Poets of the Fall Teases Upcoming Single and Music Video Dates for The Sweet Escape and Partir Avec Moi

Next week is shaping up to be something exciting, as well as the Remedy livestream showcasing the "Marshall" mission, Poets of the Fall will also be releasing the music video for Ultraviolet's The Sweet Escape, with an additional surprise coming the following Friday.

For April Fools Day, the group claimed that they would be changing to French as a creative challenge. In the same statement, they said that "titled ”Partir Avec Moi”, the track will be released in 2019, along with a brand new music video to add depth to its story." It turns out that they weren't entirely joking. Earlier this week, the Finnish band teased what they described as a "double single".

Announcing the singles on Twitter, the band revealed "We’ll soon release our third single & video from the Ultraviolet album as… a double single?! 🎼 Yeah, because it will be released in English, and, “quelle surprise”, in French! The Sweet Escape will be out on May 10 and the French version, Partir Avec Moi, on May 17⚠️✅"

- The second single will be called Partir Avec Moi and will go live on Friday 17th May. 

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.
