Nightwish Debut New Song “Ad Astra,” Announce Partnership With World Land Trust

  • Axl Rosenberg

Nightwish have announced a partnership with World Land Trust, “an international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats acre by acre.” A video for the band’s new track “Ad Astra” (Latin for “To the Stars”) includes a lot of information about WLT and the work they’re doing; what else this partnership will entail is currently unclear… but you can learn more about the World Land Trust, and make a donation if you’re so inclined, here.
