Tuomas Holopainen comments: “We wanted to present our upcoming album`s opening track "Shudder Before The Beautiful" for everyone to listen to before the album`s release in cooperation with the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat. Bringing together the most trustworthy Finnish media with a song about universal awe was a match made in heaven in its uniqueness. The core of "Shudder Before The Beautiful" lies in moments such as gazing at The Milky Way on a cold winter`s night, seeing a photo of our Planet Earth, "a pale blue dot" taken by Voyager 1 as a tiny oasis in the unfathomable vastness of space, or when listening to music which momentarily takes away all woe and time.
And sharing those moments with people you love.”

The track list for »Endless Forms Most Beautiful« reads as follows:

01. Shudder Before The Beautiful
02. Weak Fantasy
03. Élan
04. Yours Is An Empty Hope
05. Our Decades In the Sun
