Welcoming one and all to the wonderful world of Moominvalley, Filmkompaniet and Animoon, in association with SDI Media, Universal Music and Finland's Ministry for Foreign Affairs will today attempt to break a Guinness World Record with the simultaneous YouTube release of the music videos for Bring the Snow, sung in 23 different languages. The launch marks the official announcement of an anticipated December 2017 release for the feature film, Moomins at Christmas.
Performed by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, Bring the Snow, is written by Finnish musician and performer Paula Vesala, with music by Jori Sjöroos and orchestral arrangement by Jussi Vahvaselkä.
Each international version of the song features lead vocals by different recording artists from around the world (full breakdown follows below). The song will also be used as the official Christmas Greeting of the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, as part of the Centenary Anniversary celebrations of Finland's independence in 2017.
All 23 music videos will be available to view online from the 2nd December, and the first two audio recordings of the song – in Finnish and Swedish - will be released on the same day. All other versions will be released through December. Swedish artist Krista Siegfrids commented "I watched the Moomins as a child and I love all of the characters, so it has been an honour to sing the title song of the film for all Swedish speaking audiences".
