Auri, the band featuring Tuomas Holopainen (Nightwish), Troy Donockley (Nightwish), and Holopainen’s wife Johanna Kurkela, have premiered a new song titled “The Valley.” This track is from the group’s new album “II – Those We Don’t Speak Of,” which will be released on September 3. Holopainen commented:

“‘The Valley’ is an ode to homecoming. It’s about things worth a long wait, and about all the wondrous waypoints on the road. And while you’re wandering on that road, why not write a little tune to keep you company. A tune most delicate and hard to catch, but willing to reveal itself once you’ve made your journey, and have almost reached home.”
