Finnish crossover pioneers WALTARI today release “Helsinki 2021” feat. APRIL ART, the next single from their anniversary album “3rd Decade – Anniversary Edition”, which will be released on 26 November via Metalville Records.
Kärtsy Hatakka about the new version of the WALTARI classic:
“Helsinki has been our most famous song on Spotify. It’s a kind of “love song” about Waltaris headquarter in Finland, filled with romantic phrases in Finnish about the local atmosphere (“Atmosfear”). The German April Art wanted to create their vision about the song and we helped with the basic tracks and the basic programming. Very notable is the awesome vocal performance by Lisa-Marie, also her Finnish!”
April Art comments:
“We were super excited when being asked by Waltari to contribute to this album… Frankly, there’s very little opportunities (maybe none?) to ever work with the Finnish genre pioneers, so we took the chance the minute we could. Once we chose “Helsinki” as the song, it was quite a challenge for Lisa to sing in Finnish for her very first time. Still – it was super fun to do this production and we are proud to be a part of this anniversary album!”
