Former NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen was recently interviewed by the Brazilian show "PlayZone" on PlayTV about her forthcoming solo album, "My Winter Storm". Watch the three-minute clip below.
As previously reported, Tarja Turunen's new single, "I Walk Alone", entered the German chart at position No. 16.
Turunen will perform "I Walk Alone" on November 30 at the farewell fight of the German female boxing champion (and Doro Pesch's close friend) Regina Halmich. The event will take place at the DM Arena in Karlsruhe, Germany.
Tarja's new solo album, "My Winter Storm", will be released as an extremely limited double-LP version (only 300 copies available worldwide) on December 17 via Britain's What Records.
