Amorphis' new album Queen Of Time is out now and the band has just premiered their beautiful music video for the song "Amongst Stars." The song and video features vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen (Vuur, ex-The Gathering), which Amorphis frontman Esa Holopainen credits producer Jens Bogren's friend Per Aldeheim for the idea.
"'Amongst Stars' turned out as one of the most solid songs on the album. The song itself was not the easiest one to work with. We tried a lot of different variations during the pre-production and finally Jens‘ co-producer friend Per Aldeheim came up with these great vocal lines and idea for an duetto.
We have been privileged to work with Anneke before so it was pretty clear to ask her to help us out with the song. As everyone knows her voice is more than stunning and she is surrounded by incredibly positive aura.
As a result we have a really beautiful and catchy duetto where both singers do unbelievable work. We are extremely happy that Anneke was available during the time of our recordings and it was great to get her to the video as well. Lucky us."
