Tarja Soile Susanna Turunen Cabuli, or simply Tarja, possesses one of the most unique voices in all of music. You obviously know her for the amazing work she did with NIGHTWISH, but she has clearly moved passed the shadow of the band that made a big mistake when they decided to fire her via a letter.
Tarja has announced that she will be working once again with Dirk Rudolph on the artwork for her new solo album. As she told us during a recent interview (listen below), the album will be out this Summer via earMUSIC.
"You can expect, as before, beautiful photos, maybe more shocking this time". The record was mixed in Austin, Texas with producer Tim Palmer (PEARL JAM, U2). Here are some of the song titles:
- "Lucid Dreamer"
- "500 Letters"
- "Never Enough"
A lyric video for the song "Never Enough" was recently filmed in Zlin, Czech Republic and will make its online debut soon. Tarja says: "I didn't want to make a traditional, boring lyric video for the song, so I am going to appear on the video not just the lyrics of the song…. This video is not what we can call the official first music video from my new album, but just an improved version of a lyric video. The filming took only couple hours with Martin, who worked also on directing my first solo live rock DVD, 'Act I'".
