about

For Farewell Of Nostalgia is Vision Eternel's newest concept EP. It is a narrative of how emotionally devastating falling in love too fast can be and the aftermath of a heartbreak. Sometimes, looking for tender affection can be detrimental; this tale of infatuation, wounding absence, intimacy, melancholia and never-ending nostalgia intends to make the listener feel every bit of that.

Alexander Julien began composing and recording demos for the release in 2017. For Farewell Of Nostalgia was first recorded over seven months from April to October 2018. Unsatisfied with these original recordings, Julien put the release aside for a year, until he ultimately decided to re-record it, entirely from scratch, over the span of two months between October and November 2019.

For Farewell Of Nostalgia was mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering in January 2020 and the cover artwork was illustrated by Michael Koelsch at Koelsch Studios in April 2020. The EP features additional painting and photography by Rain Frances at Rain Frances Art.

Julien also wrote a short story to accompany the release (in place of lyrics in the booklet), which recounts the events that influenced this concept EP. The short story is only available in the physical editions.
