A brand-new KOTIPELTO track, titled "Reasons", has been posted online in MP3 format at this location.
"Reasons" comes off the former STRATOVARIUS singer's sophomore solo album, "Coldness", due in Europe on April 26 through Century Media Records (a May 18 U.S. release is expected). The follow-up to 2002's "Waiting for the Dawn" was recorded by CHILDREN OF BODOM keyboardist Janne Wirman at his Beyond Abilities Studios as well as by Tero Kostermaa at High and Loud's ELK Studios and Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, where the mixing (Mikko Karmila) and the mastering (Mika Jussila) also took place. Matthias Norén, who has previously worked with bands like INTO ETERNITY, LOST HORIZON and EVERGREY, designed the album's artwork, which is said to perfectly fit the atmosphere of the CD. Additionally, the album will contain the video for the song "Reasons" and a "Making Of" for the video shoot and the album's studio recordings as extras. A CD-single containing the track "Reasons" will be released in Europe on March 22, accompanied by the songs "Seeds Of Sorrow" (album version) and the non-album bonus "Vizier" (extended version of a track originally featured on "Waiting For The Dawn").
