Tarja Turunen releases track-by-track video series for The Brightest Void
Former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen breaks down her recently released 'prequel' album in lead-up to launch of The Shadow Self in August
Tarja Turunen has unveiled a track-by-track breakdown series for her latest album The Brightest Void.
In one clip she talks about working with her friend Michael Monroe, former vocalist of Hanoi Rocks, on track Your Heaven And Your Hell.
Tarja says: "He was very up for it – if he loves something he just goes for it. It was incredible, because we talked about the idea of the lyrics and the theme of the song together, and he appeared the next morning with the full lyrics done like, 'Hey, I wrote the lyrics.'
"It was fantastic. He is a super-fast and intelligent person, and I really liked how heavy it turned out to be. Hopefully, I can perform the song with him one day. We can figure it out."
Tarja has a number of headline shows and festival appearances scheduled over the coming months.
