DARK CHRISTMAS FROM TARJA

0

Tarja Turunen will release a Christmas album, “From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas)”, on November 17 via earMusic.  The album includes eleven Christmas classics and brings them to a never-before-seen level, uniquely blending Tarja’s classically trained voice with darker gothic influences. Besides covering classic carols, “From Spirits And Ghosts” features a twelfth track, the brand new original song “Together”. This song is aligned with the dark sound of the album and embodies the theme of ghosts and mysticism throughout, in a brilliant, Tarja-styled manner. “Producing a dark Christmas album in the middle of the summer is a very interesting process, especially if you are doing it by the turquoise Caribbean Sea,” Tarja said. “It’s significantly different from the snowy Christmas that I am used to in my home country Finland — another proof that the darkness comes from deep within”, she continues. About the direction of the album she commented: “On this album, I explored the other side of Christmas — the Christmas of the lonely people and the missing ones, the Christmas for those that do not find joy in the blinking lights and the jingle bells.” Watch a trailer below:
