Korpiklaani have premiered a lyric video for their song “Kuin Korpi Nukkuva.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Kulkija.”
Jonne Järvelä commented:
“For some reason, while recording the first demo of this song, I kept hearing it as a traditional tango. I haven’t been able to drop that thought and while playing this live I still hear the tango and drag behind the beat like Topi Sorsakoski. I wanted to leave a trace of that original form and therefore there is a bit of tango in the end of the song. So the tango is not a joke even if it may sound that way. Of course, it is also possible that there is a tongue or even two in cheek, but that was the case with Sorsakoski too.
In a certain way, this is a nice and light song, but still also strong and even a little sad. Tuomas Keskimäki’s lyrics are in line with that. The basic message of the lyrics is the importance of living in the moment, which is also one the fine features of KORPIKLAANI. This band has always been able seize the moment and enjoy life right there and then.”
