Tarja Week: Our Great Divide and Boy and the Ghost

(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 "Our Great Divide" and "Boy and the Ghost".

Our Great Divide: In my career I have performed several great ballads. I love ballads and I was looking for a song where I could feel myself free and flow with the music. Anders and Mattias played me an amazing melody and I added my touch to some parts of the song. We wrote the lyrics with Hanne during beautiful sunrises in Ibiza. It started as a love song...but I cannot say where it ended.

Boy and the Ghost: The song represents the dark spirit of the album. BATG grows little by little in an unexpected way that becomes massive and mind blowing. It has a strange and mysterious story in its lyrics. Music flows like in a musical. Is the best companion to Sing For Me. Like two parts of a same song, both in music and lyrics.

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