Original news, published on 08.08.2010

Finnish soprano singer Tarja Turunen has premiered her new video for the song "I Feel Immortal" online. You can watch the new "I Feel Immortal" video below or at this location.

The video was shot in Iceland. In a statement on her website, Tarja wrote: "...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."

The single I Feel Immortal wil be exclusively released in Germany, Switzerland & Austria on 27th of August, and will also feature on Tarja's new album What Lies Beneath, to be released early September.





UPDATE

"Until My Last Breath", another new video from Tarja Turunen, can be viewed at this location.

The song is the first international single from her sophomore effort, What Lies Beneath, which is now being released on September 14, 2010 in the US via The End Records.

I surprised myself by liking "I Feel Immortal", but found it quite funny how they both start in the same way and both videos feature Tarja walking down beaches looking really reflective. "Until My Last Breath" is boring, bog-standard gothic rock/ metal a'la Flowing Tears, Lacuna Coil etc.

While I was just a hair shy of heartbroken when Nightwish fired Tarja, I listen to these songs and realize why the made their decision. The songwriting and lackluster musicianship in these two songs and the album before them do nothing to remind me why I loved her as a part of Nightwish. Yes, her voice is beautiful. But it falls far too short in masking the over all blandness of the final product.

I know this all seems obscenely negative and fully respect that there are many people who will not agree with me. To each his own, more power to us all. But I can not help but feel that she should have shown proper respect to Tuomas Holopainen and crew and realized that without them, nobody would have a clue who she was. Unfortunately, with each passing song I am slowly starting to forget.

Of course, Annette still has to follow up the brilliance of Dark Passion Play.

I will still be checking this album out in full upon release. I do hope that at least some of the songs will help to reignite the fire that I felt listening to Tarja's voice. I do have exceptionally high hopes for the track featuring Joe Satriani. Here's hoping Satch and my fellow Finn can make some magic happen.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Apart from the last paragraph, I've heard enough already.

....and people complain that Nightwish has gone pop....


but...but...this is Tarja...the most talented singer in the world

I know. She is so talented I heard that she was the first choice to replace Bon Scott even though she hadn't been born. Iron Maiden, Judas Priest wouldn't have had to call back their most famous frontmen as she could have done both jobs whilst writing hate mail to Annette Olson, ending world poverty and saving the trapped Chillian miners through song.
your comment just made my morning

Thats what I'm here to do.

I still can't believe the fanboyism on other Nightwish threads and Youtube. Ellrohir's sarcasm made me smile.

I find the idea of shooting two videos at similar/nearly the same places a bit weird but otherwise, I like the second clip, too. Musically speaking though, I prefer "I Feel Immortal". Anyways, both songs are catchy.

One point - the simple fact of her songs being "different than Nightwish" doesnt automatically mean it is good as well... yes, her stuff is different from NW, but NOT different from a lot of mainstream rock/metal, nothing exceptional... her stuff is more of "neat but forgettable", it is nice to listen to, but ultimately I prefer a lot of better things... I call this a waste of talent... Winter Storm wasnt bad, but forgettable as well... this one sounds a pinch better from the songs, but still, neat but forgettable... she is one of my fav female singers, so the more it is sad for me to see her wasting her talent like this, she needs a GOOD SONGWRITER!!!

Not bad at all, but it sounds like she's saying "i feel immoral"


Actually, she's using the american pronounciation, the "t" is softer.

Some of her music really reminds me of Angels Fall First. I really hope that she goes back to her roots and release an entire album like that.

Yeah, when I first heard of the song, the title (originally just given as "Immortal") immediately made me think of Evanescence.

Uhh, newsflash: Tarja just got 33. So yeah, seems she actually looks younger than that if you estimate her as being 30 of age. omg

But I suppose you're teenagers, so 30 is like zomgshesasoldasmymom!!!1 for you.


i assume youre aiming that at my comment?

i was joking.... cause 30 ISNT old

the internet is a horrible vessel for sarcasm

Yeah, the problem is that you can never know if a retarded comment is sarcastic or really serious. Sad reflection on the state of teh internets.

So no, those singles aren't masterpieces that redefine music, but I've never expected that (I didn't care for UMLB, either), you'd be out of your mind to approach them like that. What's much more pathetic, though, is the Holopainen fanboys who go "OMG Tarja's nothing without Tuomas' songwriting and that shit isnt tr00 methulz, it suxx!1!!1one", failing to realise how much his ZOMG epic songwriting has itself gone down the gutter ever since Oceanborn. Tarja at least doesn't claim to make metal, but NW still refuse to admit their music is barely different from Indica by now. If I want great, artistically relevant symphonic metal, I sure won't listen to NW.
