesa Salovaara shared a few words about the album recordings: |This year has most certainly been Vorna’s busiest one to date and the whole album making process was quite intensive experience as well. The song material was constantly evolving from the earliest demo sessions in April all the way to the mixing which took place in July. As a result we think we’re holding our most mature, diverse and also, in a way, darkest album yet.
"Still, neither risks nor untamed intuitive ideas were avoided and we believe that one might find even somewhat surprising shades from it’s depths. Lyrically 'Ei valo minua seuraa' is dealing with quite universal and timeless themes. More...
