Blackmore’s Night released their fourth single, “Second Element”, from their recent album “Nature’s Light” as a video in YouTube.
According to Ritchie the album was inspired by the atmosphere of renaissance fairs. “I heard something that was a similar kind of melody, so I took that melody and gave it to Candice,” he describes the inception of the song. “I said, ‘This represents people going to a faire, a very ceremonial thing, with the King and Queen coming through.’ and it needed to have the bombastic pageantry of celebration. A regal announcement that royalty was coming to town.”
