Esa Holopainen comments: “’Storm’ is the first preview of the Silver Lake album by Esa Holopainen. I hope you like it as much as I do. Check out Owe Lingvall’s amazing video. It was filmed in the Canary Islands where Håkan and Owe spent a lot of time finding the perfect locations. ‘Storm’ is a catchy and emotional song that Håkan has done an amazing job on. I am truly honored to have him on board and this piece proves that he is still one of the best singers.”
