Korpiklaani - Release New Single 'Kotikonnut'

Finnish folk metal superstars Korpiklaani recently announced the release of their new studio album entitled Kulkija ("Wanderer") for September 7th, 2018 via Nuclear Blast. To celebrate the start of their summer festival tour, the band has revealed the first single, "Kotikonnut", from their upcoming record. Watch the accompanying lyric video below.

Accordionist Sami, who has also written the track, states: "It's a midtempo song with a lot of melodies. It was surprising how our lyricist managed to write it, he really captured the feeling and the character of the song. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!"

About "Kotikonnut" ("Homestead"): "During his journey, a wanderer yearningly looks back on his home, childhood and the beauty of everything. He remembers running with his girl on the meadow, believing it to last till the end of times. Although his home is now the road and a carriage run by joy, he will still always remember the happiness of his home and youth. At the time the moon was golden, shining everywhere at night, lighting up the otherwise dark countryside and the forest. The wanderer eventually accepts that everything that comes, will one day fade into a distant memory."

It does really sound like typical Finnish pop-rock

Yeah, sounded a little bit soft, and less energetic then what i'm used to from them. Still hoping for good things from this album
