Tarja Turunen Releasing Surprise Album In June

(Prog) Tarja Turunen has revealed details of a prequel album to be launched ahead of her solo title The Shadow Self. It's due on August 5 - but The Brightest Void, a nine-track work, will arrive on June 3, complete with guest appearances from singer Michael Monroe, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and a new mix of Paradise (What About Us), her Within Temptation collaboration from 2013.

Tarja says: "Surprise, surprise! During the process of recording The Shadow Self, I realized that there were so many tracks, too many too dear to me, for just one album. So I decided to keep nothing for myself and to share all my favorite new songs with you.

"The Brightest Void gives more than a first taste of The Shadow Self. I hope the release of the prequel sweetens the wait until August and that you will like the songs as much as I do." Read more here.
