This is undoubtedly one of the most interesting current Finnish collaborations: Ville Valo (internationally known as the lead singer of HIM) is joining forces with legendary Finnish band Agents. This project has been eagerly anticipated ever since Valo and Agents first performed Rauli “Badding” Somerjoki’s songs at Agents’ TV show Laulava sydän back in 1999. They’re about to release an album of Somerjoki’s songs in February 2019 and the first song is already out – “Orpolapsi kiurun” instantly became a major hit. The origin of the song is quite interesting. Agents guitarist Esa Pulliainen found it on a demo tape Somerjoki (1947-1987) had recorded some song ideas. More of these rare treats can be heard on the forthcoming album.
