There are no reviews for The Islander yet. You can write one.

The video for "The Islander" was shot in the autumn of 2007 in Rovaniemi, Finland and was directed by Stobe Harju.

Additionally, the single will also include the videos for "The Islander" and "Bye Bye Beautiful".

"Escapist" is widely mistitled as "The Escapist".

The tracklist on a lot of other versions is:
1. The Islander (Radio Edit) (03:57)
2. The Islander (Album Version) (04:58)
3. Escapist (Instrumental Version) (04:59)
4. Meadows Of Heaven (Orchestral version) (07:10)

The 'normal version' or 'album version' of "The Islander" is, in fact, slightly different from the actual album version. The 'stormy samples' in the intro and outro of the song are slightly different. The 'stormy' outro is about 5 seconds longer on the album aswell.
