With the release of Tarja’s upcoming studio album “The Shadow Self” only being six weeks away, the queen of heavy rock released the official music video for her new single “Innocence” last week.

Directed by Argentinean movie director Mariano Cattaneo and filmed in Buenos Aires, the video surprises with a movie like optic and a corresponding, emotional plot.
But it is not only the video clip that leaves you astonished – so does the song.

“Innocence” perfectly captures the essence of Tarja: her unique way of melting heavy rock and classical music. Adding a melancholic piano etude inspired by Chopin, a driven beat and a striking chorus, the first single from “The Shadow Self” leads the way to even more inspiring music of Tarja.


The single and video versions of “Innocence” will also be available as part of the limited box set of “The Shadow Self” in an exclusive 7”vinyl+CD format.

“The Shadow Self” is going to be released on August 5th, 2016 in various formats, including 1CD Standard Edition, Special Edition Digipak CD+DVD, Limited Box Set (CD+DVD “The Shadow Self”, 7”vinyl+CD “Innocence”, 7”vinyl+CD “No Bitter End”, picture frame, 3 postcards, poster, t-shirt in size L), 2LP+Download and Digital.
