The album will be released by Edel in Germany and through other partners, but it won’t released in the UK initially (that decision will come down to Mercury/Universal).
Following the sensational success of “ACT I”, earMUSIC and Tarja are delighted to announce the renewal of their collaboration for an exciting set of new releases spanning over the next few years.
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.
Tarja‘s fans will be happy to know that the follow-up to 2010′s studio album “What Lies Beneath” will hit the stores between August and September 2013.
The album, mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) is set to be Tarja’s next milestone for symphonic heavy rock thanks to a stellar line-up and a state of the art production.
Details about the first single and its video and the extensive worldwide tour will be revealed soon.
“ACT I” – the first rock release by Tarja on earMUSIC charted Top 10 all over Europe as well as almost all over the world, with a sensational no. 5 in Germany’s General Charts (a unique result for a live album). The video version even remained for over two months at the peak of the Finnish music video charts.
