Symphonic rockers NIGHTWISH have shared their eagerly awaited new single Perfume Of The Timeless.

You can watch new video for the single below and suffice to say it is unlikely to disappoint fans.

The track is the first new NIGHTWISH music for four years, and is the first to be taken from the band's upcoming album Yesterwynde, which will be released through Nuclear Blast records on September 20.
Eight and a half minutes of sweepingly orchestrated and epic prog metal grandeur, with an accompanying evolutionary-themed video, Perfume Of The Timless builds slowly as keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen explained earlier this month, it takes almost three and a half minutes for a recognisable chorus to kick in, and when it does, accompanied by a mix of strings and guitar riffs, it adds to the epic feel of the new song. Musically it's very much in keeping with where the band went with 2020's  Human :||: Nature.
