Ex-NIGHTWISH vocalist TARJA TURUNEN has uploaded her new video, for the track ’500 Letters’, from her Colours In The Dark album.
Shot in Tigre, near Buenos Aires, Argentina by Florian Kaltenbach who also directed the video for ‘Victim Of Ritual’, ‘500 Letters’ is a new landmark in Tarja’s video clips collection to date. For the first time in Tarja’s history, the singer herself is the main character in the story line. No wonder, is ‘500 Letters’ in many ways Tarja’s most private song ever. With its very personal song writing and delicate topic, it offers a great emotional insight into the artist herself. Touching the sensitive topic “stalkers”, Tarja allows her fans a closer look into her thoughts. ‘500 Letters’ is open to interpretation – being a mix of reality and fiction. The heavy, yet highly melodic song gets stuck in your mind after the first listen with its haunting melody and touching, exceptional vocals. Despite its very catchy key note, the bombastic sound still is full of darkness and dramatic structure and takes Tarja’s song writing one step further.
Tarja released Colours In The Dark on August 23rd in Europe, and on August 27th in North America, via earMUSIC. Mixed and mastered by Tim Palmer in Austin, Texas (PEARL JAM, U2) in Austin, Texas, the songs on Colours In The Dark do not shy away from taking a risk and surprising musical turns, introducing new sounds and new musical atmospheres. Still, they maintain a heaviness that will surely bring a big smile to the hardest of rockers. With its grand orchestra and choir arrangements, Tarja’s next milestone emphasises once again the impressive vocal range of the Finnish artist and shows her artistic growth.
