Ville Valo is baaaah-ck! The HIM vocalist has just unveiled the first single from his new VV project, Loveletting, with an accompanying video that features an encounter with a sheep.

Earlier in the week, Ville revealed of how the single – which is presumably taken from next year's Neon Noir album – came about, "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."

He also explained of his new material: "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 the Studio 54, and now who wouldn't want to witness that?"
