TUOMAS HOLOPAINEN has released his debut Solo Single, ‘A Lifetime of Adventure’ from his highly anticipated upcoming album »Music Inspired By The Life and Times of Scrooge« today.
The vocals on „A Lifetime of Adventure“ are done by Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela. The guitars were played by Finnish Jazz musician Mikko Iivanainen, whose wife Johanna did the backing vocals.
The single is available on CD, colored vinyl and digital!

Tuomas has also released the video clip of the song few days ago.
The video was directed by Ville Lipiäinen and includes Mika Jussila‘s photos of Tuomas Holopainen and Don Rosa in the recording studio.

“The director, Ville Lipiäinen, and me went through some options of how to approach the video and soon agreed to shoot a sort of `making of` – clip of the song.
The idea of someone dressing up as Scrooge McDuck, and then filming him digging gold and riding an emu on an Australian desert felt just a tad corny.
Ville then followed us to London`s Angel Studios and later Petrax Studios to film some shots from the orchestra-, vocal-, guitar-, and piano sessions.
The hero of the video is Don Rosa himself. His presence and facial expressions always put a big smile on my face. I hope you`ll enjoy this adventure as much as we did!”
‘A Lifetime of Adventure’ is taken from the upcoming solo debut »Music Inspired By The Life and Times of Scrooge« which will be out on April 11, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.
The cover artwork on both the single and the album is by Don Rosa, the illustrator of Disney’s Duck characters.
