NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon is currently collaborating with Martinus "Martijn" Spierenburg (WITHIN TEMPTATION) and Fredrik Bergh (BLOODBOUND, STREET TALK) on a brand new project. She says, "I have recorded one song that is with Martijn for mixing at the moment and I look forward to hearing it soon. The project album is also being discussed with record labels at the moment and as soon as we know more I promise to tell you who else will be involved, etc."

Olzon scrapped her previously announced plans to release a solo album after she became pregnant last fall with her second child (and first with her current boyfriend, bassist Johan Husgafvel of the Swedish metal band PAIN). Olzon also has an eight-year-old son, Seth, with her now-ex-husband.

Olzon and MUSTASCH performed a medley of five songs which were nominated in the "Song Of The Year" category during the January 19, 2010 "P3 Guld" (Swedish radio's annual music awards) live awards ceremony broadcast from the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden. The singer also appeared on August 13, 2009 with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra at a special concert in Stockholm, Sweden as part of the Stockholms Kulturfestival (Stockholm's Culture Festival).
