Finnish vocalist Tarja Turunen has announced a new LP called “Dark Christmas”, the sequel to her 2017 album “From Spirits And Ghosts (Score For A Dark Christmas)”, which is going to be released on November 10 via earMUSIC. Now, the Kitee-born soprano has shared the first single “Frosty The Snowman” and you can watch the official video below.
With enchanting and captivating renditions of well-known Christmas songs such as Wham! ‘s “Last Christmas“, Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You“, Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmastime’, classics such as “Jingle Bells“, “Frosty The Snowman” and “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer“, as well as Tarja‘s brand new original song “Dark Christmas“, it’s the perfect album for those who want to embrace the holiday spirit while exploring a more mysterious side of the season.
“It was fascinating to dive into this new world,” says Tarja. “You will appreciate these Christmas songs with our spooky arrangements truly sound in a way they never did before. It was my pleasure to team up once again with Jim Dooley and Tim Palmer. I hope you will dig in our take of a Dark Christmas spirit.“
The release will be accompanied by 12 music videos – one video for each song on the album, as well as a full-length music feature film, which will be available on all supported platforms with an immersive Dolby Atmos audio mix.
