The second Single of the seventh full-length album by the legendary Finnish Symphonic Power Metal band.
The gentle track is written by guitar player and vocalist Marco Hietala. It was released on March 2, 2012. In addition, the single includes the unreleased song "The Heart Asks Pleasure First", a cover of the song with the same name from the the triple Oscar-winning movie "The Piano" to which Nightwish added vocals, originally scored by Michael Nyman. Tuomas calls it "one one the most beautiful soundtracks ever written". He adds: "We wanted to do our own version of this instrumental theme, adding the whole band`s effort, the orchestra & choir, and lyrics into the song, capturing the original haunting and melancholic atmosphere in NIGHTWISH style". The song was originally recorded during the "Dark Passion Play" sessions to be released as a bonus track, but Nyman did not provide permission for the song to be released in time for album's release.
In March 2012, Nuclear Blast held a contest for fans to create their own music video for "The Crow, the Owl and the Dove". The record label provided a MP3 download of the radio edit of the song for entrants to use in entries. The first-place winner received a "Golden Ticket", allowing access to any show on the Imaginaerum World Tour, a special award, and a band meet-and-greet. The second and third-place winners received two tickets to a Nightwish concert near them (including a meet-and-greet for the second-place winner), as well as a copy of the Limited Tour Edition of "Imaginaerum". Winning videos were uploaded to the Nuclear Blast and Nightwish YouTube channels. The contest ended April 10, 2012, and winners were selected by members of the band, label, and management, while taking YouTube "likes" and views into account.
The single debuted at number one in the Finnish Singles Chart.
