Ex-NIGHTWISH Singer TARJA TURUNEN: 'My Winter Storm' Artwork Revealed

The cover artwork for former NIGHTWISH frontwoman Tarja Turunen's upcoming solo album, "My Winter Storm", has been posted online at this location.

Due in Europe on November 19 (November 16 in Germany) via Universal Music, "My Winter Storm" was produced by Daniel Presley (FAITH NO MORE, JEWEL, THE BREEDERS), who has been joined in the studio by a truly stellar line-up of musicians: Doug Wimbish on bass (LIVING COLOUR, ANNIE LENNOX, JOE SATRIANI, JEFF BECK, MADONNA, ROLLING STONES), Alex Scholpp on electric guitars (FARMER BOYS) and Earl Harvin on drums (SEAL, PET SHOP BOYS, AIR), a player personally selected by Tarja after she saw him stealing the show at a SEAL concert. Keyboards and programming, meanwhile, are being provided by Torsten Stenzel, whose previous credits include NELLY FURTADO, MOBY, TINA TURNER, VANESSA MAE and more.

Tarja Turunen's video for the song "I Walk Alone", can be viewed below. The clip was shot in Berlin, Germany with director Jörn Heitmann, who previously worked with NIGHTWISH on the "Sleeping Sun" clip in 2005. The "I Walk Alone" single will be released on October 29 (October 26 in Germany) via Universal Music.

An audio interview with Tarja Turunen has been posted on Metalhead.ro. Tarja reveals that NIGHTWISH is still an important part of her life and something she feels difficult to leave behind. She also talks about the things that inspire her, the concept of her new solo album, and how she feels about NIGHTWISH and other symphonic metal bands.

"I was with NIGHTWISH for such a long time that I still feel the band as a part of myself," she says. "I was one of the most important elements in NIGHTWISH for nine years, and the band was an essential part of myself too."
