TARJA TURUNEN has been in Austin, Texas, working her forthcoming new album, slated to be released in August / September. Tarja checks in with the following update:

“The long process is soon getting to its end. Or if you prefer, to the beginning. Now the mix is done, next week the album will be mastered and ready for production. Once again I am working with Dirk Rudolph on the album artwork and he will nail it soon. You can expect, as before, beautiful photos, maybe more shocking this time ;)

This album took me to several places in the last 2 years, but nothing compared to where it will take us for promotion and touring. And a new song title: ‘Lucid Dreamer’.”


Tarja has now announced ‘Lucid Dreamer’, ‘Neverlight’, ’500 Letters’ and ‘Never Enough’ as the first song titles from her new album, the name of which will be made known in May. Recently Tarja filmed a lyric video for ‘Never Enough, which is expected to premiere soon.
