Video for the first single, "Storytime", off NIGHTWISHs highly anticipated album "Imaginaerum".

"Storytime" is a song from the Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish's seventh studio album Imaginaerum, as well as the first single from the album. It was released on November 9, 2011, twenty days prior to the album, along with a music video.[2] The song premiered on Radio Rock, a Finnish radio station at 9.00 GMT +2 on November 7, 2011, two days before its commercial release.

Composer and band leader Tuomas Holopainen has said of Storytime that it "is a single that pretty well represents the whole album", and that it give a better picture of the album than "Eva" and "Amaranth" did as the first two singles to the 2007 album Dark Passion Play.

The music video to "Storytime",  directed by Ville LipiƤinen. features the radio version of the song, which is one and a half minute shorter than the album version. The video shows the band playing the song in the suits they wear in the Imaginaerum film, and with characters from the film briefly shown throughout the video. The video cuts between this movie-like scene and footage of the band dressing up, and behind-the-scene footage from the making of the film.

After having done "a few grand fantasy videos" like "Amaranth" and "The Islander", the production team wanted a more down-to-earth video, a making-of clip, which would be "pretty interesting to watch for the fans, even a couple of times."
