According to Domino Records, Final Fantasy‘s third album Heartland is “a song cycle of Contemporary Fiction” and a “unique modern musical statement” that comprises “twelve concise songs informed by the traditions of pop, which are based on one long narrative concept, and played by an orchestra.” What that basically means is it’s a red-blooded concept album about a super hot religious zealot named Lewis who lives a homoerotic fantasy land called Spectrum over which Final Fantasy’s Owen Pallett presides as God. Things really heat up when Lewis takes off his shirt during the song “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt”.
We haven’t heard Heartland in its entirety yet so we don’t know how the story ends, but as a prelude to the album’s January 2010 release, Final Fantasy has made the song “Lewis Takes Action” available for free download. You can listen to it below and then grab it via Domino’s website.
