Video footage of former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen performing a new song, "Witch-Hunt", on October 30 in Tampere, Finland at Tampere Hall with the Tampere Filharmonics (led by Benjamin Vary) can be viewed below.

Tarja performed four songs in total during this special Halloween concert: "Witch-Hunt" and "In For A Kill" (world premiere), along with "Oasis" and "I Walk Alone" from her debut solo album, "My Winter Storm".

Turunen recently recorded three songs for a Finnish Christmas album, produced by Olli Ahvenlahti. According to Turunen, this is "a charity project for missionary workers in Finland and it is going to be released in the beginning of November in Finland."

Regarding the title of her forthcoming CD ("What Lies Beneath"), Turunen recently said, "With [2007's] 'My Winter Storm', I chose the name of the album in the early stages and that helped me to create the concept for the album. With the new album, I decided to do it the same way, so I searched for an inspiring title and all the songs are one way or another related to it."
