My first single "Fire" out March 25!

I am so proud to announce that my first solo single is called "๐…๐ข๐ซ๐ž" and will be released on March 25! Together we've been through such a journey, and this is the next step, next chapter. I couldn't be more excited to share this with you and hopefully share this feeling of fire with you.

Floor has revealed on FloorWorld the cover art for her upcoming first single 'Fire'. She asked not to share it elsewhere before it's publicly revealed tomorrow, so I'll update this post tomorrow with the actual image. In the meantime it is available on FloorWorld if you create a free member account. It's a picture of Floor with fiery rings around her head, it's actually very nice! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

It was to be expected! Anyway, here goes:

Looking good, but enough teasing already, let's hear the music! ๐Ÿ˜ March 25.

Proud to announce that I have signed with ADA Music! ๐Ÿ˜„

I'm not sure I get it, it's an "independent distributor" part of Warner Music. ๐Ÿค”

Isn't Nuclear Blast as subsidiary of Warner?

I don't think they are, or at least I can't seem to find anything about it on the Internet.

There's also a video coming on the 25th for the song Fire. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Lyrics:
ย 

Quote

ย 

Muted are the days, we lost our will

Frozen in a whirlwind that stands still

Time itself is silent, the silenceโ€ฆ

ย 

Longing for some warmth back on our face

Find a way to get out of this maze

Scream away the silent, the silence

ย 

Shadows all around us

Set alight the dark

FIRE

The pounding of our hearts

FIRE

Ignite the fading spark

FIRE

Burn the silence down

Let the fire out

ย 

Give this heat a voice and raise it high

No more smoldering ashes of โ€œโ€˜went-bysโ€

Keep the fire going, and burning

ย 

Shadows all around us.

Only formed in light, we

ย 

Set alight the dark

FIRE

The pounding of our hearts

FIRE

Ignite the fading spark

FIRE

Burn the silence down

Let the fire out

ย 

FIRE

FIRE

Ignite the fading spark

FIRE

Burn the silence down

Let the fire out

ย

Ok just saw the video (I know I'm late, working my ass off! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)...

The pop look will take some getting used to, but the video is very nice! Has Floor the required credentials now for Eurovision? ๐Ÿ˜

If you're interested in the credits for the song:

Among other things, Gordon Groothedde co-wrote After Forever's Energize Me.

I really like the song. I give her credit for taking the risk.ย

Just gave the new song a listen. All I say is "wow, that was amazing". It almost had those Evanescence vibes out from the Synthesis era during the choruses and the verse definitely had that powerful side with outstanding lyrics and a unique structure.

The beginning had a little RY X chill vibe to it. He's good to listen to while winding down.ย

I was wondering who did the Vid. But it's in the credit list ...ย ๐Ÿ‘

Yes, Floor didn't use any professionals already involved in Nightwish. It appears to be a completely new team for this solo endeavour.

I posted the lyrics as well. In her single release live stream, she says this song is basically about the pandemic and going back to life.

Also she will perform live mid-April at Paaspop (Netherlands), a show postponed from 2021.

Tomorrow (Sunday) at Paaspop is Floor's first solo show since AFAS in September 2021, and also the last of her tour. I expect her to sing 'Fire' live for the first time, and perhaps this will be a shorter setlist due to it being a festival.

Which reminds me that we haven't had a new AFAS video in about a month now, what's the hold up?

I've shared to our YouTube channel this video of Floor's karaoke performance of Colors Of The Wind (from the Pocahontas animation movie).

Now I know this was filmed in a Thailand resort with the whole band on holiday. But I can't remember if it was during the Imaginaerum or EMFB tour, or a more precise date?

The video quality is poor, but any patrons that night must have been impressed with the 'amateur' singer! ๐Ÿ˜†

I don't have the full setlist, but a number of recordings have surfaced on YouTube.

Henk Poort took the stage again for Phantom Of The Opera (and Dangerous Game):

And Oblivion was performed live for the first time:
