NIGHTWISH Vocalist To Release Solo Single

NIGHTWISH frontwoman Tarja Turunen recently spent time at Finnvox studios in Helsinki, Finland with producer Esa Nieminen recording two traditional Finnish Christmas songs ("En Etsi Valtaa, Loistoa" and "Kun Joulu On") for her first-ever solo CD single, due in Finland in December.

In other news, Tarja recently recorded guest vocals for German "Star Search" winner Martin Kesici's song "Leaving You for Me", which is due to appear on Kesici's second album. The song will be released as the CD's second single in early 2005, featuring a different mix different from the album version. A video clip for the song — featuring Tarja — was recently shot in Finland.

Also on the Turunen-related front, Argentine music TV channel CM (Canal de la Musica) will broadcast an interview with Tarja and the rest of the Noche Escandinava members, and will air footage from the Buenos Aires Noche Escandinava concert as well as additional video material from the opera's last South American and Romanian tour, on October 2 beginning at 9:00 p.m. The broadcast can be accessed online at
