My new album is finally ready!
It took a while, but the result is so good that I think it was worth to sweat a bit
It has been the hardest and toughest project so far in my career, but very rewarding. I am very proud of all the people that were involved and took their time for my art. I am deeply grateful.
While I’ve been working on the album, we have already started performing summer shows and done few of them. The shows have been wonderful so far. We’ve been in Hungary, Belgium, Slovenia, Sweden, Estonia, Czech and Bulgaria. All of them very different events on their own.
We have met many friends in the shows and had lots of fun to play the new songs. Just wait to hear the rest of the album!
At the moment I am preparing myself for Wacken, Germany, which is happening next week.
There are only two shows still to come during this summer. But I will keep on travelling around the globe since the promotion for my new album has already started some time ago.
Here I am again recording piano parts for the last song we did for the album. That happened in the beginning of July.
It was only yesterday that this song was mastered and ready to be added to the rest. When I thought that the production for the album was finished and everything was ready, my record company in Germany wanted me to still work on this one: “I Feel Immortal”. That meant to get everybody back to studio again to record their parts, me to write new lyrics and music and to get my head back to where I had it during the whole spring…the production.
If this song turns out to be the success that my company believes it’s going to be, I am giving them all the credits.
For me it was hard to work in a song that was written already, but I decided to make it my own. I did my very best though to get the correct spirit for it, so in the end I could stand behind it; but I have to say, it was not easy.
I went to Iceland to shoot the video for “I Feel Immortal” and I know that it’s going to be probably the most beautiful video I have ever done in my career. The country is just unbelievably amazing with its stunning landscapes, so we managed to find incredible places for shootings.
I am very happy how the video turned out to be!!
In Bulgaria the city of Kavarna and it’s Mayor surprised me by organising a painting of me on a city building. It was nice to walk the streets and find similar paintings of Billy Idol, Klaus Meine, Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan… and me
It is a real honour!
My forthcoming single Until My Last Breath leaked to internet by accident few days ago. If you had the chance to listen to it, I hope you liked it. Please be so kind not to spread it all over that we can preserve it until the single will be released. I would really appreciate it very much. Thank you!
With love, Tarja
