I am sitting listening to a great album....

...together with my morning coffee and the album is:

....Tarja´s new album "Colours in the dark". 

I can say that if you like Tarja, go and get this album on august 30th. It´s really her best album so far, even if I like them all, but she has definitely found her own style and this album is really great! I especially like the beautiful choirs and her voice is just perfect in all the songs and the guitar sound is great! 


Read more here about the album and release date and where to buy it:


ENJOY this saturday!!

I mus confess that I dont like Tarjas solo stuff. I loved her at Nightwish. But without the right songwriters her voice istn´t the same anymore

Anette Olzon said...

Micha; I actually think she is so good in her solo career;=) Good that we have different opinions though;=) Take care now!

Betty Blue said...

I´m waiting for the album release... Can´t wait to hear something new from Tarja. And I hope she´ll tour through Germany again, I would love to see her live again. She´s just the best singer I´ve ever heard of... Although I can´t deny that she was at her best when with NW. But luckily her beautiful voice is not bound to Nightwish, I am glad that she´s doing her solo stuff =)

Mads Bjerre Henriksen said...

I love the album, it's really cool!
What song(s) are your favourite(s), Anette? :) I really like the Peter Gabriel cover, Darkness, it's so cinematic, I can really see an entire movie in my mind when listening to that song, quite amazing!
Have a good day <3

vesna said...

i just can't get enough of her song never enough :)
i love her songs, even those i didn't at first, after hearing them live, they got stuck in my ear , like falling awake,i feel immortal, minor heaven...a lot of great songs on her albums, so i'm really looking forward to the new album as well. don't know if you heard of it but i think three years ago she had an acoustic part of the concert when came down to the audience and sang and played keys among the crowd, so special, to connect to people like that.
you have the same way to connect to people, and i'm also looking forward to your solo concerts. and one more thing, it's really wonderfull of you to publicly support another ex nightwish singer,so kudos to you :)

Alina V said...

I look forward the release! Yesterday I heard the samples from Colours In The Dark. I loved it! Cant wait to buy this album.
Have a good day!

It's nice you support Tarja ;). But honestly, I don't really like her solo stuff and the way her voice is changing. However, I think What Lies Beneath is better than My Winter Storm, so I hope she'll improve with every album ;). I don't know if I'll buy the new one, I'd rather listen to it on Spotify first ;).
Take care!

Anya said...

I haven´t been listening any of Tarjas solos since "I walk alone", but this album I´m looking forward to. I must say, that I´m really proud of you Anette, no many people wouldn´t write so beautifully considering on circumstances that you had when you became Nightwish new vocalist.

Grattis till nygifta! Du är så ursnyggt!

Hälsningar från Finland,
Anya

Ommadawn said...

hey :)
i got my own copy from company 2 days ago and I also love the album. What are ur favourite tracks? My favs are "Lucid Dreamer" and "Deliverance" :) but the "Darkness" is also a great interpretation :)

enjoy your day;
cheers from sunny Warsaw

Serena said...

That album looks AMAZING! Victim of Ritual is really good! :)

Christina said...

I listened to the first song released and it's pretty good! And I thought how nice it would be if you two made a song together..! Not that you have the same style but it could be a nice idea!

lynn0407escapistgirl said...

Totally agree with you, Anette. I'm so longing for Colours in the Dark!!! I think she has greatly developed since her first solo album and since WLB was way better than the previous album in my opinion I'm really excited about Colours in the Dark. Since the video clip of Never Enough was released I'm listening to it so often. :-)

Have fun listening to her new album and thx for your recommendation. :-)

Love,
Steffi <3

rainy said...

I totally agree with You :)
Heard some of the songs and all is perfect.
Can't wait to buy it :)

Elize 't Hart said...

Hello!

Something quite off-topic, but oh well.

I know you were a horse rider, so watch our Dutch dressage rider KILLING it! She was awesome!!

it's in Dutch, but yeah.

Okay,
on the topic:
I loved Victim Of Ritual, but I don't wanna listen to the rest YET, because i wanna wait until the album comes out. :D

Have a great day!

Elize 't Hart said...

Hey Anette!

It's been a while since I've commented, but oh well.

Something quite off-topic, but really good, in my opinion, one of the best dressage riders of Holland did AMAZING yesterday in Denmark.
Watch it, here: http://nos.nl/video/543553-cornelisse-scoort-81548-bij-ek.html

Now on the topic: I loved Victim Of Ritual, so i can't wait for the rest, I will just wait for the whole album to come out and not listen to the small samples. haha


Have an amazing day!

xoxo

Amelia Epica said...

I look forward to getting the album in the mail soon. I've had Never Enough and Victim of Ritual on repeat since she released them. Lately, she's been putting out really great material. I'm positive Colours In The Dark won't disappoint :-)

Fernanda Barone said...

Hey Anette! I'm happy to see you appreciate good music as well ^^ Tarja is really finding her path, the songs have a lot of atmosphere and stuff.. It's getting pretty nice! But I must say this album cover made a lot of people think the album would blow... Hugs!

ZozoEm said...

At least NW ends up producing some amazing female solo artists in the end... can't wait to pick up your first solo album too!

Poli said...

i just hope it's not illigal download

Gustavo Pereti said...

Eagerly waiting for my Tarja`s box! Anette good tip! Big hug and come back to Brazil some day, We love you!

Shirley Borges Mello said...

Anette ... I knew deep down that everything was in NIGHTWISH Marketing. I knew you were different. Not enjoyed his time at Nightwish because I knew you was not it. Not really followed his journey in the band because he knew his style was different. And you are proving to everyone that its authenticity can change many opinions. I'm a fan of Tarja 11 years ago. I follow her career every day since. And his words did believe that the media destroys an opinion true. Distorts the truth. Congratulations on your autencididade. I'm sure the best thing to do is you and Tarja stop this propaganda created by NIGHTWISH and I'm sure the best thing to do, one day you would be singing together to shut the mouths of many. Best wishes to you.

White_lily said...

Some songs for the album were written by Swedish musicians Anders Wollbeck and Mattias Lindblom from the band Vacuum. I wonder, Anette, are you acquainted with them?

Destined Tofail said...

compare any Nightwish album to another and you will notice a difference in both the song writing and the musical style. Some would say that Century child is the definitive Nightwish album, others say Once is, and there are those who say Imaginaerum is. I say each album is just a chapter in the book, as it is with Tarja's solo career. With each album she improves, as does her band. That fact is made evident when you compare My winter storm to What lies beneath. So I have no doubt that Colours in the dark will be an amazing experience.

Hancock Turunen said...

Yeah, you right Anette is her best album, it's magnific!!
PS: love you, and miss you!

Zonia said...

Hej Anette!

I have had difficulties to like Tarja's solo material. She truly has a great voice but her music.. I don't know why but I haven't liked it as much as I would have wanted. I hope this new album will be the one I will fall in love with ;)
I will definitely buy the album because Tarja is from Finland as do I, and I want to support finnish female vocalists :)

Tarja_Way said...

So kind of you to support Tarja. She definitely deserves it. I already preordered my copy, nd I know her album is great, and yes, full with colours :). Do you have a fav song?

Lucas Spessoto said...

What is your favorite song, Anette?

I love Medusa and Mystique Voyage! :D

Svanhildr said...

Tarja has been my first real huge vocal inspiration when I started to sing. Her timbre is so elegant and unique. I think as well that she was at her best during her Nightwish time, but I like her solo works too. I'm probably one of the few people who liked her more in My Winter Storm than in What Lies Beneath. For now I've heard only Victim of Ritual from the new album, and she really sounds at her best.

I wonder if you have ever been in contact with her, your voices together would sound awesome. But this is just a 'dream' of mine :)

Vivien Scalbert said...

I agree with you, Anette ! I have the promo CD of this album since a month, so I have listened it many times since then and I can say that this is a great album and every word you say about it is absolutely right... It is a very inventive album, very personnal and she seems to really have totally found her own identity with her music and her voice !

But besides this, don't forget that we are waiting for YOUR solo album too ! ;-)

Many people are supporting you as well and I am sure that many people believe that you can make a great solo album too, with your own tradermark and your own identity, wether it is "metal" or not, whatever style of yours it will be ! :-)

soraelegido said...

I listened to it some days ago. I usually prelisten and then buy it but I didn't like it so much :( My Winter Storm would remain her best in my opinion but it's always good to find different tastes and opinions :) I've also been longing for you to come up with some solo stuff which I'm sure I'm going to love before having listened to it. I usually read your blog to "stay tuned". I don't want to miss the day you release something :) Kisses, Anette. You're the greatest of greats.

Elmas said...

It's so nice of you to express your positive opinion on Tarja's work! For me personally, no matter how much I love her and her voice, it just seems like what I've heard from this album so far is pretty "washed" in terms of style and originality, doesn't give me any impact whatsoever. Hope the the rest of the songs will make me change my mind.

Have a great weekend Anette!

Anette Olzon said...

Lucas: I love those two songs too;=) And never enough and Victim of ritual;=)

White_lily: No, I dont know them but great songs they´ve made for her;=)

Shirley: THanks;=) And maybe we will sing a song one day, who knows? It would be fun;=) Take good care!

Poli: Of course not! I got it from the label;=)

Anette Olzon said...

Anya: Moi:=) I have never ever had anything against Tarja and has her albums at home. What the men in NW does and did has never been supported by me. Take care now and kiitoksia;=)

Matías Alarcón said...

Hi Anette, i'm from Chile.

Let me congratulate you about your marriage and your last child, Mio... be happy with your familly :D.

I just want to say you, that i like Nightwish since you became the lead singer, i've loved your work on Dark Passion Play and Imaginaerum, and many of your performances of the Tarja's era songs. I think and i know taht you have a great voice to sing everything you want...

i'm happy that you like the work of Tarja, my favourite songs of Colours In The Dark are... the most of the album ...

well, keep singing... we miss you here in Chile, and we wait for you in a concert here, singing what you really want...

for being in nightwish, KITOKSIA!! :D

bye ;D

Anya said...

Moi! :) I meant that you had a hard time by the fans of NW, although you really didn´t deserve it. I have gotten a superfint picture about you; I think you are so sweet, talented and probably the most beautiful person in the whole world. Can´t wait your solo career/new band! I truly love your voice!

Take care. <3

Bren Rivero said...

Hi Anette, I agree with your comment about Tarja's new album :) Victim Of Ritual is a explosive song!!! :D
And with this post you are showing us, there aren't have any hate with Tarja. Actually NW fans, still compare Tarja's era and your era (and now with Floor too) .
That, is increasing the hate day by day. And is so sad :(
So, Nightwish has a bad reputation on all the relation with their singers. Why? What's happening inside?
I'm a fan of Nightwish, Tarja and Floor. Recently, I heard some songs of you, and I want to say: you are doing a good job (Y)
I think, I love much your music as solist than when you was the singer in Nightwish. Sincerely, your voice has a Rock Style and the Heavy Metal is not for you. And I think, that was one of the issues in Nightwish, for the fans. The radical change on the voice!
But, I want to say: congratulations for your awesome job on Imaginaerum. Your voice feel more pure, free and you showed your qualities.
So, the end had a happy ending!
You looks more happy! :)

Take care :) Hugs!

Infernal Hunter said...

I'm very glad that you like Tarja. I like her too. The new album is the best of her solo! But... i didn't like the design of cover. But songs are more important than the albun-cover, aren't they? So, my favorites are: Lucid Dreamer, Never Enough, Mystique Voyage, Darkness and Deliverance.
But, of course all of them are very good! She finally found her style!

Alice said...

I'm already in love with Victim of Ritual, I can't wait to hear the rest :)

You're lucky to listen to it :)

I love Tarja's voice so much, so I really can't wait ^o^

And I can't wait for YOUR next album ^o^ I'm happy to read that you went back to studio ♥

Alice

Taaja said...

It's nice to see no nonsense hatred between singers.. :) I'm happy that you like her music.
I am looking forward to hear her album, too. It will be amazing for sure and what I've heard so far is beautiful.
I only very dislike the album covers.. really not for my taste. Previous ones were so much better and looked professional.

Greetings,
Taaja

Annette, I think it's so cool that you support Tarja and that you have never bullied her like the guys in Nightwish. You joined Nightwish, did some wonderful songs with the band and were a valuable part of the band in your own right, but you were never part of the drama that surrounds this band. I admire you for this. Very, very professional. :)

Hi anette !, How are you?
I listened the songs and I also watched the videos of never enough and victim of ritual. I like how she sings rrrrritual xD.
I can't wait to hear the whole album of tarja and of course your solo album too. So.. Do you have any collaborate song in your solo album? I mean.. what about tarja? haha I guess i'm not the only one here who wants that you and tarja make a song together for me it's like a dream have my two favorite singers in a song *.* that's why i'm asking :P
I wish you the best and a lot of success with your solo album, you are a wonderful person , great mom and an amazing singer so you deserve it ;), take care princess.

Simba said...

Don't you Just LOVE the concept of the album? The choirs? The lyrics? Medusa has struck me SO HARD that it hurts!

So great to know you enjoy Tarja's music. It really shows an interesting side to you.

Best wishes from chilly Buenos Aires!

Vinga said...

Hi Nettie, I'm proud of you too . Tarja is graet singer and musican, she found her way and motiwation, you know- Naomi ;)
The first album was good but some sleepy ;) second was better then first but now I cant wait for her new album, I'm really excited. I have her albums and I'm buy all the next ;) Hmmm I think you and she on the stage together will be awesome ;) I cant wait for your new album too and I hope then I can buy this in my hometown :)

I love you both, you are both awesome and beautifull women and singer :*
Love and hugs

Betty Blue said...

Oh, by the way. I was just wondering... You seem to like Tarja´s music. How did it feel to sing songs like "Bye Bye Beautiful"? Was it just a job to do?
Sorry if this question is impertinent. I´m just interested.

Ricardo Aguero said...

Tarja's new albums seems perfect! I can't wait to listen to it! :)

Lucas Spessoto said...

I love when you answer your fans! It really shows that you care about us :)

Too bad I wasn't able to see you here in Brazil when you came here :(

Jazmine M said...

I like Tarja I love her voice and hers solo career. And im waiting for you solo album Anette!

I would like that Tarja and you sing together a song or many songs. Woow That's could be a great duet!!! Two voices awesome -Love-

Alan Borges said...

Hello,

Anetteeeeeee D: you are so genial (sorry if my english, i'm form Argentina and right now i use Google traductor, and my english is really bad).It would be great to hear Tarja sing with you :D, and i don't know what else to say :P. I admire you Anette :D, i wish the best for you.

Alan

Alan Borges said...

Anette :D

Hello, sorry if my english is bad, i'm form Argentina and i don't know a lot of english haha (and, right now i use google traductor for help me). Would be great hear you and Tarja sing together :D. Hopefull, someday, come true this fact. I admire you, i wish the best.

Nalon said...

Hello Anette,

That is so great you like Tarja Music too;)

I had the chance at the beginn of july to go to a Pre-Listering from her Album in Hamburg.;)

And i have written a Preview about it, but i didn´t postet in my Blog, but in any Forums.
I was sad i couldn´t buy this Album there too:(

And i can not wait to hear your new Album, too. And a duett with you both were amazing:).

Have a nice Sunday with our Family.

Nalon

Psic. Aline said...

Hey Anette, it's so nice to see you talk about Tarja's solo career. I am a big fan of Tarja and agree with you, the album is wonderful. My favorite songs are Mystique Voyage, and Deliverance.

Success for your solo career too Anette!



Paulo Nathanael said...

Hi Anette, alright? Glad you recognize the talents of Tarja. Sorry sincerity, but I confess that initially I did not like you in the band. After a while I got used and was enjoying Nightwish with you. Now I admire you so much! ;)

Paulo Nathanael said...

When you will release an album? :)

Tom said...

Hi Anette! :-)

I must confess that I'm a massive fan of the music of Tarja! :-) A Tarjaholic! :-D In my life I've made 2 major musical discoveries. The first being Ocean Colour Scene whom I discovered way back in 1996. The 2nd is Tarja Turunen 16 years later in 2012 last year.

I buy all of Tarja's releases by import from a record shop in Finland ( where Tarja is from ) and I've ordered all the three different versions of Colours In The Dark! :-) I should have them in about just over one week! :-) Very excited! :-)

I'd love to know how you acquired a copy so early my favourite lady Viking :-)

Nikki Pellegrino said...

I admire you Anette to come out and be honest about loving Tarja's music. There was unnecessary hate comments about "Bring Tarja back" when you were with NW but you stood strong and that is amazing. I love the singles from her newer album also. You both are amazing and I cannot wait to hear more from you and your solo career :D Your demos sound amazing!

Isa-Nightwish said...

I love Tarja too <3

I'll see her in Paris very soon I'm so happy !! :D

Love

Isa

SarahCat Lover said...

I agree that Colours in the Dark is Tarja's best yet. She has really grown and developed her own style, which I adore! My favourites are Deliverance and Until Silence.

I hope you will be coming out with your own solo album soon, Anette! :)

Debs Nisbit said...

I heard Victim of Ritual the other day. Found it interesting but it didn't feel quite right to me (note I didn't say sound).

I received the pre-download of ReVamp's WildCard a few days ago and I'm still amazed by it. Someone has already put it up in youtube (I've sent Floor the links)..I'm kinda disappointed that a "fan" would do that. From listening you can tell they've really worked hard on this album and for someone to carelessly throw it on youtube where it can be ilegally downloaded...some of the fans who commented on the videos encouraged people to go buy the album (either preorder or wait till release) to support ReVamp.

Rosana said...

Tarja is really good singer and this new cd seems to be great! She is here in Brazil to participate Angra dvd in this Sunday \ o / you bring good vibes, only speaks of an artist and soon he comes to my country! haha. Have a nice Sunday with the family.

Magia Gelada said...

I am really looking forward for this álbum. Tarja's voice is incredible and I like her more solo. I dream that one day you and Tarja will have the opportunity to sing together.
Take care,
*****

Photographer Leia said...

I will have to give this one a try. Tarja's prior albums were good, and her voice was (as always) exceptional, but it was clear that she was still trying to find her "solo voice". (Not "vocal" voice, but "style" voice). It's nice to hear that you think she's really found her style. I'll have to check out this video and potential check out the album..

James Alina said...

Wow , my two favourite female vocalists getting along!!!I'm so happy!This post and Tarja's reply to it made me SO happy , made my eyes tear!!
You two are true ladies!

Isa-Nightwish said...

Hi dear

just to say you Tarja answer you in her facebook page here : https://www.facebook.com/tarjaofficial?hc_location=stream ;)

Love
Isa

Gonzalo said...

I agree with you. This is her best album of her solo career so far. Ive always liked Tarja but until now I used to think that her work was ok. I had the pleasure to hear the new stuff and I inmediatly loved it. Great sounds, great voices and great guitars. It is super solid.
It is a five stars album for me.
Have a great day !

Gonzalo.

Cardinal said...

Not that I ever doubted your quality as a human being, I think this post shows the kind of person you are.

Specially considering just like Tarja herself said, you suffered a lot when you were chosen to fill the spot she left in Nightwish.

You are a lovely person.
Greetings from Argentina!


Tiia said...

Tarja also sent her regards on her FB-page;

tarjaofficial

Today I found this in earMusic facebook.

Very kind and nice gesture from Anette who has had a tough time in her career because of me...without me having anything to do with it

Anette, thank you for listening to my new album and I am very happy that you liked it.
The best of luck for your future!

Christina Brom said...

Anette, it is simply wonderful and great that you write about Tarja. You know what I was thinking about? A duet for the both of you. As I have already told you in your former blog, I was not very excited about a new Nightwish singer and I was so sad when Tarja left but your great performance on "Imaginaerum" convinced me completely and I fell in love with your voice and your wonderful way. I now miss you and Tarja. By the way: belated congratulations to your wedding. The pictures are amazing. Yours Christina from Bavaria.

Vale311 said...

it is nice to see, after all that has been written from the sites and magazines, that there is no rivalry

Aikaterine said...

Anette, do you know Tarja has publicly thanked you for this blog post on her official Facebook page? Http://www.facebook.com/tarjaofficial

:)

jeff forbes said...

Is there any chance in the future of you and Miss Turunen performing together??

Emely - Sarah Richter said...

I think too that Tarja Turunen is a very good singer. :)
I love her voice at Nightwish and also than solo singer. ^^

But I love you Vioce too Anette. :)

Renato Martins said...

I'm happy reading this. I like to see your opinions are different about tarja regardless of NW guys opinions. And how abt you? Do you think about solo carreer too? I would love to hear you singing again.

Marianne Dumaray said...

Tarja's career is very good without Nightwish, I agree ! :)

Yuzuki said...

Really nice and clever from you to post about Tarja, now I appreciate you even more :'3 <3 Tarja's my biggest idol :D

evanalosecontrol said...

Hola escribo en español porque no se ingles :P Coincido totalmente con vos! Este disco es increíble! Tuve la oportunidad de escucharlo en una pre-escucha acá en Argentina. No se compara con nada, es único!!
Por otro lado, quiero felicitarte por tu carrera y por tu familia =) Espero ansiosa tu nuevo disco!! Gracias por tus hermosas palabras acerca de CITD!!! Besoss "from Rosario, Argentina" =)

Christina Brom said...

Dear Anette,

honestly, I think you are so great! It is amazingly wonderful that you have written about Tarja´s new album. We need a duet with both of you. This would be so interesting and although your voices seem not to fit at first glance, I guess it would be a very tension-filled (in a positive way) experiment. I was so sad when Tarja left Nightwish and I did not like the idea of a new singer at all but your performance on "Imaginaerum" really convinced me. Now I miss you both. By the way: belated congratulations to your wedding! The pictures are simply perfect. Yous Christina from Bavaria.

Hi Anette,

I have mixed feelings about the songs I've heard from Tarja's new album so far, but I'm finding that they are growing on me. :]

Have you listened to 'Epicloud' by The Devin Townsend Project? It's a very positive metal album, there is a gospel choir in a few of the songs, and I just thought I would mention it! It was my album of the year from 2012.

Rolf said...

Älskar dig söta Anette! *w*

Janine Engelbrecht said...

Hi Anette!

I'm so glad to have found your new blog; I've always followed your old one, and then when you closed it I couldn't manage to get hold pf the new one hehe

I finally saw the Nightwish movie (I know this is old news). I'm here in South Africa see, and my friend's parents only found the movie when they went to Finland for holiday :) You were awesome in the movie though!

I'm glad you like Tarja's new album; I have all her solo albums (even though they are very expensive here) :) If you were to release a solo album, I'd use all my savings to buy that too hehe your voice is just wonderful!

Hope you are keeping well, I'll be on yor blog every day again from now on :)

Lots of love, Janine

Rob Caudle said...

I have to agree Anette! I also think that some of Tarja's best work has been solo. Now she gets to be creative and be a part of writing. As a vocalist myself (and a fan if you both and even of Nightwish) I believe having input in the writing process improves a vocalist's talent and connection to the songs. Also, I must say that I think it is classy that you both respect one another as people and artists. It makes me an even bigger fan. Cheers and best wishes!

yousefsam said...

Its such an awesome album! i love her and i love you too! ♡♡

fede140 said...

Hi Anette,
This blog post is featured by Tarja on her facebook page. This is her comment, in case you haven't seen it yet:

Tarja:
"Today I found this in earMusic facebook.

Very kind and nice gesture from Anette who has had a tough time in her career because of me...without me having anything to do with it

Anette, thank you for listening to my new album and I am very happy that you liked it.
The best of luck for your future!"

I am actually surprised that you two don't share bad feelings about each other. Since we, the fans, don't know a lot about what's going on inside the band's "kitchen" nor the people around "it", most of us assumed that things aren't good between you and Tarja. I am a very old fan of Nightwish and Tarja and when you became the frontwoman of the band, I have had very hard time getting used to that change. In time though, I did and I started to like you. The fact that you are not with NW anymore is pretty upsetting, it almost feels like when they fired Tarja. I hope that things are working out for you anyway.
Wish you all the best! You are an amazing person.
Alex

Moi, Anette!

I am very surprised to see Tarja and you talking like this, I've never thought to see this in my life! It could mean a start of one bright friendship in future. What I'm hoping for, is seeing you in Serbia one day, 'cause I really need to hear the lady who recorded Imaginaerum with Nightwish. You brought a new idea to Nightwish: charisma, constant smile and emotion, a completely new energy, and I liked it. I am not satisfied with Floor Jansen singing old songs, but, oh well, it is their choice, after all. Thank you for all the positive feelings you gave us, and may the colours of your heart light your path in the dark, unknown future ;-)

Regards from Serbia,

Kai
