Former NIGHTWISH Vocalist Tarja Turunen & Current NIGHTWISH Vocalist Floor Jansen Discuss Their Music In New Chat

They're both working on new music.

Current Nightwish vocalist Floor Jansen and ex-Nightwish vocalist Tarja Turunen recently took part in a 50-minute Instagram live chat, where they covered everything from COVID-19 downtime to the music they're working on.

"I'm writing new music," said Jansen. "I would like to release a solo record at some point. It's super exciting, and time demanding to build up something from scratch, You need to get a whole new ball rolling."

"That's what I've been doing this year — trying to give that some kind of form," added Turunen. "I could only say it's not metal and it's not rock. But then there's so much more you can do. And there are still certain flavors to my sound. I have a hang for dark music and melodramatic stuff, and I'm surely not a pop queen; I'll never be that. So I'm kind of looking into what it is then. And that's a slow, slow process."
