PR: Tarja reaches first Top 10 chart positions for the album “Colours In The Dark” and announces new single “500 Letters”

Tarja’s recently released “Colours In The Dark” (August 30th, 2013) is definitely one of the brightest albums in rock in 2013.  Praised by worldwide media as “simply fantastic!” (Sonic Seducer, GER),“Tarja’s strongest solo release to date” (Classic Rock Prog, UK), “Overwhelming, surprising and massive” (Aardschok NL), ”best solo album so far” (Soundi, FI), “a superb performance” (Rock Hard, IT), and “by far and away the finest that Tarja has sounded for the best part of a decade” (Powerplay, UK), the album proves to be a milestone for heavy symphonic rock.

The response from media and fans contributed to make “Colours In The Dark” a worldwide chart success: a few days after its release the album has already collected five Top 10 entries (# 5 in Finland and Russia, # 6 in Germany, #8 in Poland and # 9 in Czech Republic). And this is just the beginning..

Coinciding with the successful first chart week, earMUSIC is happy to announce ‘500 Letters’ as the second single taken from “Colours In The Dark”. The song will be released as a strictly limited CD single and download at the end of September.

500 Letters’ is in many ways Tarja’s most private song ever. With its very personal song writing and delicate topic, it offers a great emotional insight into the artist herself.
Touching the sensitive topic “stalkers”, Tarja allows her fans a closer look into her thoughts. ‘500 Letters’ is open to interpretations – being half reality, half fiction.
The heavy, yet highly melodic song gets stuck in your mind after the first listen with its haunting melody and touching, exceptional vocals. Despite its very catchy key note, the bombastic sound still is full of darkness and dramatic structure and takes Tarja’s song writing one step further.

Regular updates can be found on Tarja’s official album website where Tarja personally blogs to keep in touch with her fans.

Tarja will perform songs from her new album on her forthcoming tour.
