Released February 13th, 2015 ‘Élan’ is the first single of their
eighth studio album
‘Endless Forms Most Beautiful’.
According to Tuomas
"the underlying theme of the song is nothing less than the meaning of
life, which can be something different for all of us. It's important to
surrender yourself to the occasional 'free fall' and not to fear the
path less travelled by."
“Today, in the year of our Lord 2005, Tuomas was called from the cares of the world. He stopped crying at the end of each beautiful day. The music he wrote had too long been without silence. He was found naked and dead, With a smile in his face, a pen and 1000 pages of erased text.”
