Tarja - Announces New Christmas Album


This year, Tarja is bringing the festive season early with the release of her brand new Christmas album, From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas) on November 17th via earMUSIC. The album includes 11 Christmas classics, blending Tarja's classically trained voice with darker gothic influences.

Utilizing the sound of a grand orchestra, the Finnish singer puts a spin on traditional songs like "O Tannenbaum", "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" and "Feliz Navidad", reminding the listener of a dark movie score. Besides covering classic carols, From Spirits And Ghosts also features a 12th track, the brand new original "Together". This song is aligned with the dark sound of the album and embodies the theme of ghosts and mysticism throughout.




Says Tarja: "Producing a dark Christmas album in the middle of the summer is a very interesting process, especially if you are doing it by the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Significantly different from the snowy Christmas that I am used to in my home country Finland. Another proof that the darkness comes from deep within. On this album, I explored the other side of Christmas. The Christmas of the lonely people and the missing ones. The Christmas for those that do not find joy in the blinking lights and the jingle bells. "

The album is produced by Tarja, the American Emmy Award winning film score composer Jim Dooley and British producer Tim Palmer, known for his work with Pearl Jam, U2, David Bowie, Lang Lang and The Cure among others, who also mixed the album at 62' Studio in Texas. The album was mastered at Sterling Sound in NY City.

Mort.
Tarja without Nightwish is nothing! Her solo career is terrible. I mean, her albums ratings and her music in general totally sucks! She doesn't even care if the music will be liked by the audience, but she cares to raise her net worth more and more...this is pitiful.

To be honest, she has been hyping the album quite a bit. Expect the unexpected she wrote. Well, after announcing a Christmas album I feel disappointed. She has done a Christmas album before, so it's definitely not unexpected.

Tarja seems to release a lot of stuff but nothing really stands out.

I like some stuff but generally speaking, it's not very consistent.

To her defense, she's focusing on the finnish middle-age mainstream market
