Poets of the Fall Releases New Single, Partir Avec Moi

This week, as part of their teased "double single", Poets of the Fall have released their second music video and track of the month. The new piece is called Partir Avec Moi and it is really something!

The single comes in the wake of last week's release, featuring their Ultraviolet song, The Sweet Escape. Their latest piece is a translated version, with Marko singing in French, and yes, there's a music video too!

Similar to The Sweet Escape, the accompanying video keeps the same style and feel of its English-version, with a singing-directly-to-camera style, ambitious for a new language.
While Poets of the Fall's first language is Finnish, they tend to sing solely in English with the occasional special pieces featured in live gigs. They have also previously produced the track, for Ima and written Salaisuuksia for Johanna Kurkela, among other work, but traditionally sticks to English for their own songs. Partir Avec Moi is a departure from this making it their first POTF track in a different language!

The music video's director, cinematographer and editor was Miika Hakala, with additional shots by Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen" and with aerial photography by Inspiroiva Creative Oy / Ville Heiskanen, Aaro Vasama ja Aatu Heikkonen. Still photography was by Tiia Öhman and Henri Ilanen, with the latter also acting at the video's gaffer.

Partir Avec Moi is available to buy via Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play, or streamed on Spotify.

A bit of information about the band's history: Poets of the Fall has had a long history with Remedy, which officially started back in 2003 with Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. For the game, POTF created their first song, Late Goodbye based on a poem by Sam Lake. Later, the band returned for Alan Wake, creating the custom songs The Poet and the Muse and Children of the Elder God. Their song War, from their album, Twilight Theater, also made an appearance in the game. Their latest project with the developers has been with Alan Wake's American Nightmare. Balance Slays the Demon was created specifically for the title, and The Happy Song (which also appeared in the album Temple of Thought) also appeared in the game. The song Labyrinth from their Clearview album was inspired by Quantum Break.
