Tuomas Holopainen commented: “The long awaited Nightwish music video "Élan"is finally here. Inspired by the untold stories of abandoned places around Finland, the video was nearly a year in the making and features some of the most loved Finnish actors and actresses. And also the legendary Nightwish symbol, a snowy owl (Bubo Scandiaca in Latin) called "Urho" ("Braveheart").“
The release is also celebrated with the video clip for "Élan." It was shot in Finland at various locations between September and November 2014, directed by Ville Lipiäinen.
