'The Rest Of The Sun Belongs To Me' From Upcoming Album

»Acoustic Adventures - Volume One«

 

 

Finnish melodic metal icons SONATA ARCTICA should close their European tour »Acoustic Adventures« this week. Unfortunately, it had to be postponed until the end of 2022 (the band's extensive live itinerary can be found below!) Due to obvious reasons. But fans need not worry as the band is bringing a cozy concert atmosphere into their homes in the form of the first part of their two-piece album "Acoustic Adventures,"

due out January 21, 2022 via Atomic. Fire.

 

Consisting of twelve-track acoustic adaptations leading to the SONATA ARCTICA discography, »Acoustic Adventures - Volume One« was recorded and produced by Mikko Tegelman and the band in Studio57, Finland; Tegelman was also responsible for mixing and mastering the album along with bassist Pasi Kauppinen. The artwork of longtime collaborator and compatriot of the quintet, Janne Pitkänen (NIGHTWISH, AURI, etc.) completes the total experience charmingly.

Henrik "Henkka" Klingenberg, US keyboardist: "'The Rest Of The Sun Belongs To Me' was a song that first appeared as a bonus track for Japan in 2003, just when I joined the band. songs for the second tour of »Acoustic Adventures« in 2019, this song somehow kept coming up and we decided to give it a try. Our dear friend Masi Hukari, who joined us on stage for the tour, did a lot of the work on this arrangement in I think his input was really important in the outcome of this song. For this album, we used the live arrangement as a starting point and I don't think the song has changed that much, so what you hear is a slightly refined version of the 2019 tour arrangement.

 

We decided to use this song as the first single as it is really different from the original studio version and as always we prefer to offer something

new and interesting for our fans and for ourselves as well. "
