WORLD PREMIERE: “HEART OF AMSTERDAM” “SILENT SEA” 【THE GENTLE STORM】


WORLD PREMIERE: NEW SONG !! HEART OF AMSTERDAM OF GENTLE STORM !!

“Heart Of Amsterdam is a tribute to the city of Amsterdam, the home town of the story’s leading character Susanne. Seventeenth-century Amsterdam was a centre of shipping, shipbuilding, and trade. Amsterdam flourished, and a wonderful city was the result. We shot the video in the centre of Amsterdam. It was freezing cold and I couldn’t move my fingers anymore during the last shots, but it was all worth it. I love how the video turned out!”

“HEART OF AMSTERDAM” はアムステルダムという街に対するトリビュートなの。ストーリーの主役、スザンヌの故郷でもあるわ。17世紀のアムスは航海、造船、交易の中心だったの。とても栄えていて素晴らしい街だったのね。アムスの中心で撮影したんだけど寒くて寒くて最後には指を動かす事も出来なかったくらいよ。でもやったかいがあったわ。このビデオが証明するはずよ。

“Endless Sea is the album opener and it serves as an introduction to our story-based album. Susanne, the main character, sings about her busband Joseph, who has just sailed out on another long voyage to the Far East. We are very excited to offer everybody a first taste of our forthcoming album with the release of these lyric videos. This is such a special album to the both us.”

“ENDLESS SEA” はアルバムの開幕を飾ると同時にこのアルバムのストーリーを紹介する役割を担っているんだ。主役の SUSANNE が夫の JOSEPH について歌っているよ。彼は極東へ長い航海に出たばかりなんだ。僕たちはこのビデオでみんなに新作の雰囲気を伝える事が出来て興奮しているよ。二人にとってとても特別なアルバムだからね。

The album concept is a tale of love, loss, and separation told through the story of two fictional seventeenth-century lovers. A Dutch sailor embarks on a two-year voyage, leaving his wife at home in Holland. The only way for the couple to communicate and keep their love alive during the long separation is through letters. These letters form the basis for the songs on the album.

アルバムは愛の物語。17世紀の恋人たちのフィクションです。オランダの船乗りが妻を残して二年の航海に出ました。二人が長く離れている間、愛を確かめる手段は手紙だけ。その手紙がこのアルバムの曲になっているのです。
