"No Bitter End", the new video from former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen, can be seen below. The song is taken from Tarja's forthcoming heavy rock album, "The Shadow Self", which will be released on August 5 via earMUSIC.
"The Shadow Self" is now available for pre-order in various formats, including standard CD and special edition CD+DVD.
While waiting for the release of "The Shadow Self", Tarja has yet another surprise for her fans: Turunen and earMUSIC have announced the release of the new album's prequel, "The Brightest Void". With over 50 minutes of new music, the extra album will sweeten the wait until August.
"The Brightest Void" will be released on June 3 via earMUSIC as a CD digipak, LP+download code and as a digital download.
"The Brightest Void" features not one but three incredible guest artists: fellow Finnish star Michael Monroe, icon of the glam rock scene and former frontman of inspiring band HANOI ROCKS; Chad Smith (who doesn't need any further introduction) and a new mix of WITHIN TEMPTATION's collaboration "Paradise (What About Us)", carried out with Tarja and world-renowned sound engineer and producer Tim Palmer. The prequel presents Tarja's new single, "No Bitter End", as the album opener and furthermore shakes you with an incredible cover of Sir Paul McCartney's overlooked gem "House Of Wax" and adds a new twist to Dame Shirley Bassey's James Bond theme "Goldfinger".
Tarja will perform songs from her upcoming album for the first time on festival dates this summer.
