TARJA - "The Songs I Wrote So Far Are Very Different In Spirit"
Friday, 05 August 2011 16:02
0011_tarja_studioSinger TARJA TURUNEN (ex-NIGHTWISH) has issued the following update:

"It’s been a great summer so far. I have been able to be creative besides the shows that we are doing and that make me happy. Some days ago I met Erik (Nyholm, songwriter/producer) in Finland and we wrote a couple of very nice songs together. You know Erik already from the songs 'Rivers Of Lust' and 'Sing For Me'. Now when we sat down together, very different kind of songs were born unexpectedly and that was really cool.studio1

The songs I wrote so far are very different in spirit: about eagles, killers, dreams, love, journeys, colours, and darkness. I already sense that the new album will have a more positive vibe than the previous ones and it’ll rock!!!!!

Until yesterday I was in Sweden where I spent few days having fun and writing songs with (songwriters/producers) Mattias (Lindblom) and Anders (Wollbeck), writers of 'I Walk Alone' and 'In For A Kill'.

studio2We spent the most incredible time in the archipelago of Stockholm and I realized again how important it truly is to have an inspiring environment around you when you write songs.

The water was too cold for a swim though… but we had the sun with us all the time! And when the sun went down the ghost stories begun…

With love, Tarja."
