Ahead of the release of her next solo album ‘In The Raw’ to be released on August 30th, Erik De’Viking sits down with indomitable Tarja Turunen to discuss the album and the process behind it.
I still keep on learning and I hope that will never end. Because it would be very horrible for me one day wake up and say in the morning, “Hey now I know everything about lyrical singing.” Or, “Hey now I know everything about singing in general.” Oh my God, That would be the worst day of my life, I mean, really. There is always, always room to learn.
This evening surpassed your average show as Tarja’s vocals, no matter what genre she sings in, has captured the audience’s heart.
The album classically opens up with “Innocence” as the piano dramatically flows to an instant engagement.
Elan is quite simply stunning. Everything melds together beautifully here. This is the sort of song that wouldn’t have felt out of place on the soundtrack to Lord of the Rings.
