Lyrics video

Dear friends,


Greetings from sunny Austin, Texas. I arrived here yesterday after a veeeeeeery long journey. I am still fighting to get better from my illness and trying to think positive about what’s there to come.

We filmed a lyric video in Zlin, Czech Republic a week ago for the song Never Enough. I didn’t want to make a traditional, boring lyric video for the song, so I am going to appear on the video not just the lyrics of the song.

Anyway, this video is not what we can call the official first music video from my new album, but just an improved version of a lyric video 🙂

The filming took only couple hours with Martin who worked also on directing my first solo live rock DVD Act I. You will get to see the video pretty soon.

At the moment we are hands on the last orchestra and choir arrangements with Jim Dooley. Everything sounds amazing and Jim is doing again a great job. The orchestra and choir on my albums are having big roles, so this part of the production is very important.

I am in Austin because of Tim Palmer. He has already started working on the mixes of the album and I am here to finalize them together with him in these next days. I am sure the album will sound great after Tim has done his magic. He worked with me on my last album already, so I know already how he works. It is exciting to think that the album is going to be ready in around 2 weeks from now. It has been a long, but very rewarding process again.

We are working at this right moment closely with the record company to decide when to announce the album name, album cover and track list.


With love, Tarja

    Hi Tarja! 🙂

    This time last week I was in Prague Czech Republic enjoying watching you and Mike in Beauty & The Beat! 🙂 You were both fantastic! 🙂 I was in the 4th row of seats very near the stage 🙂 Cheers to you and Mike plus everyone else involved for a fabulous show! 🙂 I flew over from England to Prague to see you! 🙂 I had a few days in Prague first then finished the final night by coming to your show! 🙂 I thought the humor element in the show was a great touch! 🙂 It was already a classy show and the humor element made it even more so! 🙂 Everything song you sang was fabulous! 🙂 And I thought it was nice that you performed 3 of your own songs! 🙂 I’ve always loved The Reign, I Walk Alone, and I was so pleased you sang Into The Sun! 🙂 I love Into The Sun and before the show I was hoping you’d sing it 🙂

    I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well 🙁 I hope you get better very soon! 🙂

    Thanks for the update on how the new album is coming along. I look forward to seeing the lyric video for Never Enough 🙂

    I really wish it was this time last week again so I could be in the company of you and Mike plus everyone else again! 🙂 I’m definately coming again in the future! 🙂

    Tarja you’re the best singer I’ve ever heard! 🙂 So much so that initially I actually felt a little bit intimidated of you when you started singing shorty after you first arrived on stage! 🙂

    You’re actually the best singer in the world! 🙂 No exaggeration! 🙂 You’re that good! 🙂

    Please bring Beauty & The Beat plus your Rock Outfit to England! 🙂 We’d love to have you here! 🙂

    Cheers again for a great evening and a great memory! 🙂

    Tom x

    I’m glad to read that you keep going on the road, every and each time that I get to know something new about you makes my day shine.
    You are an inspiration and a ray of light in my life. Can’t really express how much you mean to me.
    Also, I’m excited about all the new stuff coming up, and more than glad to see that the choir and orchestra are having great roles (I’m having a vibe that says that I can expect some kind of soundtrack feeling on this one, hmm?)
    Anyways, I hope you get all well soon, my best wishes are with you.

    P.D; Your performance of “O mio babbino caro” was flawless, I wasn’t there, but I saw a video, and I admit, I was too excited that I cried a little bit.

    Greetings from Mexico, from a great admirer of you.

  29. 04/15/2013

    Ah, I was listening to you right now, trying to find the “meaning of life” or “the secret of the universe.” Just as I usually do. Nothing yet …

    What are dreams?

    “God” would have told me about the final song “medusa”.

    “God” had placed me in studio at the “are you the Joker, King or Queen?”, and I could feel that magic.

    “God” told me the name of this album, which would be formed by three words, what I particularly do not like, I like one single name, or two. Anyway, I could listen the preview of the album (in dream), and “God” would have told me that my life would improve after listening to this album. The album would be amazing. Maybe the last one? Tarja went up another level in her musical ability, that’s for sure!

    I feel comfortable telling premonitory dreams, because it’s something routine for me.
    For example, God had also told me of the song “Butterflies”, by Sharon Corr, a year ago.

    Create Planets is easy. But God, whatever it is, is really involved with such things as covers of metal albums. This requires a force and intelligence really supernatural.

    Ok, it’s ridiculous, but I definitely had dreamed that third photo. Perhaps the first one too.

    Note: please do not delete my comment, it may seem that it was a joke, but everything I said came from my heart, my soul, whatever.

  30. 04/15/2013

    You’re my favorite singer, and I cannot wait till you start feeling better to continue your journey. I will be waiting for your new album soon! 🙂

    *hugs* Take care and get better soon!
