He's also released a lyric video for The Last Sled. The song title was inspired by Last Sled To Dawson, one of the first Scrooge McDuck stories Holopainen read as a child.
He says: "There was a much deeper level hidden between the stories and the gags – this is a book about life itself. The unfathomable privilege; the things that truly matter. It's about the immense beauty of the world and its possibilities seen through the eyes of a relentless, honest and complex character.
"It's about love, family, gain, loss, darkness and rebirth – and on top of that it's just your good old-fashioned storytelling fun."
Music Inspired By The Life And Times Of Scrooge, with cover art by creator Don Rosa, is on sale now.
