Despite her light and airy character, the music of Finnish songstress/former Nightwish soprano, TARJA has always been shrouded “in black” – the color of heavy rock, mystery and elegance. With her latest studio recording, fans will find that same darkness highlighted by an array of new emotions, multihued landscapes and musical atmospheres.
TARJA‘s latest milestone emphasizes once again her impressive vocal range and continued artistic growth. Titled Colours In The Dark, the ten-track offering was mixed and mastered by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) in Austin, Texas and delivers over an hour of music which includes grandiose orchestra and choir arrangements. Colours In The Dark follows the charting successes of 2007’s My Winterstorm and 2010’s What Lies Beneath.
Colours In The Dark will be released in North America via Eagle Rock imprint Armoury Records on August 27, 2013.
