Tarja Week: Sing for Me and Minor Heaven

(antiMusic) Tarja Turunen made her mark on the world as the frontwoman of Nightwish. Now she strikes out on her own with her solo debut 'My Winter Storm'. The album soared to the top spot in her native Finland and went gold in one day! To celebrate the upcoming US release of the album we asked Tarja to pick her favorite tracks from the disc and tell us a little about them. Today she tells us about "Sing for Me" and "Minor Heaven".

Sing for me: I received the song when the band was nearly done with the recordings of the album in Ireland. I heard it and immediately loved it. It fits perfectly to the complete sound and idea of the album with its orchestral and choir arrangements, spooky mood and gorgeous melodies. This was one of the few songs that I didn't change at all, which is quite amazing considering that I received it so late.

Minor Heaven: I have been asked already what means Minor Heaven. I don't think this
question has an answer. MH is what you want it to be. I fell in love with the melody and I imagined the song as one of the beautiful lieds that I have been performing in my classical concerts. I asked my dear friend Izumi to play piano to reinforce that idea of mine. The song evolves into a bigger sound with orchestra and guitars and I do like the combination of them very much.

The CD hits US stores on Feb 26th but you can preview tracks and learn more - right here!
