Coinciding with the start of Tarja’s European tour in Hanover, Germany, this Friday, the queen of heavy rock surprises fans with the digital release of her new single “Demons In You”. On November 11th, the single will also be released as an exclusive, limited 1CD digipak collector’s item on earMUSIC.
“Demons In You” features Arch Enemy’s powerful lead vocalist Alissa White-Gluz and captures the darker, heavier atmosphere of Tarja’s recent studio album “The Shadow Self” perfectly. The duo’s performance of the song in front of 75.000 enthusiastic metal fans at this year’s Wacken Open Air was one of the festival’s spectacular highlights and most widely noted.
The two contrasting voices – on the one hand Tarja’s almost angelic clean soprano, on the other Alissa’s deep, dark growling – goad and challenge each other, giving the third single from Tarja a surprising edge. Combined with a catchy guitar riff, the bombastic drumming of Chad Smith and the crisp clear mix by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2), “Demons In You” is definitely a collaboration between two of the strongest females in heavy rock and metal.
The physical and digital single also includes two previously unreleased versions of the song: one with only Tarja on vocals, one with Alissa taking the lead.
1. Demons In You with Alissa White-Gluz
2. Demons In You Tarja Solo Version
3. Demons In You Alissa Lead Vox Version
