Following the sensational success of Act I, the first ever live solo offering from legendary Finnish songstress/former Nightwish soprano, TARJA TURUNEN, Armoury Records, in conjunction with earMUSIC, is delighted to announce the renewal of their collaboration for an exciting set of new releases spanning the next few years.
Set to commence with the long-awaited new studio rock album, the following months will entail many musical adventures for the versatile and talented artist, including the spectacular Beauty And The Beat 2013 tour, scheduled to be filmed later this year, and a first-ever all-classical studio offering which follows the success of her award-winning Harus – Live At Sibelius Hall release.
In addition, TARJA fans will be pleased to know that the follow-up to 2010’s What Lies Beneath will hit stores later this Summer. The as-yet-untitled album, mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2), is set to be the iconic vocalist’s next milestone for symphonic heavy rock thanks to a stellar lineup and a state-of-the-art production. Further details including a new single, video and extensive worldwide tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
Act I topped charts throughout Europe, with a sensational no. 5 in Germany’s General Charts (an unusual result for a live album). The video version held steady for over two months at the peak of the Finnish music video charts.
