Poets of the Fall Spotlights Lift In New Acoustic Alexander Theatre Session

Throughout 2020, Poets of the Fall have been uploading a special acoustic rendition of their songs each month, recorded at the incredible Alexander Theatre in Helsinki. For August, they did something extra special with a brand new twist on one of their most iconic songs. This month put Lift in the spotlight with Marko's vocals paired with a gorgeous piano backing track. 

Lift was the second single from the band's debut album, Signs of Life, and is still one of their most best-loved and iconic songs. It was initially released on September 9th 2004 as a single, with the CD containing a radio edit, the full edit, and a bonus song The Beautiful Ones. Once released, the song reached #8 on the Finnish Top 40 where it remained there for almost three months. For fans who purchased the Signs of Life album, a special login and password were included to unlock an addition Lift (Dramadance Remix) produced by Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen.

The video was filmed by Tiia Öhman and Markus "Captain Kaarlonen", the latter also recorded, mixed, and edited the piece. Lights were by Tuittu Teivainen. The lighting and camera technician was Henri Ilanen, with extra cameras provided by Studio Varustamo.
