Eluveitie, the Swiss folk band for excellence released today a new song from their latest work ‘Origins’. This new song ‘The Call Of The Mountains’ is a tribute to the high mountains and the intricate language system that works in there, so, this song in particular is sang in English, obviously, but also in the four Swiss national languages.
‘Origins’ comes as the sixth studio album of Eluveitie which was recorded at the New Sound Studios with Tommy Vetterli. After the success of ‘Helvetios’, Eluveitie wanted to show its love for their homeland. Regarding ‘The Call Of The Mountain’ Eluveitie said:
[blockquote cite=”Eluveitie”]This one’s long overdue. Another ‘Origins’ song you say? Well, yes indeed. Finally, a song about our beautiful mountains? That, too. But also an idea we’ve considered for a number of years now: a song released not just in English and/or Gaulish, but in all four of Switzerland’s beautiful national languages! So we present to you: ‘The Call Of The Mountains’! A song about the long searched for destination at the end of the epic journey of the Celts, who were to become the Helvetians – a song about our mystical and unparalleled alps. Besides the English album version, you will find the full song in Swiss German, French, Italian and of course Romansh both on Nuclear Blast’s mailorder edition and on iTunes, where you will of course be able to get them separately, too. We can’t wait to hear how you like it![/blockquote]
‘The Call Of The Mountains’ will release first its English version on July 25th, and the full version in Swiss German, French, Italian and Romansh will be available in the mailorder-edition of ‘Origins’ via Nuclear Blast Records and iTunes.
