NEW SINGLE “ANOTHER WORLD”
RELEASED FRIDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2018

ORDER THE SINGLE FROM ITUNES, SPOTIFY,
APPLE MUSIC, DEEZER & GOOGLE PLAY

To dovetail her upcoming UK tour that kicks off on Tuesday November 6th at London’s Borderline, European Blues Award winner Erja Lyytinen is pleased to announce the Friday 5th October release of her new single “Another World”. Self-released on Erja’s own label, Tuohi Records, it’s the second single, followingWithout You, taken from her upcoming new studio album that will be released in early 2019.

Order the song from iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer & Google Play.

The song describes a fictional love story in a parallel universe. Written and composed by Erja Lyytinen herself, the song was recorded in Finland, mixed by Chris Bell in Austin, Texas, and mastered by Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles.

The new single will be accompanied by an amazing music video to be released on Friday 5th October.

The video was made by Darknoise Productions, who have also worked with Erja on her previous music videos (“Stolen Hearts” and “24 Angels”). Lost in the world of dystopia a woman is imagining living her perfect life on another planet. There is a parallel universe free of pollution and darkness, a fantasy world that has not been damaged by modern technology, but has beauty, love and nature.

“The song has a lot of meanings,” says Erja. “First of all, it is a love story. It´s a dream about loving somebody in another dimension, because it´s not possible in this world. I have always loved sci-fi movies, so I wanted to add something extraterrestrial and supernatural to the video, too.  Also, it is pointing at how important it is for us to be aware of environmental aspects. Do we need to find another planet someday to be able to breathe? All this has been wrapped together by these two worlds happening at the same time, and how in the end it is important that we as lovers, and as a human race, could survive.”

Erja continues: “We added big guitars on the track and it has a guitar solo inspired of blues rock – guitarists such as Eric Gales and Jimi Hendrix. The melodic 80´s rock music was also a source of inspiration while writing the song. Heart is one of my all-time favourite rock bands, and when performing their hit song “Alone” on Stars Stars on National TV last year, it kind of brought me back to that music style.”

“ANOTHER WORLD”

Lyrics & Music: Erja Lyytinen
Arrangement by: Erja Lyytinen, Tatu Back, Iiro Laitinen

In another world there´s you and me
See us raising a family
No machines no noise around
Just happiness and love profound
Yellow roses, rosemary

Pick a berry from a tree
Everyone is growing no-one tearing down
If you want to harvest you need to nurture the ground

We´re caring cause we need to grow
We´re dreaming cause we want to know

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive

These empty rooms my reality
Co-existence my fantasy
Cause if we could leave here now
we could take off from the ground
We would see this current world is upside down

We´re caring cause we need to grow
We´re dreaming cause we want to know

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive

There´s another world for lovers in a parallel universe
There´s another world for lovers
There´s another world for lovers in a parallel universe
There´s another world for lovers
There´s another world for lovers in a parallel universe
There´s another world for lovers

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters Is that we survive

If we could find another planet
Together we could travel high
The only thing that really matters
Is that we survive
