Morten Veland:

“I’m proud and honoured to welcome Nicoletta Rosellini from Alterium and Walk in Darkness as my special guest for ‘The Covid Aftermath Sessions’. The song that we have done together is called ‘A Thousand Light-years unfold’. It’s a groovy mid tempo metal song with some modern and symphonic elements, and it’s a perfect fit for Nicoletta’s beautiful voice. I met Nicoletta back in 2019 when Sirenia and Kalidia both performed at the Brainstorm Festival in the Netherlands, so I have been following her projects since then. So I am very happy that we finally got to do this collaboration together and I think that the result turned out so cool, Nicoletta did a fantastic performance on this track!I feel truly privileged and thankful to have Nicoletta on board this project, and we are really looking forward to sharing this song with you all. The song will be available on all digital platforms on the 26th of April 2024”.

Nicoletta Rosellini:

“As someone who has listened to Morten and Sirenia’s music for years (I still remember when I stumbled upon their album ‘The 13th Floor’ during my highschool days), it’s an absolute honor to now have the opportunity to collaborate on the Mortemia song “A Thousand Light-Years Unfold”. When I heard the demo of the track for the first time, I already knew it was a perfect fit for my voice – and so it was! I hope you all will enjoy it as much as I do!”
