Be Still Our Beating Heartagram HIM Frontman Ville Valo Is Back With 'Loveletting'

  • Be Still Our Beating Heartagram HIM Frontman Ville Valo Is Back With 'Loveletting'
    POSTED 8 Apr 2022

    VILLE VALO

    Be still our beating heartagrams! One of the era's biggest metal heartthrobs, Ville Valo of HIM is back and he's brought the haunting new single Loveletting by his new project VV and news of a VV album to come in 2023! 

    Listen to Loveletting now. 

    Loveletting may be labelled a VV song but to our ears, it sounds every bit like a HIM track with Valo's haunting croon telling a story of doomed love. Ever the colourful creative,  Valo describes the upcoming VV album Neon Noir as 

    "Mamas and the Papas dressed up as Metallica on their way to a Halloween bash at the Studio 54"

    If Loveletting is anything to judge it by, Valo is pretty bang on with the description. 

    Speaking about the inspiration for VV Valo reveals while he had fun saying goodbye to HIM with fans around the world, he missed performing and creating too much not to dive back in eventually. 

    "As fun as the funeral rites for HIM were, it took me more than a few moons to lick my wounds in the shadow of the Heartagram and come up with an excuse to strum and hum again, eventually, I decided to put a leash on my beloved black dog and we started howling together instead of barking at each other. That's how 'Loveletting' was born."

    Valo isn't wasting any time getting back to performing live either, with a full US tour for VV announced alongside the release of Loveletting.  Now excuse us while we go into a YouTube rabbit hole watching all of our favourite HIM songs from Valo's past.
