Finnish folk metal superstars KORPIKLAANI are happy to unleash ‘Aita‘, the second single from their upcoming new studio album, Rankarumpu, which is due to be released on April 5th 2024. 

Aita‘ keeps up the full-speed ahead approach from the previous single, ‘Saunaan‘. The dizzying pace, a catchy chorus and a masterful violin/accordion duel make ‘Aita‘ an absolutely irresistible tune that bears all trademarks the Finns are universally known and loved for. Folk metal at its best!

Composer Olli Vänskä commented: 

‘Aita’ was actually composed as an instrumental track, or that was at least the intention. I sent a demo version to Jonne and when I was asking about it a week later, he told me “hell no!” and gave me the lyrics he wrote. And good lyrics, too! I’m very satisfied about the violin riff and how the folk interlude turned out as well. Lots of interesting stuff happening there!

Front man Jonne Järvelä added:

I got a very cool demo song from Olli to which I riffed with a guitar. Then a theme started to form in my head that I transformed into a song which was easy to write words to. 

In the lyrics, the main person meets an old familiar village man who has been on the road as a travelling man for a long time and returns to his home village. The man asks his friend all sorts of questions about what he has seen around the world, but the travelling man only answers vaguely, but with wise lessons.
