Tarja Announces “Best Of: Living The Dream” + Shares “Eye of the Storm”

TARJA TO RELEASE BEST OF: LIVING THE DREAM ON DECEMBER 2 VIA EARMUSIC

SHARES NEW TRACK “EYE OF THE STORM” — LISTEN

Tarja will release her first-ever Best Of: Living The Dream on December 2 via earMUSIC.Pre-order it here.

Today also marks the release of Tarja’s previously unreleased single “Eye of the Storm.” The brand-new song unites Tarja’s trademark sound to a powerful, emotional anthem.

“It was the right time to finally release this song,” Tarja explains. “It has a very deep feeling of closure in it. It’s been influenced by two very important countries in my life: Finland and Argentina. It’s an internal battle inside of me. Because at that time in life, I was really searching for my place in this world, where I belong as a person, as an individual.”

Looking back on 15 extremely successful years of the Finnish singer’s solo career, the Best Of contains not only Tarja’s most well-known tracks, many of them newly remastered at Sterling Sound, and personal favorites from all six studio albums — My Winter StormWhat Lies BeneathColours in the DarkThe Brightest VoidThe Shadow Self, and In the Raw — but also the never-before-heard song “Eye of the Storm.”

“After all these years, I still really can’t believe it’s time for me to release a proper ‘Best Of’ album,” Tarja says. “So many beautiful moments, unbelievable. It has been a dream to put together this collection. And I really hope that you will enjoy this as much as I did while making it.”

The compilation was hand-picked by Tarja herself and will be released on December 2in a wide variety of formats. Each featuring exclusive rarities and/or the previously unreleased two-hour Circus Life concert, which is eagerly awaited by fans — as well as upgraded versions of Tarja’s music videos. Rounded out by high-quality artwork, deluxe liner notes, and many formats to choose from, this collection is a delight for casual fans, as well as superfans.
