NIGHTWISH: Song that will never be released was heard in Hartwall Arena; audio available

NIGHTWISH ended their massive Dark Passion Play World-tour on saturday evening at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, Finland. As the show ended and the band bowed to the audience, a song "The Heart Asks Pleasure First" by Michael Nyman was played in the background. The song was recorded by Nightwish but it will never be released on any album.

"We didn't get the permit from the original composer to release the song cause he didn't like our version of it.", Tuomas Holopainen said on an interview he gave to

The song was one of the first songs the band recorded after Anette Olzon joined Nightwish.

Nightwish will take a long break now and their new album will be released sometime during 2011. During this time each member of Nightwish will work on their own projects. According to Anette Olzon she will release a soloalbum at some point during the break.
