NEWS: Tarja video for single 'Innocence' released ahead of new album

WITH the release of Tarja’s upcoming studio album “The Shadow Self” only being six weeks away, the queen of heavy rock released the official music video for her new single “Innocence” last week. (See below)

Directed by Argentinean movie director Mariano Cattaneo and filmed in Buenos Aires, the video has a movie like optic and a corresponding, emotional plot.

“Innocence” captures the essence of Tarja: her unique way of melting heavy rock and classical music.

Adding a melancholic piano etude inspired by Chopin, a driven beat and a striking chorus, the first single from “The Shadow Self” leads the way to even more inspiring music of Tarja.

The song is available as iTunes Instant Grat with immediate effect as part of the preorder of “The Shadow Self”: smarturl.it/Tarja_TSS_iTunes

The single and video versions of “Innocence” will also be available as part of the limited box set of “The Shadow Self” in an exclusive 7”vinyl+CD format.

“The Shadow Self” is to be released on August 5th, 2016 in various formats, including 1CD Standard Edition, Special Edition Digipak CD+DVD, Limited Box Set (CD+DVD “The Shadow Self”, 7”vinyl+CD “Innocence”, 7”vinyl+CD “No Bitter End”, picture frame, 3 postcards, poster, t-shirt in size L), 2LP+Download and Digital.
