Ville Valo releases debut solo album ‘Neon Noir,’ shares video for title track

Finnish musician and former HIM vocalist Ville Valo released a brand new album under his new moniker VV. The album is called ‘Neon Noar,’ and it’s out via Spinefarm Records.

Ville Valo comments: “I firmly believe Neon Noir sprinkles some much-missed glitter all over modern day doom and gloom. It’s 12 lessons in reckless abandon without spilling the red.”

Earlier, shared Valo about the new project: “Artistically speaking, the main difference between HIM and VV is the extra line in the Heartagram, but what an exquisite line it is! It’s the Mamas and the Papas dressed up as Metallica on their way to a Halloween bash at Studio 54, and now who wouldn’t want to witness that?”
