After a five-year hiatus, Finnish rock band THE RASMUS has just released a new single, “Paradise”. The track was recorded and mixed in Stockholm, and produced by the Swedish team The Family.

The official lyric video for “Paradise” can be seen below.

One of Finland’s biggest music exports, THE RASMUS has had a remarkable career to date, with the band’s big international breakthrough coming with their fifth album, when single “In The Shadows” became a worldwide hit.

In 2012, after releasing three more albums, and multiple world tours, members Lauri Ylönen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Eero Heinonen and Aki Hakala, took a break from their busy band schedule. During this period, singer Lauri Ylönen moved to Los Angeles, a change that resonates in many of the songs he has written since.

“Paradise is a relative thing,” Ylönen says of the single. “One man’s hell can be another man’s paradise.”
