According to the label, “kicking off with the long awaited new studio rock album, the following months will entail many musical areas of interest of the versatile and talented Finnish artist, including exciting new studio material as well as live audio and video recordings. Although rock will remain Tarja’s main musical field in the months to come, earMUSIC and the artist are also planning to release further high quality productions in diverse musical genres. The spectacular Beauty and The Beat tour will be filmed this year, and the success of the album Harus will be followed by the first-ever classical studio album by Tarja Turunen.”

The new Tarja album will be mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) and the details about the first single and its video and the extensive worldwide tour will be revealed soon.

In her last studio update, Tarja revealed: “In few days I am going to record the final vocals for the last song on the album. It will be a hard ending for the vocal recordings, since the song has several choirs and even some sort of ethnic touch, so I will have to sweat.”
