Ville Valo (VV), one of the pioneers of Finnish “Love Metal,” has released “Echolocate Your Love,” the second single from his forthcoming debut solo album, Neon Noir. The recording is due out in 2023, and more info will be released in due course.

Commenting on the new song, Valo shares:

“It’s a sonic step-by-step guide on how to survive, and perhaps even enjoy, the realm of VV with its abundance of things that go bump in the night. It’s a teary mascara marathon between Robert Smith and Ozzy, with a dash of hope.”

Additionally, VV has a massive headlining tour scheduled for 2023 which will take the artist across Europe, the UK and North America. Several cities are already sold out, so get your tickets now!
