Greece's Rock Overdose recently conducted an interview with former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
Turunen's new project, HARUS, has just released a CD/DVD/Blu-ray, entitled "In Concert - Live At Sibelius Hall".
The HARUS live album/DVD was made available worldwide by earMUSIC in collaboration with Edel's classic music division Berlin Classics. This joint venture from two music labels apparently far away from each other would probably sound bizarre at first sight (a label operating in alternative and metal music with one representing traditional classical music artists). The reason lies beneath the many sides of Tarja Turunen's music.
The first output of HARUS features traditional and emotional music from Finland presented together with more international repertoire.
Tarja's sophomore solo album, "What Lies Beneath", sold around 1,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 24 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"What Lies Beneath" was released in North America on September 14, 2010 via The End Records.
