Ville Valo’s new solo project VV has unveiled a brand-new single, Echolocate Your Love.

Taken from next year’s debut solo record Neon Noir, the former HIM frontman’s new track is brilliantly described by the musician as “a teary mascara marathon between Robert Smith and Ozzy, with a dash of hope”.

“It’s a sonic step-by-step guide on how to survive, and perhaps even enjoy, the realm of VV with its abundance of things that go bump in the night,” he explains.
